Why is Hem-B-Gone® America's most trusted hemorrhoids treatment?
Hem-B-Gone's™ trusted ingredients have helped thousands of people find safe, fast effective relief from hemorrhoids. Why? Because
Hem-B-Gone® was formulated to address not only the symptoms of hemorrhoids, but the underlying causes that led to the problem in
the first place.
- Hem-B-Gone's™ ingredients have strong anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the
pain, swelling and irritation commonly associated with hemorrhoids
- The many astringent properties in Hem-B-Gone's™ ingredients help to tighten and strengthen
tissues in the muscles near the anus
- Hem-B-Gone® contains ingredients that promote increased blood circulation to help blood flow unrestricted through the body's veins
- Its ingredients can restore elasticity to veins distended by hemorrhoids and, with nutrients known to increase tone in vein walls, actually strengthen the veins.
Witch Hazel (leaf and bark) Extract (Standardized to 15% Tannins)
Witch Hazel is a small, shrub-like tree native to Canada and the eastern United States. First used by Native Americans for its
ability to reduce swelling and inflammation, the witch hazel tree is now cultivated commercially in the US and throughout Europe and
is used around the world. The astringent and anti-inflammatory actions of Witch Hazel are attributed to the tannins it contains,
and only Hem-B-Gone® uses a Witch Hazel extract standardized to 15% tannins.
Horse Chestnut (seed) Extract (Standardized to 20% Aescin)
Horse chestnut seed extracts standardized for aescin content have shown to be beneficial for people with hemorrhoids by improving
circulation and reducing swelling and inflammation1. People given a horse chestnut product
standardized for aescin daily reported significant reduction in pain, bleeding and swelling caused by hemorrhoids in one
double-blind, placebo controlled study1.
Ginger (root) Extract 8:1
Ginger root has been used medicinally around the world since ancient times. Rich in volatile oils, ginger is well known for its
benefits to the digestive system and is prescribed for a variety of ailments including nausea and diarrhea. Ginger is also known
to possess anti-inflammatory qualities2 and the ability to aid in the absorbtion of other nutrients.
Bilberry (fruit) Extract 4:1
Medicinal use of bilberry dates back as far as the 12th century3 and has since been used for a wide array
of conditions, including varicose veins and hemorrhoids for its astringent and anti-imflammatory qualities8.
Bilberry is also believed to promote healthy circulation throughout the body8. Patients in a 4-week,
double-blind, placebo-controlled study who received an oral dose of bilberry extract reported significantly reduced symptoms associated with
hemorrhoids compared to patients who received placebo3.
