I was suffering from aching, throbbing legs (from varicose veins) even when I got up in the morning, and pain relievers did not even help. After some research, I came across Horse Chestnut. My ND recommended almost 6 of these a day, but starting off with the manufacturer dosage of 2 a day cured my leg pain within a day. Make sure to take one twice a day, since I took 2 at the same time, and it upset my stomach. So glad I found this product- probably saved me from expensive vein procedures.

Have been looking unsuccessfully for affordable Horse Chestnut tablets everywhere and finally found the NOW capsules. They really work; my legs are not swollen in spite of varicose and spider veins and, as I am walking and standing on my feet most of the day, feel good that this helps my legs.

I stand and walk alot at my job. I wear steel toed shoes and the ground is concert. My legs get tired after a long day or days of this. I was looking for a product to help with my circulation in my legs. This product makes the blood in my leg veins hum. It is the weirdest thing to feel them hum. I had only been taking one pill a day for about 2 weeks now I just take one a week.
