Horse Chestnut seed extract has been extensively studied for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), a circulation problem in which the veins do not efficiently return blood from the legs to the heart. This condition is associated with varicose veins, pain, ankle swelling, itching, and nighttime leg cramping. A review of all the clinical trials concluded that the evidence suggests that horse chestnut seed extract is an efficacious and safe short-term treatment for CVI. It can be as effective as compression stockings.
