Beneficial for Varicose Veins & Hemorrhoids
Because it has benefits for circulation, butcher's broom is often used for varicose veins and hemorrhoids.
The definition of varicose veins is twisted and swollen or enlarged veins. They often appear dark blue or purple and occur because blood is allowed to back-flow or to pool. Varicose veins usually don't cause other symptoms but can sometimes be uncomfortable or painful.
Butcher's broom helps by causing veins to contract, stimulating blood flow, and possibly by reducing swelling as well.
Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the lower rectum and anus. The mildest kind are merely uncomfortable, but they can become itchy, painful, and even cause bleeding.
Once again, butcher's broom helps to reduce swelling and pain by causing veins to contract and by stimulating circulation.
