Varicose Veins Overview:
Supplements that improve the visual symptoms of varicose veins and the potential health complications with chronic venous insufficiency (the main medical reasons one would have varicose veins).It is possible that the supplements in this list can be orally ingested or topically applied, and this difference will be made note of under each supplement section.
The dosing of horse chestnut is based off of its aescin content, which should reach 100-150mg daily. It is best taken in multiple doses, usually two doses separated by twelve hours.
Horse Chestnut is able to dilate the veins and improve circulation as it pertains to veins, and does have human evidence to support its efficacy.
While the evidence to support pycnogenol is less than that of horse chestnut, the one comparative study suggested that it was more potent and pycnogenol is known to have once daily dosing.
The above doses are the higher range of normal, but still in the effective and safe range.
