Venescin Gel - horse chestnut seed extract, which reduces swelling and increases venous tone.
Horse chestnut seed extract standardized to around 20 percent aescin (escin) is used for its venotonic effect, vascular protection, anti-inflammatory and free radical scavenging properties. Primary indication is chronic venous insufficiency. A recent Cochrane Review found the evidence suggests that Horse Chestnut Seed Extract is an efficacious and safe short-term treatment for chronic venous insufficiency.
Aescin reduces fluid leaks to surrounding tissue by reducing both the number and size of membrane pores in the veins.
