Horse Chestnut Aesculus hippocastanum Historically used to improve the circulatory system. It strengthens capillary walls and dilates blood vessels, which helps to relieve varicose veins, phlebitis, swollen ankles and local edema. The herb is said to reduce blood clots and hardening of the arteries, and may thus help to prevent strokes and heart attacks. Horse Chestnut also helps to loosen and expel lung congestion, which alleviates bronchitis, respiratory catarrh and coughs.
