Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is an evergreen shrub indigenous to Mediterranean Europe and some parts of Africa. It was well known to the ancient Greek herbalists and has been used extensively throughout Europe for centuries. Butcher's Broom's primary active constituent is ruscogenin; however, it has also been found to be abundant in other bioactive compounds such as flavonoids, saponins, phytosterols, and glycolic acid. Scientific studies indicate that Butcher's Broom may help to support the maintenance of vascular tone.
