This Mediterranean evergreen has a long history of traditional use within the therapy of urinary complaints. Butcher's Broom literally acquired its identity from its getting its branches used as broom straw by butchers. Recently, it's been studied as a therapy for complaints with regards to veins.
Butcher's broom has been checked by Germany's Commission E as a useful herb for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Venous insufficiency, a situation involving varicosities, involves inflammation, soreness and fatigue within the veins in the calves. Commission E also recommends Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) for hemorrhoids.
These 2 pieces of Commission E advice have been in place even earlier than any meaningful studies were done comparing Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) for either of these purposes. In spite of that fact, a couple of studies finally done recently have offered initial proof for its use in chronic venous insufficiency. No recent studies have evaluated the potency of Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) for hemorrhoids, however hemorrhoids are much like varicosities, so it's a realistic presumption that Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is also valuable in this way.
Various approaches for chronic venous insufficiency have also shown a capability for addressing arm inflammation (lymphedema) following surgical procedure for breast health issues. One study does indicate that Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is also valuable for this situation.
