Butchers Broom Herb Liquid 50ml - HealthAid
Butcher’s broom and its compounds are associated with several potential health benefits.
May Reduce Inflammation
Inflammation is your body’s natural way to heal itself and combat infections.
However, chronic inflammation can cause health problems, as it increases your risk of certain diseases (2).
Butcher’s broom contains compounds, such as ruscogenin, that may help suppress inflammatory signals and potentially treat damage caused by inflammation.
For instance, in test-tube studies, ruscogenin reduced inflammation markers and stopped the production of an enzyme which promotes cartilage breakdown in people with osteoarthritis (3, 4).
An animal study noted that ruscogenin reduced inflammation markers associated with diabetes and treated damage caused by such inflammation (5).
However, human studies on butcher’s broom are lacking. More research is needed before firm conclusions can be drawn.
May Treat Poor Blood Circulation
Butcher’s broom may treat conditions that affect blood circulation.
For example, it may combat chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), a painful condition in which your legs’ veins struggle to deliver blood back to your heart (6).
Several compounds in butcher’s broom help veins contract, allowing blood to return to the heart (7).
In fact, research indicates that butcher’s broom significantly reduces tension and swelling around the lower legs and ankles in adults with CVI (8).
Additionally, an analysis of 20 studies found that a supplement that contained butcher’s broom significantly reduced pain, cramps and swelling in adults with CVI (9).
May Reduce Symptoms of Orthostatic Hypotension
Orthostatic hypotension (OH) — a sudden drop in blood pressure that happens when you stand up too quickly — is a frequent problem in older adults (10).
Common symptoms of OH include lightheadedness, dizziness, weakness and nausea.
Normally, your reflexes counter this effect by constricting blood vessels in your lower body. However, these reflexes appear to weaken with age, which may cause OH.
Because butcher’s broom helps constrict veins, it may prevent mild cases of OH (11).
However, there are no human studies on butcher’s broom and OH. Such research is needed before recommendations can be made.
May Reduce Your Risk of Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are a common health concern, especially among older adults.
To avoid hemorrhoids, many people turn to natural products, such as butcher’s broom.
Butcher’s broom is used in alternative medicine to treat hemorrhoids and other vascular conditions, as it appears to reduce swelling and help veins contract (12).
In one study, 69% of people taking a supplement containing butcher’s broom rated it an effective treatment for hemorrhoids that reduced pain, swelling and other symptoms (13).
However, only a handful of studies examine butcher’s broom as a hemorrhoid treatment, so more research is needed.
