What’s the Horse Chestnut Fruit?
Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is easy to be confused with Chinese Buckeye Seed. The seed of Aesculus hippocastanum contains triterpenoid saponins and flavonoids, such as aescuflavoside and aescuflavoside A, which are glycosides of quercetin.
The seed extract is a mixture of saponins, standardized to around 20 percent aescin (escin) is used for its venotonic effect, vascular protection, anti-inflammatory and free radical scavenging properties.
Aescin is the main active compound in horse chestnut, and is responsible for most of its medicinal properties

What’s the difference between Horse Chestnut & Chinese Buckeye Seed?
Buckeye and horse chestnut trees belong to the soapberry family, named Sapindaceae, genus Aesculus. They are not at all related to true chestnut trees, which are part of the beech family, despite the horse chestnut name and some physical similarities. Most buckeye species reside within the eastern United States, with one western representation, the California buckeye. Their rounded tops, canopy spreads that match their height up to 50 feet and early spring flowering make them appealing for landscaping and shade.
Horse chestnut trees belong to the same tree family as buckeyes. However, horse chestnuts originated in Europe, specifically the Balkan region. Horse chestnut trees may also be found in the United Kingdom. Horse chestnuts grow 50 to 75 feet in height, with an oval crown and a canopy spread of 40 to 70 feet when mature.
Extracts made from the leaves and fruits of the horse chestnut are used as herbal remedies, after the extraction of a poisonous compound called esculin. The extract has been used for chronic venous insufficiency; however, humans must not eat horse chestnuts, as they are poisonous.

Horse chestnut seed extract is widely used in Europe for chronic venous insufficiency, a syndrome that may include leg swelling, varicose veins, leg pain, itching, and skin ulcers. A compound known as aescin is found in horse chestnut extract, which appears to 'patch up' tiny leaks in blood vessels and capillaries, improving their health, strength, and elasticity.
Horse chestnut is an astringent, antiinflammatory herb that helps to tone the vein walls which, when slack or distended, may become varicose,haemorrhoidal or otherwise problematic. The plant also reduces fluid retentionby increasing the permeability of the capillaries and allowing the reabsorption of excess fluid back into the circulatory system.
