Symptoms and relief

Ours is a holistic approach that does not hinder the physiological processes of the body. It's an approach that encourages the restoration of balance, by combatting the causes of symptoms as efficiently as possible and ensuring fast relief.



Venous system



Chronic venous insufficiency is a circulatory disorder that causes a slowing of the blood flow from the extremities to the heart, resulting in the "stagnation" of blood in the veins. The most affected areas are:

  • THE VEINS IN THE LOWER LIMBS, with the development of varices (permanent dilations of the vein wall, commonly called "varicose veins");
  • THE VEINS IN THE HEMORROID PLEXUS, with the development of hemorrhoids (due to increased venous pressures during defecation, especially in cases of constipation);
  • THE GENITAL VEINS, with the development of varicoceles ("scrotal" in men and "pelvic" in women).

This issue is widespread, especially among women. The current prevalence of varicose veins in the lower extremities is 10-50% in the adult male population and 50-55% in the female population. Varicose disease occurs in 10-33% of females and 10-20% of adult males.

Venous insufficiency manifests itself through LOWER LIMB SYMPTOMS, such as:

  • a feeling of tiredness and heaviness in the legs;
  • pain and discomfort in a standing, static and prolonged posture;
  • altered sensitivity (tingling, itching, a burning sensation and the sensation of warmth);
  • night pains and cramps (the so-called "restless leg syndrome");
  • skin dyschromia (pigmentations in the ankles and/or feet);
  • visible capillaries;
  • varicose veins;
  • swelling of the legs and ankles;
  • alterations of the skin and skin ulcers.

The causes may be "organic" or "functional," depending on whether the veins are impaired or overactive. In general, venous insufficiency is common in individuals who:

  • suffer from chronic constipation;
  • are overweight;
  • do not engage in adequate physical activity;
  • suffer from water retention;
  • maintain an incorrect posture;
  • suffer from hormonal imbalances (e.g., pregnancy, oral contraception, etc.);
  • are exposed to heat on a prolonged basis (e.g., heating, sun exposure, etc.);
  • have a family predisposition (congenital weakness of the veins);
  • have undergone a traumatic event (which caused an alteration of the muscle pump).

This dysfunction is often underestimated or connected to a mere cosmetic issue. In reality, venous insufficiency is a degenerative and evolving condition which, if not properly treated, exposes the patient to a number of complications, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
One particular element of concern is the level of homocysteine in the blood. If present at high concentrations, this amino acid can alter the functioning of vascular cells and favor the occurrence of thrombi, promoting the development of complications of chronic venous disease.
In severe cases, pharmacological and surgical interventions are required.

For the venous system


Horse chestnut seeds contain a mixture of saponins called "escin" which has vasoprotective, vasokinetic and antiedematous effect: it decreases small vessel permeability and improves venous tone, reducing edema and swelling.

GSE's action has been enhanced through an innovative technology resulting in GSEvolved®: GSE combined with hyperfermented GSE. Thanks to its extraordinary broad-spectrum microbial properties, GSE is indispensable in the treatment of hemorrhoids, especially in cases of bleeding, as a natural sanitizer, acting in full respect of the physiology of the anal area.
Using a patented production process, which combines molecular enzymatic bioliquefaction with fermentation, all parts of the seeds (even those low in sugars) are made fermentable. The patented process is called "hyperfermentation."
Bioliquefaction, through a combination of multiple enzymatic treatments, extracts 100% of the molecules that make up the plant's phytocomplex and turns it into an active, bioavailable form. This technology makes it possible to obtain phytocomplexes that are rich in active ingredients, extremely complete and bioavailable, and consequently highly effective.
Fermentation converts enzymatically hydrolyzed inert fiber into additional active ingredients (antioxidants, vitamins, proteins, amino acids) and converts it into saccharides.
The combination of these two methods releases the mono- and oligosaccharides in the seeds and enhances the plant phytocomplex by increasing:



Due to their antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant properties, cypress cones are used for internal use to treat inflammatory conditions, such as hemorrhoids. They are also recognized for their antibacterial effects against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and yeasts. An Cypress cone extract was developed specifically for our product, through an ultrasonic extraction process that allows the release of all the active ingredients contained in the plant without the use of heat or solvents.


Blackcurrant juice has demonstrated good antioxidant properties, mainly attributed to its Vitamin C and flavonoid (flavonols, anthocyanins and tannins) content. The phytocomplex has an anti-inflammatory effect and supports microcirculation, providing benefits for problems associated with venous insufficiency and hemorrhoids.


Marshmallow, a plant rich in mucilaginous polysaccharides, is traditionally used to treat irritated mucous membranes. Due to their ability to form a thin layer over the mucosa, Marshmallow polysaccharides can protect the tissue from chemical-physical and microbial stress. In addition, Marshmallow extract has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect.

A prized remedy for its antioxidant and cytoprotective action, it has been shown to protect the skin from oxidative stress. When used within an emulsion, it promotes collagen production and wound repair. Finally, it is effective in treating skin infections due to its potent antibacterial effect.


Epsom salts (Magnesium Sulfate or Bitter Salt) are colorless crystals originating in the British town of Epsom, from which they take their name. They are traditionally used to treat various skin conditions and to make sitz baths for anorectal conditions. Their efficacy is mainly due to the presence of magnesium ions, which can permeate the skin, increasing its hydration, reducing muscle tension, and having an analgesic effect. Sulfur also has a beneficial anti-inflammatory, keratoplastic and anti-itching effect. Sulfur water is also associated with antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Epsom Salt increases water density, allowing the submerged areas to float and be less affected by the force of gravity, thus promoting lymphatic and venous circulation. Sitz baths performed with warm water facilitate the reduction of rectal and anal sphincter pressure.

Taking care of venous system health means acting on several fronts, and diet is one of the pillars that can restore lightness to the legs and relief in cases of hemorrhoids before the more serious clinical complaints of venous insufficiency set in. This, together with adequate physical activity and the appropriate use of supplements. The first step is to reduce salt from the diet because excess salt stiffens the walls of the venous system and carries water outside the cells, causing water retention, a typical symptom accompanying venous insufficiency. Along with the limited but conscious consumption of salt, it is essential to hydrate adequately and to adopt a varied, balanced diet rich in foods that are a source of valuable vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, useful in aiding the function of the cardiovascular system as well as preventing venous insufficiency.


  1. Reduce sodium intake and sodium-rich foods. The most sodium-rich food is table salt, followed by all cured meats, salted foods such as salted meat and fish, soy sauce, capers, sun-dried tomatoes, cheese, pickled olives, salted popcorn, saltine crackers, etc.
    PRACTICAL ADVICE: To limit salt consumption, use a teaspoon to measure it. We recommend getting used to seasoning dishes with the teaspoon and putting in a pinch of salt less every week; this strategy will train the palate to feel less of a need for it. IMPORTANT: use unrefined salt.
  2. Increase your consumption of plant foods that contain flavonoids, antioxidant elements with known beneficial effects on the vein walls. Favor citrus fruits, apples, cherries, grapes, strawberries, cabbage, broccoli, onions, etc. For those with a sweet tooth for chocolate, there is good news: dark chocolate, at above 75 percent cocoa, provides considerable amounts of flavonoids. It is important not to abuse it and to choose quality dark chocolate with no added sugars.
  3. Get into the habit of drinking orange juice with lemons. The vitamin C and citric acid in these foods strengthen tissues, hindering skin damage. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, tomatoes, kiwi, parsley, kale, and salad are also foods that are rich in vitamin C.
  4. If hemorrhoids are present, avoid fermented cheeses such as gorgonzola, spicy foods, cold cuts and sausages, fried foods, pickles, spices, coffee, alcoholic beverages (wine, beer). If the problem is frequent or prolonged, it is a good idea to consult your doctor to rule out any other issues

  • WHOLE GRAIN CEREALS, PSEUDOCEREALS, FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. Chronic constipation, which hinders the return of venous blood towards the upper body, can be identified as a contributing factor in venous insufficiency. The daily, conscious consumption of plant fiber allows for the blood to flow more easily, thus preventing blood reflux in the lower limbs while improving bowel function. Fiber is divided into soluble fiber and insoluble fiber: soluble fiber, contained in apples, oranges, and vegetables in general, absorbs and retains water, promoting the hydration of the fecal mass and intestinal peristalsis; insoluble fiber, contained mainly in the bran of whole grains and legumes, acts by producing a mechanical entrainment effect. Additional foods that regularize the bowel, making bowel movements easier due to their richness in mucilage, include: flaxseed, psyllium seeds, oats and barley. These are also particularly useful additions for those who are prone to hemorrhoids.
  • EGGS, CARROTS, DARK GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES. Vitamin A (retinol - found in eggs) and the carotenoids abundant in plants are powerful antioxidants that can protect cells in the venous system from attack by free radicals that induce oxidative stress, one of the causes of inflammation and the stiffening of cell membranes.

  • LEGUMES, MEAT (PREFERABLY WHITE MEAT), FISH, EGGS. The B vitamins in these foods help to prevent vascular damage caused by homocysteine. Homocysteine is a cytotoxin which, at high concentrations, can alter the functioning of vascular cells and promote the development of thrombi. Increased homocysteine levels can be caused by a deficiency of vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and vitamin B9 (folic acid). To degrade this cytotoxin into harmless substances, the body requires B-group vitamins, which are specifically recommended in cases of increased homocysteine values and chronic venous insufficiency.
  • consuming foods of organic and/or 0-km origin
  • following a varied diet, favoring the consumption of fruits and vegetables, preferably in season, easily digestible proteins (fresh small fish, white meat, eggs), legumes, pumpkin seeds, sunflower, flax, chia, etc., walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, etc.
  • consuming cereals, preferably whole grain but not only, because in some cases fiber prevents the absorption of minerals and other nutrients, semi-wholegrain cereals and pseudocereals (quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth)
  • preferring foods that are sources of omega-3 fatty acids, such as flax oil, hemp oil, oily fish (mackerel, sardines, sardines etc.), chia seeds, flax seeds, etc.
  • staying adequately hydrated. Water requirements vary from individual to individual and change according to different lifestyles, the type of activity and the diet. An adult should generally drink 2 liters of water per day for maintaining their health. Water is an essential element for the body because it regulates various biological functions. Therefore, it is important to maintain proper hydration, especially during the summer season, during sports activities and in all situations where a lot of fluids are lost.
  • avoiding abuse of gluten-containing foods, packaged foods and fried foods
  • limiting sugar, sugary drinks, refined grains (white bread, white pasta, white rice, etc.)
    avoiding hydrogenated fats, limiting red meat, milk and its derivatives, and salt. When consuming them, prefer those of high quality
