Progressive Health's Avatrol - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

Progressive Healthís Avatrol is an all-natural supplement specifically formulated for hemorrhoid symptom management. This potent formula contains a synergistic blend of clinically proven ingredients such as horse chestnut, butcherís broom, bilberry, oat fiber and cascara sagrada. Avatrol may be taken to relieve and prevent hemorrhoid symptoms and promote circulatory and gastrointestinal (GI) health.

Hemorrhoids are common in men and women. Hemorrhoids refer to swollen and inflamed veins in the soft tissues around the anus or inside the lower rectum. The most common cause of hemorrhoids is a low-fiber diet.†A low fiber diet causes decreased stool bulk, constipation and straining during bowel movements. Hemorrhoids can form when intra-abdominal pressure increases from straining during defecation or from lack of stool bulk.†Other factors that may cause hemorrhoids include aging, pregnancy, laxative abuse, liver disease and heart disorders.

Research shows that the botanicals horse chestnut, butcherís broom and bilberry can promote circulation through the veins and support and strengthen the walls of the veins. Horse chestnut contains a saponin known as aescin, which has anti-inflammatory properties and reduces swelling (edema). Butcher's Broom contains the flavonoid rutin that strengthens capillaries. Bilberry contains the flavonoid anthocyanosides, potent antioxidants that protect and maintain venous strength and function.†

A high-fiber diet including the use of natural plant fibers such as oat fiber, can be an effective treatment and prevention of hemorrhoids.†Oat fiber has been used as a bulking agent to improve stool consistency and decrease the risk of constipation. Oat has also been used as a remedy for other GI problems including diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome and gastritis.

Avatrol also contains the herb cascara sagrada. This potent botanical is primarily used as a mild, stimulant laxative for the treatment of constipation and prevention of hemorrhoids.

This is the only product that has offered real relief for my hemorroids. I've tried almost every other available OTC treatment and nothing seemed to help. This product is amazing! I definitely recommend it!

Avatrol can be considered as a golden product for those who are suffering from Hemorrhoids, it is a common problem occuring in people after the age of 50. I was suffering from this too and tried various medications but they gave only a moment of relief but result from Avatrol has really made a difference, there is no sign of itching or pain and also it does not make the purse cry as it is affordable.

Avatrol is an amazing product. Hemorrhoids may be most common in individuals over the age of 50 but young adults like myself also suffer from them. I have tried previous products like preparation H and they only have temporary results. Avatrol has made it so that the pain and itching has gone away entirely. As previously mentioned the price is also friendly on the wallet. If you are suffering from hemorrhoids I would definitely recommend this product.

It took some time for this product to take effect but I have absolutely no qualms with the results. To anybody suffering from the agony of hemorrhoids, if you're anything like me you've been fruitlessly hunting for relief everywhere. I'm happy to say that this product offers an all-natural solution that is not only effective, but safe.
