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.

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.
Oat Straw (as Avena Sativa) Extract 10:1
Oat straw has anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in hemorrhoids treatments to address the exhaustion and depression associated with hemorrhoids symptoms.
