Health Notes

Butcher's Broom

Butcher's Broom
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Dose: Standardized extract providing 15 to 30 mg ruscogenins three times per day
Butcher's broom is a traditional remedy for CVI that has been backed up by clinical trials.(more)
Atherosclerosis

Varicose Veins

Supplementing with butcher's broom may be helpful for varicose veins.(more)
Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Dose: Standardized extract providing 15 to 30 mg ruscogenins three times per day

Another traditional remedy for CVI is butcher's broom. One double-blind trial used a combination of butcher's broom, the flavonoid hesperidin, and vitamin C. This was found to be better than a placebo for treating CVI.1 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.2 A double-blind study, in which Butcher's broom alone was used, has confirmed the beneficial effect of this herb.3 Clinical trials have used one capsule, containing standardized extracts providing 15 to 30 mg of ruscogenins, three times each day. The amount of butcher's broom extract used in these trials is 150 mg two times per day. Other sources recommend standardized extracts providing 15 to 30 mg of ruscogenins, given three times each day.
