Like so many other parts of our bodies, we only become aware of our veins when they stop working properly. Whether we like it or not we are often judged by the appearance of our legs â€“ and this is more so for women than men.
For most, varicose veinsare a problem because of the way they look. They can be embarrassing, causing people to avoid baring their legs, revealing their varicose veins for all to see.
However, as well as being unsightly, varicose veins can cause unpleasant symptoms such as tired, heavy legs which can affect our daily routine. Some people may also experience uncomfortable leg cramps or swollen ankles.
A traditional herbal treatment for varicose veins popular in Europe is to use the extract of Horse Chestnut seed.
Venaforce is a licensed herbal remedy used to treat symptoms of varicose veins such as tired, heavy, aching legs, leg cramps and swollen ankles. It contains the extract of fresh Horse Chestnut seeds - known to many of us as the Conker.
