Butchers Broom Root (Ruscus aculeatus L) is also known as Knee Holly, Sweet Broom, Box Holly and Jew's Mantle. This has been used as a remedy for a number of ailments such as circulatory issues, diuretic, gallstones and many others.
However where Butchers Broom really shines and why we have made this an addition to our Tea Life range is the effect it can have on the veins, namely post-thrombotic syndrome. Studies have shown very good results in using this root as a natural remedy for Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) which can normally be a little difficult to treat.
It's thought that Saponins and the compound Esculin are the little helpers in Butchers Broom root that help to aid against CVI.
