What Makes Butcher's Broom Different?

Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is a European member of the lily family with stiff, pointed life-like twigs, greenish white flowers and shiny red berries. Related to Asparagus, its young tender shoots can be eaten. The name Butcher's Broom comes from its use as a broom in butcher's shops in Europe up until the 20th century.

Butcher's Broom is helpful in the treatment of both hemorrhoids and other types of varicose veins as this herb strengthens and builds up the structure of the veins. Butcher's Broom may also improve poor circulation and can act as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism and in cases of inflammation in the kidney and bladder.

Facts About Butcher's Broom

Butcher's broom has a long history of use in treating venous disorders such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins. The active ingredients in butcher's broom are ruscogenins. These compounds have demonstrated a wide range of pharmacological actions, including anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictor effects. In Europe, butcher's broom extracts are used extensively, both internally and externally, to treat varicose veins and hemorrhoids. Most of the clinical research has been on butcher's broom extracts in combination with herperidin (a bioflavanoid) and vitamin C.
