Centuries of Use of Horse Chestnut
Horse chestnut's botanical properties were first described by Italian medical
botanist Mathiole in 1565, and the plant was widely used throughout Europe by
the 18th century. In 1896, a French researcher, Artault de Vevey, reported on
horse chestnut's benefits for the health of blood vessels.
Benefits of Horse Chestnut
Today a growing body of research is confirming horse chestnut's benefits for
circulatory health - turning horse chestnut into one of the top ten best-selling
herbs in Europe. Horse chestnut's benefits are associated with a variety of
constituents, but especially with a group of saponins collectively known as
aescin.Horse chestnut is also a valuable source of bioflavonoids, including
the subclass of flavonoids known as proanthocyanidins, renowned for their antioxidant
activity. When taken internally, research has shown horse chestnut's constituents
to strengthen the capillaries (the minute blood vessels that connect arteries
and veins), support normal blood flow, and support the normal exchange of fluids
through cell membranes.
