Venixxa is an over-the-counter oral treatment that is a natural health product. It helps relieve symptoms of two conditions that, at first glance, don’t have anything in common: hemorrhoids and chronic venous disease. While the name “chronic venous disease” leaves little doubt as to where the problem lies (yes, the veins), few people know that hemorrhoids, or rather hemorrhoidal disease, is in fact due to disrupted veins down below.
Venixxa’s active ingredient is a micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF). It is composed of citrus bioflavonoids, containing 90% diosmin and 10% other flavonoids expressed as hesperidin.
How is it “natural?”
Venixxa is natural in origin, as it all begins with immature oranges. Small, immature orange fruits (10 mm to 20 mm in diameter) are harvested when they fall from orange trees in groves at the end of the flowering period. But it’s not the delightful, round and juicy orange you’d be used to buying at the grocery store that goes into Venixxa—each single orange blossom produces four or five oranges, but only one will develop fully into an orange like those we might enjoy on a hot summer day. The other three or four oranges from the blossom never fully mature; those are the immature oranges that are crucial in the process of creating Venixxa.
Once harvested, the immature oranges go through a process of drying and grinding: after being left in the sun to dry in the open air for two weeks, they are ground down to a powder which will be the starting material used to extract the active ingredients.
