Broomrape Benefits & Information

Broomrape is a perennial obligate parasite member of the Orobanchaceae plant family.  It does not contain any chlorophyll and relies on its host for nutrients and water.  Broomrape can be found in the desert regions of China.  The stems are harvested in the spring, then cut and dried for medicinal use.

In traditional Chinese medicine Broomrape is considered a superior tonic and is used to ease pain, replenish blood, and strengthen kidney yang.  Studies have found broomrape benefits immune health, supports sexual health, promotes kidney health, protects nerve health, benefits male reproductive function, supports circulatory health, and may ease occasional constipation.  Broomrape contains antioxidant properties that help the body fight damage from outside stress and may slow aging.

Cut broomrape can be made into a tea or tincture for easy dosing.  Powdered broomrape can be used to make your own fresh filler-free capsules.
