The lore of many elderly in France was that carrying a horse chestnut around in one’s pocket would prevent hemorrhoids and varicose veins. Probably a more effective way to deal with these ailments is to use this wonderful tincture!
Each ml contains 200 mg of organically grown horse chestnut seeds (Aesculus hippocastanum). It is a 1:5 seed extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Horsechestnut is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine to help treat haemorrhoids and varicose veins.
For best results, take horse chestnut on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml, 3 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, medicinal drink!
Caution: Please consult with your healthcare practitioner prior to using horsechestnut if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!. Horsechestnut may cause headaches, dizziness, gastric irritation or itchiness in some sensitive people. If any sign of hypersensitivity occurs please stop taking this herb.
