– The red vine makes it possible to obtain effective results in case of heavy or tired legs. In gel, the effect of the feeling of freshness combined with the effect of the Red Vine leaves the treatment particularly pleasant and effective. In capsules, the use for other indications ( hemorrhoids ,…) can also be strongly recommended, as well as in infusion or even in foot baths. Ask your pharmacy, drugstore or herbalist for advice.
The journalists of a special edition of the French magazine Science & Viedated July 2020 dedicated to medicinal plants estimate, talking about the red vine, that its effectiveness against venous insufficiency has been scientifically proven. The EMA (European Medicines Agency) recognizes red vine as a “well-established” medicinal use. Another medicinal plant indicated for venous insufficiency, with studies proving its effectiveness, is the horse chestnut.
