Abstract

Hemorrhoids are one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders seen by general practitioners. Several clin. studies report the beneficial effects of oral supplementation with Aesculus hippocastanum, Ruscus aculeatus, Centella asiatica, Hamamelis virginiana, and bioflavonoids to reduce symptoms assocd. with hemorrhoids. In view of this, the rational approach sustaining the development of the new herbal multi-component formula was developed, that is characterized by antioxidant ingredients, such as tocotrienols, bioflavonoids, and ascorbic acid. The herbal formula was administered as soft gel capsules that contained a tocotrienols enriched ext. (70% titered in tocotrienols), Rosa canina (70% titered in ascorbic acid), Ginkgo biloba (20%, titered in flavonoids), Ruscus aculeatus, and Centella asiatica (10%, titered in asiaticoside), Aesculus hippocastanum (20%, titered in escin) and Silybum marianum (30%, titered in silybin). The results showed improvement in the overall uncomfortable symptoms and a marked improvement in the severity of prolapse
