The Horse Chestnut trees planted by Alfred Vogel in the fields have grown to splendid maturity. Not to be confused with the edible sweet chestnut, the hard, round seeds of the Horse Chestnut are assiduously gathered each autumn.
How it works:
The constituent of Aesculus which has been most studied is aescin. It has the ability to improve the tone of veins, reducing leakage into the surrounding tissue.
Often varicose veins are more troublesome in warmer weather and starting a course of Aesculus during the early summer can prevent the distressing symptoms emerging. For best results, I find that a three to four month course is advisable. Those suffering from varicose veins will also benefit from ensuring that constipation is not a factor.
