PADMA VEIN-TONIC strengthens and tones the vascular walls of the veins and stimulates the excretion of water from the body. It is used by venous symptoms, like heaviness in the legs, varicose veins, or hemorrhoids. PADMA VEIN-TONIC is an herbal medicine with 13 active ingredients, including herbs, barks, and roots.
According to Tibetan Medicine, the formula works against cold Beken disturbances, which become noticeable in fluid retention and congestions of body fluids, especially in the lower regions of the body and the legs.
The herbal composition has gently warming and diuretic properties. The veins are strengthened, the collected fluid comes in motion, and the excretion of water is stimulated.

Patient information PADMA VEIN-TONIC (only in German)
The PADMA VEIN-TONIC herbal formula comes from the Siberian branch of the Tibetan Medicine (Buryatia). The formulas are based on the Se’bru (pomegranate) family of plants, which have warming properties and are used in cold Bad kan disturbances.
The herbs in PADMA VEIN-TONIC include precious plant-based active ingredients. Tannins, flavonoids and essential oils are antispasmodic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, protect the mucosa, and are astringent (pulling together).
The mineral salts, silica, and bitter substances have a diuretic and dehydrating effect.
The sharp substances and fruit acid containing herbal ingredients from pomegranate, Indian long pepper, cardamom, and cinnamon cassia are seen by the Tibetan Medicine classically used as warming substances, especially by chronic fluid retention (Beken) and “cold kidney” disorders.
1 capsule contains the powder of: Fumitory herb 60 mg, yarrow herb 60 mg, ammonium chloride 30 mg, nettle leaves 30 mg, cardamom, safflower flowers 30 mg, pomegranate seeds 30 mg, long pepper 30 mg, cinnamon cassia 30 mg, oak bark 15 mg, buckthorn bark 15 mg, dandelion root 15 mg, raw sugar cane 15 mg, with excipients.
Adults and adolescents (over 12 years) take 1-2 capsules in the morning, best 15 to 30 minutes before a meal with lukewarm water.
With acute symptoms, in the morning and at noon, take 1 to 2 capsules.
The PADMA VEIN-TONIC stimulates the excretion of water. More frequent urination can be the result. If this is uncomfortable, you can reduce the dose.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
CONGESTION IN THE LEGS
Depending on the body size and position, the pressure from a 1 to 1½ meter high water column rests upon the vessel walls of the leg veins. In contrast to the walls of the arteries, the vein walls are much thinner and have hardly any smooth muscle fibers.
The muscle pump handles the venous forward transport of the blood back to the heart. The tension and letting go of the leg muscles are thicker and press the veins together. The blood inside the veins is being pushed through the veins toward the heart. During the relaxation of the leg muscles, venous valves prevent the backflow of the blood. Movement, especially regular, strong walking, is the greatest help and the best protection for the walls of the veins.
In a congenital weakness of the veins, elevating the legs to ease the backflow in the veins to the heart and wearing compression stockings is also helpful.
COLD KIDNEY DISEASES
In Tibetan Medicine, the consequences from a lack of heat and energy of the abdomen and legs are summarized as “cold kidney disease.” An active kidney energy and warmth in the lower abdomen are not only important for good digestion and for the function of the sexual organs, but also for the bladder and the urinary system.
A lack of this energy can lead to a cold feeling in the abdomen and lower back and fluid retention.
Gently warming formulas that support the kidney energy can relieve cases of excess fluid retention and congestion in the legs.
These show up with symptoms, such as aching, heavy and swollen legs, edema in legs and feet, lymphatic blockages, and varicose veins, and hemorrhoids.
