RUSCUS with 10% RUSCONGENINS: Holly (Ruscus) is known for the activity of RUSCOGENINES, molecules with vasotonic, antiedematous and anti-inflammatory action. It is indicated for venous insufficiency, varicose veins, swelling, but also in the hemorrhoids treatment because it favors venules narrowing, without interfering with arteries functionality. At renal level it has diuretic action. It gives relief because it reduces the sense of heaviness from legs and the itching in case of hemorrhoids. It stimulates diuresis and menstrual cycle.
HORSE CHESTNUT : This plant is a valid aid for the treatment of all those disorders characterized by venous insufficiency and the symptoms associated with it, such as swelling, heaviness, pain and itching. This happens thanks to ESCINE, able to perform numerous actions at the level of blood vessels, including the increase in venous tone, with consequent improvement in venous return; increased capillary resistance; the removal of accumulated interstitial fluids (anti-edema action). Furthermore, a study conducted on 80 hemorrhoid patients showed that taking the horse-chestnut seed extract three times a day for a period of two months is able to reduce bleeding and swelling caused by this disorder.
RED VINE: The active ingredients contained in the leaves collected in autumn, when they take on reddish hues, from which the term "red vine" originates, belong to the category of POLYPHENOLS, in particular bioflavonoids, and play an intense antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Their most important action is that of tonic and vasoprotective, of care of the circulatory system, where they positively influence the vascular permeability, preventing edema and swelling. Also the seeds and the skin of the berries containing a phytocomplex rich in flavonoids, anthocyanins, polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin P, and perform a very useful action in venous-lymphatic insufficiency, in cardiovascular pathologies and for those disorders that involve circulatory eye problems , especially at the retina level. The red vine is therefore indicated in all forms of varicose veins, phlebitis, capillary fragility, couperose, edema, hemorrhoids, cellulite, water retention, blood stasis and heaviness in the lower limbs.
RUTINE: It is a BIOFLAVONOID which is attributed different properties, the most important is its ability to promote the physiological permeability of blood capillaries, counteracting the formation of edema. Rutin would also seem to be able to stimulate the trophism and elasticity of capillaries, improving circulation and preventing bleeding. Several studies have also highlighted the antioxidant properties of this substance, which can protect body's cells from the harmful effects of free radicals; moreover, rutin would have the ability to prevent the formation of blood clots, thanks to its anti-aggregating platelet and antithrombotic properties, and is therefore used in various cases to promote cardiovascular health.
ROSE-HIP: It mainly contains VIT. C and BIOFLAVONOIDS, which helps the body in the absorb the vitamin C itself. Vitamin C is the highest form of ANTIOXIDANT: it helps in the assimilation of iron, stimulates the immune response and is anti-carcinogenic. It stimulates the synthesis of collagen, fundamental for the health of the connective tissue and for the tonicity of the skin, delaying the appearance of wrinkles and attenuating those already visible. L'azione vitaminizzante si lega a quella antiossidante dei bioflavonoidi, contenuti nelle polpa e nella buccia, che agiscono sinergicamente alla Vitamina C, ottimizzando la circolazione sanguigna.
