A.Vogel's Venagel Horse Chestnut Gel has been formulated for the relief of tired aching legs. Venagel Horse Chestnut Gel, formerly Aesculus Gel, is an easily absorbed gel for quick action and contains horse chestnut extract which helps with lower limb circulation and general leg pains.
The Horse chestnut seeds used in Venagel are picked at their prime and used within 24 hours of harvesting to make this soothing gel.
Venagel contains the extract of fresh Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) seeds. Horse chestnut extracts are commonly associated with the treatment of varicose veins, such as with A.Vogel's Venaforce® Horse chestnut tablets.
However, Horse chestnut extracts in gels are soothing, providing cooling relief to legs that feel weary, heavy and uncomfortable – fantastic after a night out or a day’s shopping. It is also useful for long journeys (especially by plane), during hot weather and can be used during pregnancy.
The use of a gel base is far superior than creams in allowing the active ingredients to penetrate the tissues and hence positive benefits are experienced very quickly.
