Butcher's Broom General Information
Butcher’s Broom is a Mediterranean evergreen bush that is a fairly common, which grows up to three feet high. The leaves are small and laced with brown membranes and the root, which is the medicinal part, is fleshy. This herb has a few small greenish flowers that when matured turn into, red cherry-sized berries. This herb has spread to many parts of the world: Great Britain, United States and Western Asia. For hundreds of years, butchers used the branches as broom straw, but it also has a long history of medicinal use for treating urinary conditions. In the first century, Dioscorides prescribed Butcher's Broom as a laxative and diuretic and seventeenth-century apothecary-astrologer Nicholas Culpeper claimed that a decoction of the root be drunk and a poultice of the berries and leaves applied to promote the healing of broken bones. In the 1950s, French investigators found that an alcoholic extract of this herb’s rhizome produced vasoconstriction (blood vessel narrowing) in tests.

Cytisus scoparius L., a common roadside plant in the Pacific Northwest, and Spanish broom or gorse (Spartium junceum L.), which grows in California, are both yellow-flowered leguminous shrubs that have been used in folk medicine, but neither is the so-called Butcher's Broom that is discussed in this section.

Butcher's Broom Uses & Scientific Evidence For
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.

Butcher's Broom Dosage Information
Butcher’s Broom comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. A standard oral dosage should supply 5 to 10 mg of ruscogenin daily. For treating hemorrhoids, Butcher’s Broom can be applied in the form of an ointment or as a suppository. This herb is more effective when taken in conjunction with vitamin C. It is important to read product label directions before use.
