HerbalgemSweet Chestnut bud extract - organic
Food tree above all, with multiple uses, the chestnut is used not only for its buds but also, and chiefly, for its seeds, often confused with horse-chestnuts.
Other parts of the tree are used, such as the leaves (fodder, baths, expectorants), kittens (anti-diarrheal), bark (astringent), honey (cough, lungs), wood (parquet floor, framework, barrel, furniture, stakes, various utensils), flower (floral elixir of Dr. Bach), the fruit shell (paint).
The gemmotherapy uses the chestnut bud principally at the level of the circulatory system, as well venous as lymphatic.
Great drainer of the venous system, the bud of chestnut is indicated in congestive phenomena, such as varixes and circulatory stases in general. It is a remedy of varicose ulcers, which it reabsorbs while eliminating the periulcerous erythema. The chestnut fights against auto-intoxication of the body and spasmodic phenomena.
Thanks to its action on the lymphatic system, the chestnut acts in-depth on oedemas (which do not always depend on the kidney!), cellulitis, the feeling of heaviness.
