Vitaking Horse Chestnut is a complex containing cranberry extract, diosmin, vitamin C, horse chestnut extract and hesperidin. Horse chestnuts help reduce the feeling of “heavy feet”. Horse chestnut extracts help maintain proper circulation and help support healthy veins and capillaries.
The basic premise of naturopathy is that if there are several active ingredients or herbs for a problem, using them in combination will achieve better results than using only one in any large amount.
Complex Ingredients of Vitaking Horse Chestnut
The fruit and leaves of blueberries have long been used in folk medicine. Blueberries help reduce the feeling of “heavy feet”. The anthocyanins (a colorant found in plants) in blueberries can help maintain capillary vascular health and vascular flexibility and counteract the harmful effects of free radicals.
Diosmin is a flavonoid derivative. Flavonoid compounds – or as they are sometimes called bioflavonoids – are behind the characteristic taste and aroma of vegetables and fruits. Because of them, the taste and smell of spinach differs from that of orange, because of them the peppers are red and the blueberries are blue. Diosmin is obtained from the peel of citrus fruits.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has a myriad of functions in our body and is always needed regardless of age, gender, and season, plus it is a water-soluble vitamin, so regular supplementation is important. Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen and through this to the maintenance of the normal condition and function of blood vessels.

Horse chestnuts have long been used in traditional folk medicine to maintain good blood circulation and reduce the feeling of “heavy legs”.
Hesperidin is also a flavonoid found in almost all citrus fruits. The group of compounds called flavonoids was discovered in 1930 by our Nobel Prize-winning scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi. It has been used in folk medicine for a long time.
Routine, also a plant compound, is a flavonoid found in the fruits of various citrus fruits, buckwheat, and the leaves of some rhubarb species, among others.
