Horse Chestnut
The herb horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is perhaps the most widely utilized treatment for varicose veins. The way that it works is through the active constituent compound called aescin, which appears to block the release of enzymes that damage capillary walls. Research has shown the effectiveness of Horse Chestnut in treating varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (a condition in which the veins do not efficiently return blood from the legs to the heart). You can find many different dietary supplements containing this potent herb–including one by the well-regarded supplement company Solaray. www.nutraceutical.com

NaturalCare Vein-Guard Cream

The combination of homeopathics, aloe and vitamins helps improve bulging, bluish, lumpy-looking varicose and “spider” veins while relieving tired, aching legs and feet. Continued application of Vein-Gard Cream for 3-6 months offers best results.

Bilberry
Bilberry is a relative of the blueberry, and has been used for nearly 1,000 years in traditional European medicine. Bilberry grows in North America, Europe, and northern and contains anthocyanosides which are potent antioxidants which help to strengthen blood vessels and capillary walls.  Not only is Bilberry used for varicose veins and venous insufficiency, but it’s also used as a folk or traditional remedy for diarrhea, menstrual cramps, eye problems and other circulatory problems. www.bluebonnetnutrition.com
