Venaforce (Horse Chestnut Tablets)
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.
Benefits and features of Venaforce® Horse Chestnut:
- Herbal varicose veins remedy
- Treats symptoms of varicose veins

The botanical name of the horse chestnut tree is Aesculus hippocastanum and because of this, horse chestnut seed preparations are sometimes also known simply as Aesculus.
