Horse chestnut trees are native to the mountains of the Middle East and Balkans but are now grown worldwide. Some horse chestnut supplements are made from the tree's dried leaves and nut oil, but if there's any medicinal power in the plant, it's in the nuts themselves. Fresh and unprocessed, the nuts contain poisonous components (unlike edible chestnuts), but preparations made from the dried nuts have been used for centuries in Europe to treat a variety of conditions.
