Butcher’s broom is a traditional remedy for hemorrhoids, varicose veins, circulatory conditions, relief of leg pain caused by poor circulation – including swelling, itching, cramping, heaviness, tension and numbness. Butcher’s broom reduces urine retention, helps relieve constipation, kidney stones, gastrointestinal disorders, orthostatic hypotension and even symptoms of syphilis. A 2002 study of chronic venous insufficiency found that butcher’s broom extract administered for 12 weeks significantly reduced symptoms. Dosage for treating circulatory problems is 150 milligrams three times a day. I recommend butcher’s broom accompanied with CoQ10 to multiply the benefits of both supplements to improve micro-circulation.
