Did you know that up to 70% of Canadians are affected by hemorrhoids? Hemorrhoids, simply put, are swollen veins. They occur when the blood vessels in the area have become weak and leaky, resulting in reduced blood supply being returned to the heart. These weak, leaky blood vessels often spell pain, discomfort, swelling, and inflammation in the form of hemorrhoids.

Some common reasons for hemorrhoids include constipation, straining for bowel movements, chronic diarrhea, or simply sitting on the toilet for extended periods of time. Obesity and pregnancy can also cause hemorrhoids. Unfortunately, as we age we are more likely to suffer from hemorrhoids due to weakening tissues that stretch with aging.

The best way to avoid hemorrhoids is to ensure you are getting enough fibre in your diet, which will ensure that your stool passes easily. Include high-fibre foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grain in your daily diet. Drink plenty of water and exercise daily. Unfortunately, even with our best efforts, we can end up suffering from hemorrhoids. Thankfully, there is a natural treatment in the form of a capsule. Flora’s HemorAid is clinically proven to relieve symptoms of hemorrhoids, including pain, edema and bleeding.

Each vegetarian capsule of HemorAid contains two bioflavonoids, Diosmin and hesperidin, that work together to repair, strengthen and tone blood vessels. They also provide antioxidant support against further free radical damage, and reduce inflammation. The swelling, pain, heaviness, leakage, and poor blood flow is gradually reduced over the course of a couple of months.

Found in the white pith portion of the peel, Diosmin and hesperidin are extracted from citrus fruits including bitter oranges and lemons in the warm, sunny climates of Spain and the south of France. If you’re hoping to find them in citrus fruits at the supermarket though, you’re out of luck. Diosmin amounts are at their highest in the immature fruits and then decline significantly as the fruit grows and ripens.

Since the 1980s, Diosmin and hesperidin have been studied in numerous clinical trials for their benefits in strengthening and protecting weak blood vessels. Most of the studies done on Diosmin and hesperidin lasted between 1 and 12 months, but the use of these ingredients to protect the vascular system dates all the way back to 1971 in France. As these bioflavonoids have been studied and used for many decades, they have been shown to be safe for long-term use.

Studies have found that Diosmin and hesperidin helped relieve the symptoms of hemorrhoids, leg ulcers and varicose veins (due to poor venous blood flow) and accelerated their rate of healing over a larger area than usual. For optimal absorption, these flavonoids are micronized into a smaller size, and then encapsulated as 450 mg of Diosmin and 50mg of hesperidin per capsule. These proportions are the standard amounts per capsule as they were discovered to be the optimal ratio in the clinical studies.

HemorAid is sustainable and vegan, so you can use it with confidence, knowing it will effectively provide hemorrhoid relief and repair your veins in a non-invasive, and less expensive way than other available options. Two capsules a day is all that is needed to provide relief for chronic hemorrhoid-sufferers. For acute hemorrhoids, please see the product label for the loading and maintenance dosages. You should speak to your health care practitioner prior to using HemorAid if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you are taking any prescription medication.
