Ruscus: natural ingredient of Mycream Men

The ruscus (Ruscus aculeatus), also called “butcher’s broom,” is part of the lily family and is a shrub native to Mediterranean Europe and Africa. Its use as a popular remedy dates back to the Middle Evo, for its diuretic properties.
The Council of Europe, for the use of plant extracts for cosmetic purposes, insert the extracts of the root and rhizome as antiedemico and vasoprotective.

A remarkable variety of active principles qualifying the plant: saponins (ruscogenina and neuroscogenina), flavonoids (tetracosanoic acid, crysofanic acid, sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol).
The ruscogenine has shown a high anti-inflammatory, vasoprotective and vasoconstrictor. This action appears to be due to direct activation of alpha-1 adrenergic receptors and alpha-2.

The increase in vascular tone produced by ruscogenine has been used particularly for the dysfunctions and for the treatment of venous and thefatty tissue. Research well elaborated and conducted double-blind, exhibited tests of significant and favorable change of events induced by creams, as Mycream for Men, contain extracts of Ruscus.
