Escin (sometimes spelled Aescin) is an extract from the plantations of Horse Chestnut trees we grow in Bulgaria.

The extract itself is a mixture of saponins and other compounds known for their inflammatory, vasoconstrictor and vasoprotective effects. This is the reason behind the horse chestnut’s reputed medical properties.

If you are looking for a source of Escin which makes it possible to buy wholesale while still having a sustainable product which can be traced from tree to its final delivery to you, Galen-N is standing by.
