Traditional Uses

The name Ruscus comes from the Greek word for “myrtle” because of its similarities with that plant. The English name butcher’s broom comes from Mediterranean butchers, who used to sweep away meat rests from their tables with a bunch of this plant’s stems and “leaves”. In 1950, the French researchers H. Lapin and C. Sannié isolated ruscogenin, the main saponin in the roots and rhizomes of this plant. Decoction of Butcher’s broom roots and rhizomes is popularly used to prevent and to treat venous insufficiency, urinary infections, gout and dysmenorrhea.
