Vein Support with Phytonutrients New Product Introduction
by VRP Staff

Vericose veins are a common indication of impaired circulatory function known as venous insufficiency.  Normally, circulating blood flows upwards from the legs and feet to return to the heart.  This gravity-defying feat is accomplished by the combination of muscle contractions that force blood upward through the veins, and a system of one-way valves that prevent blood from falling backwards in between contractions.  Venous insufficiency occurs when this function is impaired, either when valves become damaged or when calf muscles can no longer force the blood flow properly.  Chronic venous insufficiency can also be due to blood clots (phlebitis).  Other symptoms of venous insufficiency include swelling of the legs and ankles (edema), leg aches/ulcerations, and hemorrhoids.

Phytonutrients Shown to Enhance Venous Circulation
A review of natural treatment options for vericose veins and hemorrhoids shows a number of phytonutrients and antioxidants may be highly effective for relieving symptoms of venous insufficiency and supporting circulatory health.

Gotu Kola
A common indication of circulatory problems is edema, caused by the accumulation of excess fluid in tissues.  Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica or Diosmin), has been shown to be supportive for reducing edema in numerous studies.  A review of options for hemorrhoids and varicose veins also shows that Gotu Kola may benefit these conditions by improving the microcirculation and by strengthening the connective tissue.27  Gotu Kola aids in repairing the microcirculation, enhancing collagen growth where needed, and preventing oxidative damage.

In addition, Gotu Kola may reduce the risk of cerebrovascular injury from carotid and femoral plaques by stabilizing the plaques to prevent further damage.  These plaques are not part of the microcirculation.  Thus, Gotu Kola may benefit the health of the entire circulatory system.

Butchers Broom
Butchers Broom is a member of the lily family that was used by the early Greeks.  Modern herbalists commonly use Butchers broom to support circulation and anti-inflammation for a wide range of vascular problems.  It helps in various areas from increasing circulation to the limbs to reducing the incidence of post-surgical thrombosis or blood clotting.  Due to its mild diuretic action it may also reduce swelling of the legs and help alleviate vericose veins and phlebitis.

Researchers have confirmed that extracts of butchers broom contain several steroidal saponin compounds that work as vasoconstrictors by activating alpha-adrenergic receptors.  The main glycosides in butchers broom are called ruscogenins which are known to possess properties that may lower inflammation in addition to being vasoconstricive agents.  These active ingredients may be instrumental in reducing the fragility and permeability of capillaries.  Human clinical trials have supported the extracts effectiveness in dealing with vascular disorders as well as its anti-inflammatory support.

Horse Chestnut
Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) has demonstrated an impressive ability to assist in reducing edema and relieving the swelling and symptoms associated with chronic venous insufficiency.  Physicians in Europe and Asia have used horse chestnut for helping with these two conditions as well as vericose veins, phlebitis (inflammation of a vein), and other venous circulatory disorders, particularly of the legs.

In human trials, horse chestnut has significantly supported the reduction of leg edema often present in chronic venous insufficiency.  In one study of 40 patients suffering from venous edema, the researchers measured leg volume before and after they provoked edema.  In subjects treated with horse chestnut seed extract, the leg volume was considerably less than those who had not received the herb.  Therefore, the treated patients may have experienced improved movement and enhanced ability to sit or stand due to the administration of  horse chestnut.

Antioxidant Support
In addition to the phytonutrients, a number of antioxidants have also been shown to confer benefits on circulatory functions, primarily by supporting collagen formation and enhancing healing of damaged tissues.

Vitamin C is well established for its role in maintaining collagen, the basic cellular cement that keeps blood vessels healthy.  And, bioflavonoids ...  especially rutin and hesparidin, have been shown to support venous strength and integrity.

Chronic venous insufficiency is a prolonged condition of impaired venous circulation, caused by partial vein blockage or venous valve leakage.  The above-mentioned phytonutrients have been shown safe and effective for supporting the circulatory system and preventing the vascular and tissue damage often seen in chronic cases.
