Butchers broom root (Ruscus aculeatus)Latin Name: Ruscus aculeatus
Common Names: Butchers broom root
Butchers broom root comes from a plant known to botanists as ruscus aculeatus, which is actually a member of the asparagus family and distantly related to lilies. While often categorized with other quality bulk herbs, butchers broom root is actually a woody evergreen shrub that is found primarily in deep forests and near temperate coastlines.
Ruscus aculeatus has mildly astringent, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties. Ancient Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder wrote of this particular herb in his work Naturalis Historia, describing its ability to reduce the swelling in diseased limbs.
Natural herbs such as ruscus aculetus powder should be treated with the same caution as prescription drugs; no more than 800 milligrams twice a day with food is recommended and this particular dried herb seems to be most effective when used with other botanical products such as garlic and gingko biloba. As a responsible bulk herbs supplier of organic herbs, roots and other extracts, Starwest Botanicals recommends consultation with a licensed herbalist and a naturopathic physician prior to starting any kind of herbal therapy.
