"Since I started taking this supplement I notice my legs (calves) don't feel tight anymore. I like the time-release delivery of the tablets. I use it daily. Very good product." ~product review by ER44

  • A terrific vascular tonic

  • Excellent herb for promoting vascular tone, especially in the legs and extremities

  • 200 mg of horse chestnut standardized to 22% aescin

Put the pep back in your step with the herbal vascular support of Swanson Horse Chestnut! The legs and lower extremities are often indicators of circulatory health. That's where horse chestnut comes in. It features a unique natural compound known as aescin, which helps maintain blood vessel integrity to promote healthy circulation to the legs and feet and throughout the body. Our Horse Chestnut delivers a powerful standardized extract (22% aescin content) in special timed-release tablets that allow maximum potency with no stomach upset.

Best for legs! Wonderful instead of support hose-- February 2, 2014
had to return they did help, but could not tollerate side effects. July 8, 2013
Economical time-release version The price is great on this formulation. I don't mind that the round tablets (about the size of an adult aspirin) are on the gritty side. They are brown with a rough surface so they don't go down quite as easily as the other Horse Chestnut Swanson carries, which is in white capsules. But for me it's fine -- I'd rather save the money in the long run. June 16, 2013
Upsets my stomach These tablets appear very coarsely made, with large, visible chunks and flecks of vegetable matter in a concretion of "timed release." I'm skeptical about how gradually it actually releases. They seem a bit crumbly. They're definitely a bit sticky to the touch, with a moderately bad smell. More to the point, they make me nauseated almost every time I try and take one. I haven't had that issue with any other supplement. I don't get violently sick or anything, just queasy for several hours. June 10, 2013
Worthwhile I took leg vein essentials for many years but it did not work as well as I wanted. Then I tried the tablet form of horse chestnut along with butcher's broom extract. The tablet form of horse chestnut was bitter and the butcher's broom extract did not seem effective. Then I tried the time-released horse chestnut and it worked as fine for me. I take two capsules a day. June 9, 2013
Horse Chestnut Works for Me! Seems I am getting better circulation since taking these timed release tablets 3 times daily (one tablet every 8 hours). Need to drink at least 8 oz of water with each tablet. I am very happy with the Horse Chestnut Tablets. April 18, 2013
I really like the time released I work in retail and spend some days on my feet for hours. I think the time released aspect of this really helps my legs to feel less tired by the end of the day. I am not crazy about the flat round shape though it makes it a little difficult to swallow, I would prefer caplet shape more. April 7, 2013
Effective I like Swanson's Timed-Release Horse Chestnut pills so much, I reordered 4 bottles this time. My old product was a higher dose, once a day. These are more effective because you take a smaller dose, 2-3 times a day. My legs look and feel better. I'd definitely recommend them. The price is excellent too. September 19, 2012
Would recommend Since I started taking this supplement I notice my legs (calves) don't feel tight anymore. I like the time-release delivery of the tablets. I use it daily. Very good product. November 14, 2011
Horse chesnut Good product,use to improve circulation.Reasonably priced. January 3, 2011
I believe this is helping me~ I tried Swanson's Leg Vein Essentials formula first, and it seemd to give me problems with anxiety, grouchiness, and also trouble sleeping. Then I decided to try each ingredient in that formula, separately. Horse Chestnut is one of the ingredients in Leg Vein Essentials. I've been taking this twice a day for about 2 weeks now, and it hasn't given me any problems. It seems to be slowly helping my vascular health, too. November 11, 2010
great results "I have been very pleased with the results of using this product. I've found that Swanson's line, while not the cheapest out there, is by far the leader when it comes to quality and value." September 1, 2010
Helpful Product I take this product to contribute to my over-all health after reading that it could benefit the circulatory system. August 2, 2010
Very Impressed!!! I purchased this product with reservations about it's efficacy...I was just being hopeful...last straw kinda thing... I am so VERY VERY GLAD I purchased this product...IT WORKS!!! They are gone!!! My husband has even noticed the difference and is again telling me that I have beautiful legs. I'm not saying it will work for everybody...but this product worked for me. February 1, 2010
Great value and effectiveness. This is a great product. It worked for me when I had to sit all day and now that I don't. October 2, 2009
LegVeins I see no improvement whatsoever and would definately not recommend this product August 23, 2009
Great product Two previous items didn't help a bit but these magic tabs keep my legs feeling normal most of the time. Two tabs a day, sometimes three, and at 79, I've taken them for many years. I always order a supply early so I won't be without them. A big plus is - these tabs are also inexpensive! July 22, 2009
Really works! These absolutely do the trick for me... HUGE difference when I am on them vs. when I am off of them (ex. when I run out). Seems to take me about 2 weeks for the effects to build up in my system, and also about two weeks to loose the effects once I have run out. I have found my results to be directly proportional to the number of tables I take. April 1, 2009
stinky stinks, literally. smells like limburger January 28, 2009
work great!!!with a meal take one "Due to governmental regulations for dietary supplements...claims". this legal garbage has got to end. feedback must be legal, people have free speech rights!!! these work amazing!!! the best out of 20 brands!!! these are tough to digest so I break them up and chase'em with cranberrry juice, or eat with hot meal.
