Butcher's Broom Root
Butchers Broom Root 470 mg 100 capsules by Natures Way.
Butcher's Broom is related to asparagus, with young tender shoots that can be eaten. The name Butcher's Broom comes from its historical use as a broom in European butcher shops.
Germany’s Commission E (1991) approved the use of Butcher’s Broom as supportive therapy for hemorrhoids (for the itching and burning) and venous insufficiency, a condition closely related to varicose veins, due to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to constrict small veins. Butcher’s Broom has also been used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, circulatory disorders, edema, swollen ankles, Meniere’s disease (vertigo accompanied by ringing in the ears and deafness), obesity, Raynauds disease (skin discoloration because an abnormal spasm of the blood vessels causes a diminished blood supply), thrombophlebitis (inflammation of a vein cause by or associated with the formation of a blood clot), and vertigo. It is also good for treating bladder and kidney problems.
Butcher’s Broom had been in decline as a medicinal herb until the 50’s. It was at this time that researchers discovered that an extract of the root contained two compounds, ruscogenin and neuorscogenin, these compounds constrict the veins and this improves the blood flow and increases the strength and tone of those veins.
