Horse Chestnut General Information
The bright white, yellow and red flower clusters of the Horse Chestnut tree are widely cultivated for their beauty. The spiny fruits of this tree contain a few large seeds known as Horse Chestnuts. In many parts of Europe, some believe carrying the seeds in your pocket will ward off rheumatism.

Horse Chestnut Uses & Scientific Evidence For
German research of this herb has led to the approval of a Horse Chestnut extract for treating leg vein diseases. In Germany, Horse Chestnut is one of the most widely sold herb products, third only to Gingko and St. Johnís Wort. In Japan, an injectable form of Horse Chestnut is used to reduce inflammation after surgery or injury; however, this form is not available in the United States. Even though Horse Chestnut is used to treat varicose veins, it has not been shown to reduce the visibility of varicose veins. In conjunction with conventional medicine, this herb has been used to treat phlebitis as well; however, due to the severity of this disease, a doctorís supervision is required. It is also used to reduce the swelling and discomfort of hemorrhoids.

Horse Chestnut Dosage Information
A standard dosage of Horse Chestnut is 300 mg twice daily, standardized to contain 50 mg escin per dose, for a total daily dose of 100 mg escin. Escin is an active ingredient in Horse Chestnut believed to reduce swelling and inflammation. Look for certification that the toxic constituent called esculin has been removed from the Horse Chestnut preparation before using. Also, to prevent stomach upset, a delayed-release formulation must be taken.

Horse Chestnut Safety & Interaction Information
The whole Horse Chestnut herb is classified as unsafe by the FDA. Consuming the nuts or drinking a tea made from the leaves can cause Horse Chestnut poisoning; however, that threat is virtually removed when manufacturers eliminate the toxic constituent, esculin and standardize the quantity of escin. Injectable doses of this herb can be toxic to the liver. Do not take Horse Chestnut if you are on anticoagulant or blood-thinning drugs as it may exaggerate their effect. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing mothers, or those with severe liver or kidney damage is not known.
