Aescin is a substance extracted from horse chestnut bark and seeds, and contains numerous virtues that are beneficial for our health.
Although its name isn’t very well known, aescin is a highly-used substance in phytotherapy and cosmetics thanks to its healthy properties. It is particularly useful for the cardiocirculatory system and has strong therapeutic benefits against cellulite and haemorrhoids. Let’s discover all the properties of this miraculous substance.
The properties of aescin.
Its anti inflammatory action, derived from the presence of elucoside, combined with its vasoprotective and vasoconstrictive properties, make aescin a wonderful natural remedy for circulatory problems. For example, it is widely used for treating lymph stasis and fragile capillaries.
In addition, it is used to fight haemorrhoids, but also varicose veins and postphlebitic syndrome. For external use, aescin is beneficial against hematoma, contusions and ecchymosis, for oedema and varicose veins. Finally, in cases of chronic venous insufficiency, it can reduce haematic stasis and helps blood return to the heart.
Perfect legs: Aescin against cellulite
Aescin is contained in many anti-cellulite remedies, such as cream for legs. Its anti oxidising action from the quercetin and other substances that fight free radicals combine to create a fat-burning action that helps to melt away fat, helping eliminate liquids and water retention.
In addition, it reactivates circulation and improves capillary resistance, which is very important for those who have to resolve problems with cellulite. This product also produces other important actions: it alleviates swelling and tiredness in the legs and supports venous contractility.
Side effects of aescin
This substance should not be used by those who suffer from problems like kidney failure or nephropathy. In fact, it has been proven that long-term use can cause damage to the glomerulus (a thick network of capillaries in the kidneys) and kidney tubules.
You must pay attention to any allergic reactions on first use. It can also cause skin problems like itching, skin rashes, dermatitis and erythema. In some cases, there can be mild digestive problems (nausea, vomiting and diarrhea) and vertigo.
