Lambert’s Horse Chestnut Complex is a unique formula that combines 4 herbs in just one tablet. Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) Seed is included at a full 300mg in this formula. It has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine and is widely recommended by practitioners today. Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is a native Mediterranean plant that is well regarded as a suitable partner to horse chestnut seed and we have added a significant 112mg.
Horse chestnut is probably the most popular herb used in the treatment of varicose veins. It is the seeds of the horse chestnut tree which are used medicinally – and these are the same seeds gathered each autumn for the game of conkers. Butcher’s broom is a plant. The root is used to make medicine for haemorrhoids, gallstones, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), and for symptoms of poor blood circulation such as pain, heaviness, leg cramps, leg swelling, varicose veins, itching, and swelling. Butcher’s broom is also used as a laxative, as a diuretic to increase urine output, to reduce swelling, and to speed the healing of fractures. In some cultures, the roots are eaten in much the same way as asparagus. How does it work? The chemicals in butcher’s broom might cause the blood vessels to narrow or constrict. Butcher’s broom might improve blood circulation in the legs by preventing blood from “pooling” in the veins. (Source: WebMD.com)
