A compound in butcher’s broom called ruscogenin has been shown to repair the delicate circulatory machinery that helps our blood vessels become stronger and work efficiently. Butcher’s broom is well known for treating varicose veins and the symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). One multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of patients with CVI found that butcher’s broom reduced leg swelling extensively, especially in the lower leg and ankle. By 12 weeks, the study participants reported a noticeable improvement in the heaviness and tension felt in their legs.
Butcher’s broom extract was shown to help the veins in the legs pump blood back up toward the heart, greatly reducing hard-to-live-with CVI symptoms. Look for a butcher’s broom supplement with standardized ruscogenins. For the ultimate in support, choose a product that contains both butcher’s broom and red vine leaf extract.
