Butcher's Broom is a plant characteristic of the Mediterranean climate. For therapeutic purposes, its roots and rhizomes are used, which contain a large number of bioactive compounds, including two unique steroid saponins – ruscogenin and neogenogenin. They have a beneficial effect on the condition of blood vessels, they help to increase the contractility of venous vessels, improve venous pressure, and normalize blood flow. Extracts from the butcher’s broom also act as anti-oedematous and anti-inflammatory agents.
Supplements in this category are most often used to alleviate ailments caused by inefficient venous circulation. They are ideal for people performing both standing and sedentary work – they may prevent varicose veins and hemorrhoids and relieve the feeling of "heavy legs". As an adjuvant, butcher’s broom extracts are worth reaching in case of edema, both those resulting from the injury and others, for example, related to excessive water retention in the female body in the second phase of the cycle. Preparations in this category may also support the treatment of orthostatic hypotension.
The full spectrum of pro-health properties of the butcher’s broom can be only obtained from original supplements that contain powdered over-ground and underground parts of the plant. A wide range of such products can be found in our store.
