For example‚ witch hazel (also known as hamamelis virginiana) may work to reduce the visible signs of varicose veins because witch hazel extract is high in tannins‚ which are substances that can serve as astringents; astringents might play a role in drying up‚ tightening‚ and hardening tissues.
In addition‚ witch hazel contains antioxidants that may work to protect your cells from free radical damage. Due to its potential to shrink swollen tissue‚ witch hazel extract may also play a role in alleviating certain symptoms associated with mild laryngitis‚ such as a sore throat.
Furthermore‚ witch hazel extract is a good source of anti-inflammatory compounds like flavonoids‚ resin‚ and procyanadins; as a result‚ this product might work to relieve mild inflammation in certain veins (phlebitis).
