Source Naturals, Butcher's Broom is a dietary supplement of a local anti-inflammatory effect. It seals blood vessels, shows anti-oedematous properties and effectively alleviates hemorrhoidal disease symptoms. The product contains the butcher's-broom extract (Ruscus aculeatus) ‒ 500 mg in a single tablet.

The product is recommended in the case of pain and itching around the anus as well as in the inflammation of the rectum lining and in the early stage of hemorrhoidal disease. The supplement can be also used as a support in the therapy after surgery of anal fistulas and hemorrhoids. It can be also effective in the case of “heavy legs”, tingling, fatigue and tremors resulting from the insufficiency of lymphatic vessels and veins.

Chronic venous insufficiency is increasingly common problem among the society and the risk of it increases after the age of 60. Varicose veins in legs can have its primary and secondary causes. Primary varicose veins appear before the age of 40, they have a genetic origins and often occur simultaneously with varicose veins of the anus. Secondary varicose veins can result from i.a. poor venous blood outflow, deep vein inflammation, thrombosis and weakened functioning of muscle pump of the calf.

Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is a plant naturally occurring in the Mediterranean Basin. The English name "Butcher's Broom" is derived from the antibacterial properties and the possibility to use Ruscus aculeatus to disinfect butcher’s chopping boards.

The raw material used in medicine are the rhizome and the root of Ruscus aculeatus, which contain a minimum of 1% of sapogenins which are a mixture of neoruscogenin and ruscogenin. The Ruscus extract contains ruscin, ruscoside, benzofuran derivatives, essential oil, resin and potassium salts.

The Ruscus extract increases venous contractility and normalizes blood circulation as well as contributes to the increase in tension of blood vessel walls due to the alpha-adrenergic properties. This effect is associated with the direct activation of postsynaptic receptors and the indirect activation resulting from the transfer of noradrenaline in nerve endings.

Moreover, the raw material seals the capillaries by inhibiting elastase, an enzyme which is responsible for the degradation of elastin, a protein that is a building material of not only blood vessels but also, among others, tendons and ligaments.

The Ruscus extract may also be effective in the case of orthostatic hypotension, a situation of an excessive pressure drop related to a sudden change of position from lying to standing.

Orthostatic hypotension may be related to nerve disorders (after stroke), medicines (diuretics, sedatives) or have other reasons, for example, can be a result of the prolonged stay in bed, in a standing position or excessive physical effort. Thanks to its properties, the plant prevents the accumulation of blood in the lower limbs without causing high blood pressure in vertical position.

Butcher's broom has also diuretic and mild laxative properties.

To sum it all up, Source Naturals, Butcher's Broom is a dietary supplement which is effective in the case of venous circulation disorders. The product supports the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency, reduces excessive permeability of blood vessels and helps to reduce swelling of legs, in particular, in the area of hips and feet. Moreover, the supplement reduces tissue swelling in the anal canal and relieves symptoms associated with hemorrhoids, such as pain, burning or itching.

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at
