Butcher's broom is a flowering plant that belongs to the rhizome family. It has a long history of traditional use in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine to relieve mild pain from arthritis, gout, and other joint problems.

The two main active ingredients are berberine and 31 different polysaccharides. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the plant has been used for centuries to treat infections of all kinds, from eye problems such as conjunctivitis to ear infections. The berries have also been used in TCM for treating diarrhea, dysentery, coughs, bronchitis, sinusitis, and urinary tract infections. Berberine itself is known to inhibit bacterial growth in the gastrointestinal tract and may help reduce inflammation throughout the body.
