Butcher's Broom Supplements and Formulas

A member of the lily family, Butcher’s Broom has been a popular natural remedy for centuries. Read on to learn why.

What is Butcher’s Broom? (Ruscus aculeatus))

Butcher’s broom is a small, low-growing evergreen shrub, native to Western Europe. It has stiff, tough branches. According to history, its name comes from the fact that butchers would bundle the branches together to sweep and cleanse their cutting boards. Hence the name.

With shoots similar to asparagus in shape, butcher’s broom was used as a food source, although they taste much more bitter than asparagus. Typically, it’s the stems and roots used to create supplements.

Other names include: Box Holly, Fragon, Jew's Myrtle, Kneeholm, Knee Holly, Petit Houx, Pettigree, Sweet Broom, Rusci Aculeati, Rhizoma, Rusco, Ruscus aculeatus. Do not confuse Butcher’s Broom with Broom Cytisus scoparius) or Spanish broom (Spartium junceum).

What are the benefits of Butcher’s Broom?

For over 2000 years, Butcher’s Broom has been used in extracts and poultices for digestion, urinary and circulation, but it wasn’t until the 1950s that it became mainstream.

Today Butcher's Broom is commonly taken specifically for leg circulation, such as cramps, swelling, varicose veins, and itching. Occasionally, herbalists may use this herb for kidney health, heart health, or hemorrhoids.

How does Butcher’s Broom work?

Butcher’s broom contains chemicals called saponins that researchers believe cause constriction of arteries and veins, particularly in the legs.
