Pressbox (Press Release) - Ephytem’s Blend of Herbs Suitable for Circulatory Care is a powerful synergistic blend of three herbs designed to strengthen the circulatory system, tone the venal system and act as a powerful anti-clotting agent which may be of benefit to those at risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) on long haul air flights.

Horse Chestnut, which is included in the blend, is prescribed in Germany by some doctors to treat varicose veins and Swiss research has shown that it is an effective treatment for water retention in the legs and ankles -- a tell-tale symptoms of potential circulatory problems.

One of the most interesting ingredients included in the blend is Melilot. Melilot contains coumarins, which are the chemicals responsible for the smell of new mown hay and it was from coumarin that the modern anti-coagulant, Warfarin, was developed. One of its most important effects, according to herbalist Stuart Fitzsimmons, is to reduce the potential for blood clot formation in veins. which is particularly important for varicose vein sufferers who are sedentary or who travel frequently by air. Melilot has also been shown to relieve symptoms associated with varicose veins particularly that of fluid leaking into the connective tissues around the ankle. The fluid tends to accumulate protein and 'solidify' Melilot helps to soften the fluid and aid its removal via the lymphatic system. It also helps to stimulate the immune cells in the connective tissue, called macrophages, clean out any cellular debris and inflammatory end products

Other ingredients included in the Blend are Red Vine which is also used by herbalists to treat not only varicose veins but piles as well and is thought to work by reducing permeability and fragility of the capillaries.
