Varitone™ is intended to improve venous blood circulation in chronic venous insufficiency, offer symptomatic relief from varicose veins and support lymphatic kinetics. According to Dr. Wade Farrow, there is an intrinsic correlation between poor venous circulation and lymphedema and the inability of the lymphatic system to adequately drain the interstitial fluid that accumulates due to chronic venous hypertension. Improving venous flow will also promote lymphatic drainage.
Veins return blood to the heart from all the organs of the body. The lymphatic vessels are similar to the veins and capillaries of the circulatory system. The two systems influence each other.
Varitone™ provides a unique combination of well research synergistic and complementary ingredients that include Aesculus hippocastanum (Horse chestnut), Melilotus officinalis (Sweet clover), Ruscus aculeatus (Butcher’s broom) with positive effects on venous and lymphatic system.
Horse chestnut is recognized by Health Canada for its ability to treat chronic venous insufficiency, and varicose veins.
Rheum officinale (Chinese rhubarb) is a TCM medicinal ingredient with a contributive effect as it is recommended in Traditional Chinese Medicine Pharmacopoeia for strangularia and edema.
Varitone™ also provides Hesperidin and Selenium which were shown in clinical studies to improve circulation and lymph kinetics. The combination of Butcher’s Broom and Selenium provide a dual benefit i.e. Butcher’s Broom improves lymphatic flow while Selenium has been shown to improve lipedema.
