Horse Chestnut – Herb Uses and Benefits Al…

Horse Chestnut – Herb Uses and Benefits

Although the leaves, bark, and flowers have been used in traditional herbal medicine, it is the big, shiny brown nut of the horse chestnut tree which is of greatest medicinal interest.

From them, an extract is obtained which is used to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels so that blood flow from the veins in the legs back to the heart improves.

The dried conkers contain 3-6% of a mixture of triterpene saponins, known by the common name aescin (escin).

It is aescin which is considered the main active ingredient responsible for the strengthening effect on the veins and capillaries.
