Get a leg up on sluggish, swollen vessels with this ‘horse snack’

Your legs are weakcramping… and swollen

And they feel so heavy, you can barely walk.

The vessels in your legs are FAILING you…

They aren’t able to sufficiently CIRCULATE blood back up into the rest of your body.

You’re too young to walk with a cane… or lose your independence.

But that’s the road you might be headed down, if you’ve been diagnosed with chronic venous insufficiency.

Fortunately, there’s a way to PROTECT your vessels… increase their tone … and help them CONTRACT to improve blood flow.

It can even EXTINGUISH inflammation and REDUCE swelling, too.

But you’ve got to use it in EXACTLY the right way to HARNESS its healing powers… or it could do more harm than good.

The efficiency plan to better leg health

Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is a type of fruit – not nut – that grows on trees native to the Balkan states and has appeared in ancient texts since the days of the Ottoman Empire.

Some folks say that horses liked to eat them along the trail, which is how they got their name.

But you don’t need to be a horse… or an equestrian… to reap its health benefits.

Because horse chestnut is an effective natural therapy against chronic venous insufficiency and its precursors — including hemorrhoids, varicose veins, and deep vein thrombosis.

While it contains many anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components, its most active compound appears to be a substance called escin , found in horse chestnut seeds.

One study found it to be EQUALLY as effective in beating back chronic venous insufficiency as compression stockings.

And that’s a relief for anyone who’s felt like those socks are SQUEEZING the life out of them!

Imagine watching your bloated calves and ankles literally SHRINK before your eyes!

And with less pain, you could have more energy to get up and moving and once again do the things that you love.

Now, eating a whole horse chestnut off the tree could be poisonous…

So you should rely EXCLUSIVELY on quality supplements that have been properly processed to eliminate any toxic elements (namely, a compound called esculin)… and whose safety has been tested by a third party.

Look for a vessel support or leg health formula containing European horse chestnut with a 50-150 mg standardized dosage of escin.

Typical daily doses of 400-600 mg of horse chestnut extract can be safely taken for up to 8 weeks.

You can also apply a horse chestnut-based topical cream combined with butcher’s broom directly on varicose veins or even hemorrhoids.

Horse chestnut can interfere with certain prescription meds and can worsen chronic conditions – so as always, check with your doc before starting any new supplement routine.
