Venous insufficiency is a complex state involving an increase in
capillary and vein pressure, an increase in capillary permeability, a
blood stasis, an edema, inflammation, etc. Its precise cause is still
unknown but many risk factors have been identified: excess weight,
hypertension, tobacco, alcohol, lack of physical activity, bad diet,
pregnancy, standing or sitting stationary work (nurse, pharmacist,
clerk), constipation, etc.
The symptoms of venous insufficiency may be benign, like heavy and tired
legs, but may also be much more serious, like varicose veins, painful
hemorrhoids and even phlebitis. Aside from surgery (that eliminates the
diseased veins but does not stop the progression of varicose veins),
there are few treatments for venous insufficiency. Support stockings are
effective but so uncomfortable that very few people wear them.
Horse Chestnut seed extract is used for venous insufficiency problems
(including phlebitis), fragile capillaries, liver congestion, diarrhea
The gel form adds to Horse Chestnut effects (see Venaforce® tablets or
Venaforce® Liquid information sheets) a refreshing local effect,
increasing the relief of tired legs. For more effectiveness, combine
Venaforce® gel with Venaforce® liquid or tablets.
Many clinical references confirm the topical application of Horse
Chestnut seed extract to relieve poor circulation problems and symptoms.
For example, a study conducted on healthy volunteers demonstrated the
efficacy of a Horse Chestnut seed gel, standardized to a 2% aescine
content, to speed up hematoma (bruise) healing and to relieve pain.(1)
A 1997 clinical study on Venaforce® gel was conducted on 71 patients
suffering from chronic venous insufficiency with edema of the lower
limbs. After 6 weeks, the diameter of the ankle was significantly
reduced by 0.7 cm; symptoms had dropped by 60% according to the scale
used (edema, tired and heavy legs, stretching sensation, pain, burning
sensation, etc.); and 85% of patients deemed Venaforce® gel
contraindications and interactions
In topical application, there are no contraindications except in cases
of allergy to one of the ingredients.
Do not massage the legs with a gel in cases of thrombosis.
The most important risk factors of venous insufficiency can be
controlled. It is therefore necessary to modify these factors (lose
excess weight; improve the diet by eating more fruits, vegetables and
whole grains; stop smoking; exercise; etc.) to effectively stop the
