Latin name: Aesculus, Hippocastanae Sem.

Characteristics

Horse chestnut seeds contain the triterpene saponine mixture Aecin, which acts sealingly on the vein walls so that pathological permeability of small vessels diminishes and no fluid can accumulate in the tissue. The seeds also contain flavonoids, tannins, bittering agents and camphor oil. All parts of the horse chestnut tree are slightly poisonous. The digestive disorders that might occur when consuming parts of the tree are probably caused by aescin and the glucoside aesculin, but alkaloids may also contribute to this.
