Butcher’s broom root (Ruscus aculeatus L.) dry extract, Red vine leaves (Vitis vinifera L.) dry extract, Horse chestnut bark (Aesculus hippocastanum L.) dry extract, Centella leaves (Centella asiatica L.) dry extract.
Its properties are mainly related to the phytosterols that give the holly diuretic properties with the elimination of chlorides, sedative and anti-inflammatory urinary tract, it has beneficial effects against kidney stones, cystis, gout, arthritis and non-articular rheumatism. The butcher’s broom is also useful in the varicose veins with vasoconstrictor action exerted especially at the capillary level therapy (it is in fact the most powerful natural vasoconstrictor that is known). It has an anti-inflammatory that acts by decreasing the capillary fragility, increasing the tone of the venous wall thus favoring the blood circulation which results in decrease of heaviness and swelling of the legs. Also exerts a beneficial effect against hemorrhoids and phlebitis.
The leaf therefore has properties similar to Vitamin P and is used in the functional and clinical manifestations dependent on the venous system, in particular lower limb venous insufficiency, capillary fragility, hemorrhoids and, as an adjunct to drug therapy, in phlebitis. In plant complex they are also present proanthocyanidis: these flavonoid type substances were detected very interesting as antioxidant agents and are particularly suitable, as well as in the treatment of peripheral circulatory disorders, for the prevention of chronic diseases, degenerative and aging processes skin.
The healing properties associated to Aesculus Hippocastanum are many, associated with both peripheral circulatory apparatus that in the treatment of inflammatory character issues. One of the activities offered is the treatment of permeability and capillary fragility, then contributing to the resolution of pain, swelling, itching and heaviness. It is recommended to use in the treatment of varicose veins, chilblains and post-phlebitic syndromes. It then offers a lymphatic drainage action and helps to remove the interstitial fluid accumulation and be beneficial even in the case of hemorrhoids and cellulite.
The intake of the plant makes it possible to preserve the structure and tone of the vessel walls due to its phlebotonic activities. In fact, the centella, reinforcing and elasticising the walls of blood vessels, promotes proper peripheral circulation and is therefore suitable for preventing and treating varicose veins, reducing the dilation of the veins, capillary permeability and subcutaneous edema. Therefor it is useful to treat venous insufficiency and then the swelling, heaviness in the legs and ankles, resulting from it, but also counteract the pain in veins, nocturnal leg cramps, hemorrhoids and microangiopathy caused by diabetes.
