Sedentary lifestyles and poor eating habits can adversely affect the health and vitality of the heart and circulatory system. Solgar Bilberry Horse Chestnut Complex combines the synergy of traditional botanicals with plant extracts to encourage systemic health, of benefit to both mind and body.
Bromelain - Derived from pineapple, this potent anti-inflammatory fibrinolytic agent is well known for its protective and strengthening effects on blood vessels.
Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) - A rich source of flavonoids (anthocyanins), bilberries help optimise the integrity of the vascular system primarily through stabilising vascular collagen, aiding vasodilation, inhibiting excessive platelet aggregation and inhibiting free radical damage.
Rutin - This plant-derived flavonoid exerts protective effects on the circulatory system by strengthening capillaries, reducing capillary permeability and inflammation and providing antioxidant effects.
Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) - A rich source of the flavonoid aescin, horse chestnut has historically been shown to support and strengthen lower limb circulation through tonifying effects and reducing capillary fragility. Flavonoids and tannins found in horse chestnut are generally recognised as having anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.
Grape Seed Extract - Grape seed extract is rich in oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs); potent flavonoids known to exert antioxidant, collagen stabilising, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) - Historical use of yarrow reveals circulatory benefits due to its effects on dilating and tonifying peripheral blood vessels. Research reveals that part of the vaso-protective mechanisms offered by yarrow is due to its effects on modulating the inflammatory signalling molecule NF-kB.
Lime Blossom (Tilea spp.) - Lime blossom, as a Ã¢â?¬Ë?nervineÃ¢â?¬â?¢ botanical, helps limit the negative effects of anxiety and tension and is stated to possess sedative, diuretic and antispasmodic actions mainly due to the presence of volatile oils.
Also contains hawthorn berry, cayenne and gotu kola: botanicals renowned for their circulatory benefits.
