What is Horse Chestnut:
Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is a tree. Horse chestnut contains significant amounts of a poison called esculin and can cause death if eaten raw.
Horse chestnut also contains a substance that thins the blood. It makes it harder for fluid to leak out of veins and capillaries, which can help prevent water retention (edema). The horse chestnut fruits contain seeds that look like the sweet chestnut but have a bitter taste.
People most commonly take horse chestnut seed extracts by mouth to treat poor circulation that can cause the legs to swell (chronic venous insufficiency or CVI). It's also used for many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these other uses.
Be careful not to confuse Aesculus hippocastanum (Horse chestnut) with Aesculus californica (California buckeye) or Aesculus glabra (Ohio buckeye). Some people call any of these plants horse chestnut, but they are different plants with different effects.
7 Health Benefits of Horse Chestnut Extract
1. Relieve symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a health condition characterized by poor blood flow to the veins of the legs.
Symptoms can include (1Trusted Source):
edema, or swelling of the legs
leg pain or cramps
varicose veins, or enlarged, twisted veins that typically occur in the legs
weakness in the legs
A common treatment is compression therapy or stockings, which can increase blood flow to your legs.
The compound aescin in horse chestnut has multiple medicinal properties that could make it useful for treating CVI. For example, it may increase blood flow in your veins, possibly improving symptoms. In a review of 19 studies, 9 studies found that daily doses of 600 mg of horse chestnut extract containing 50 mg of aescin taken for up to 8 weeks reduced symptoms of CVI, including leg pain, swelling, and itchy legs.
In fact, one study noted that horse chestnut extract was as effective as compression therapy at reducing swelling and leg volume.These studies show that horse chestnut extract may be effective for treating CVI short term, but more research is needed to determine its long-term effects.
2. Treat varicose veins
Varicose veins are swollen, bulging veins that typically occur in the legs and can be caused by CVI.
Horse chestnut seed extract may improve venous tone by improving blood flow in your legs.
Additionally, it may help decrease leg swelling and pain associated with varicose veins.
In an 8-week study, 58% of participants who took horse chestnut seed extract tablets containing 20 mg of aescin 3 times daily and applied 2% aescin gel topically twice daily had reduced varicose vein symptoms like leg pain, swelling, heaviness, and discoloration.
3. Has potent anti-inflammatory properties
Inflammation can cause excess fluid buildup in your tissues, which can lead to fluid retention and swelling.
Aescin is a component in horse chestnut extract with anti-inflammatory properties. It has been found to reduce inflammation related to injury, venous insufficiency, and swelling. A review of 17 studies observed that horse chestnut seed extract could help reduce inflammation and swelling in the legs and feet related to CVI. In addition, studies showed that applying a topical ointment containing aescin could reduce inflammation and swelling after trauma, surgery, and sports injuries. However, this ointment also contained other anti-inflammatory compounds, making it unclear whether aescin alone would have the same effects.
4. May relieve hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are a common health condition characterized by swollen veins around your anus and rectum.
Symptoms are uncomfortable and can include itching, irritation, pain, and rectal bleeding. The anti-inflammatory properties of horse chestnut seed extract may help relieve symptoms of hemorrhoids by reducing inflammation and swelling in the affected veins. Still, research in this area is limited and more studies are needed to confirm the potential benefits of horse chestnut extract for treating hemorrhoids.
5. Has antioxidant properties
Horse chestnut seed extract contains powerful antioxidants — compounds that can help prevent cell damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals. Too many free radicals can lead to inflammation and cellular damage. Horse chestnut seed extract is rich in flavonoid compounds, including quercetin and kaempferol, which have potent antioxidant properties. A test-tube study found that both aescin and horse chestnut seed extract have antioxidant properties, but that the horse chestnut seed extract had greater effects than aescin alone. This may be due to the synergistic effects of the components in the extract.
6. Contains cancer-fighting compounds
Aside from its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, test-tube studies also indicate that aescin has anticancer effects.These studies found that aescin could significantly reduce tumor cell growth in certain cancers like liver cancer, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. In addition, test-tube studies observed that aescin can cause cell death in cancerous cells like pancreatic cancer and lung cancer.
However, these studies used concentrated amounts of aescin, and it’s unclear whether the amount found in horse chestnut seed extract would have the same effects. More human studies in this area are needed before firm conclusions can be made.
7. Help with male infertility
One of the causes of male infertility is varicocele, or swelling of the veins near the testicles. The anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling properties in aescin — a compound in horse chestnut — may make it an effective treatment for infertility related to varicocele. A 2-month study in over 100 men with varicocele-associated infertility found that taking 30 mg of aescin every 12 hours improved sperm density, sperm motility, and sperm quality. In addition, the varicocele size decreased with the intake of aescin.
Functions of Aescin:
1.Anti-tissue edema , reduce vascular permeability and prevent water accumulation in tissues.
2. Treatment of stomach cold and pain, etc.
3. Treatment of brain dysfunction caused by traumatic swelling, brain contusion, concussion, cerebrovascular accident or cerebral edema during encephalitis. It has obvious protective effect on brain edema caused by carbon monoxide.
4. Aescin can also be used for the treatment of spinal pain, varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, leg ulcers, anal soft tissue swelling, burns and scald edema.
