Parts where Butcher's Broom is used and grown
Butcher’s broom is a spiny, small-leafed evergreen bush native to the Mediterranean region and northwest Europe. It is a member of the lily family and is similar, in many ways, to asparagus. The roots and young stems of butcher’s broom are used medicinally.
Historical or traditional use
Butcher’s broom is so named because the mature branches were bundled and used as brooms by butchers. The young shoots were sometimes eaten as food. Ancient physicians used the roots as a diuretic in the treatment of urinary problems.
Steroidal saponins are thought to be responsible for the medicinal actions of butcher's broom. These constituents are reported to improve the strength and tone of the veins and act as mild diuretics. They may also lead to constriction of the veins, which helps blood return from the extremities. Butcher's broom extracts also exert a mild anti-inflammatory effect.
Clinical trials, one double-blind, have confirmed the benefit of a combination of vitamin C, flavonoids, and butcher's broom for treatment of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). In a comparison study, a product combining butcher's broom extract, the flavonoid hesperidin, and vitamin C was more effective than a synthetic flavonoid product for treating CVI.7 A double-blind study, in which Butcher’s broom alone was used, has confirmed the beneficial effect of this herb in the treatment of CVI.
