Used to help in the relief of cold and heavy feeling in legs and feet. May assist in the management of varicose veins.
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.
Aesculus hippocastanum is the botanical name for the Horse Chestnut tree, or sometimes, simply the Aesculus tree. It is the fruit of the tree which is used to make our Aesculus tincture. These are harvested and used whilst still fresh to make this herbal tincture.
The Horse Chestnut trees planted by Alfred Vogel in the Bioforce fields have grown to splendid maturity. Not to be confused with the edible sweet chestnut, the hard, round seeds of the Horse Chestnut are assiduously gathered each autumn for use in this tincture.

What is Aesculaforce?
Aesculus fruit are familiar to many as conkers. They contain a valuable constituent called aescin which is useful for helping maintain the health of veins.
Aesculus hippocastanum is a large tall deciduous tree, growing to heights of over 30 metres. It has strong branches and bears characteristic palm-like leaves – each Aesculus leaf has between 5 to 7 leaflets measuring up to 30cm in length.
Aesculus flowers are similarly characteristic looking with groups of up to 50 white flowers on a single stalk. From these, between 1 and 5 fruit develop – they are green and spiky, with a shell holding the Aesculus seed (2-3cm in diameter) which we call conkers, or horse-chestnuts.
Aesculus trees are native to Europe and are said to originate from a relatively small area in the Balkan mountains. It is now widely found in many parts of the world with a temperate climate.
At A. Vogel, we insist that only freshly picked horse chestnut seeds are used to make Circulation Support. This ensures that the extract obtained contains the active ingredients that help with the symptoms of varicose veins.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
