Tired legs from running or are you on your feet all day?

Increasing circulation is the best way to help your body to repair itself. Tired and painful legs, especially during tough training sessions can set you back and sometimes it feels the recovery takes forever. Using horse-chestnut with its natural pain relief and soothing properties should be part of your training programme to prevent pain, swelling or cramps in your legs.
Horse chestnut (aesculus hippocastanum) seed extract is traditionally used for chronic venous insufficiency. This circulation problem prevents the efficient return of blood from the legs to the heart. The result of this can be varicose veins, pain, ankle swelling, itching down to poor circulation, and also leg cramps. Horse chestnut can reduce the inflammation and oedema, and can also enhances the tone and fluid balance of veins. The active ingredient is aescin or escin, it is a mixture of saponins with anti-inflammatory, vasoconstrictor and vasoprotective effects found in Aesculus hippocastanum and it makes about 3-6% of the actual Horse Chestnut seed. Studies have shown that it seems to slow down the leaking of fluids within overworked capillaries and at the same time strengthens the veins and promotes general vein health.
