Dee Cee Labs Horsechestnut Extract
Natural Horsechestnut Extract SupplementDee Cee Labs Horsechestnut Extract is a natural remedy that helps support healthy circulation in the legs. The Horsechestnut (or horse chestnut), which is also known as the Spanish chestnut, should not be confused with the seeds (nuts) of the sweet chestnut (the one we're all used to eating at Thanksgiving). You should never take the seeds right off the tree to make a home remedy for yourself; the seeds are poisonous and they must be carefully treated by a professional to extract the active ingredient we use in our product.
Benefits of HorseChestnut ExtractThe main therapeutic ingredient of the horsechestnut extract has been identified by scientists as, aescin. Aescin reduces inflammation and tones up vein walls by plugging up minute holes and leaks that have developed in the tiny blood vessels, thus allowing blood to flow back to the heart more easily.
An extract containing the active ingredients from the seed has been used for several centuries in Germany for the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency. In Germany, more prescriptions are written for the oral, horsechestnut extract as a treatment for chronic venous insufficiency than for any other drug or supplement. A variety of clinical trials have documented the efficacy of horsechestnut extract supplements in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency and related circulatory problems.
Horsechestnut extract supplements have been shown to be very nontoxic in numerous animal studies. In fact, the American Medical Association published a review article of horsechestnut in the Archives of Dermatology which revealed the evidence to support the use of this supplement in cases of chronic venous insufficiency. The researchers pointed out minor side-effects occurred in less than 3 percent of subjects taking horsechestnut seed extract, which included stomach upset, calf spasm, dizziness, nausea, headache, itching, and allergic skin reactions. Overall, side-effects from horsechestnut seed extract are mild.
