Premier Horse Chestnut Compounds
Support for Healthy Legs

Word is spreading in the United States about the benefits of horse chestnut—a traditional botanical widely used in Europe to support vein integrity, especially in the legs.

Planetary Herbals offers three scientifically advanced horse chestnut products: Horse Chestnut Vein Strength™, Full Spectrum™ Horse Chestnut, and Horse Chestnut Cream. These products were developed in light of the latest advances in modern pharmacological research and the clinical experience of one of the world’s foremost herbal authorities, Michael Tierra, L.Ac. An acupuncturist, herbalist and author, Michael integrates classic Western, Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal formulations with the knowledge gained from modern research and more than 30 years of clinical experience.

The result—three premier horse chestnut compounds, unsurpassed for dependability and consumer satisfaction.

Centuries of Use
Horse chestnut’s botanical properties were first described by Italian medical botanist Mathiole in 1565, and the plant was widely used throughout Europe by the 18th century. In 1896, a French researcher, Artault de Vevey, reported on horse chestnut’s benefits for the health of blood vessels.

Clinical Studies Document Horse Chestnut’s Benefits
Today a growing body of research is confirming horse chestnut’s benefits for circulatory health—turning horse chestnut into one of the top ten best-selling herbs in Europe.

Horse chestnut’s benefits are associated with a variety of constituents, but especially with a group of saponins collectively known as aescin. Horse chestnut is also a valuable source of bioflavonoids, including the subclass of flavonoids known as proanthocyanidins, renowned for their antioxidant activity. When taken internally, research has shown horse chestnut’s constituents to strengthen the capillaries (the minute blood vessels that connect arteries and veins), support normal blood flow, and support the normal exchange of fluids through cell membranes.

Full Spectrum™ Horse Chestnut
Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum Horse Chestnut features horse chestnut seed extract, standardized to deliver a minimum of 20% aescin, one of horse chestnut's primary beneficial constituents.
