With a botanical name like Leonurus cardia, we can have an idea of the uses of Motherwort. For a courageous heart.

It was historically known for strengthening and gladdening the heart.  

Due to the presence of the chemical alkaloid leonurine, a mild vasodilator, motherwort acts as an anti-spasmodic to relax smooth muscles, one of those muscles being the heart. Chinese studies have also found motherwort to decrease clotting and the level of fat in the blood. That it can, in its calming nature, slow heart palpitations and rapid heartbeat. Motherwort has a mildly diuretic affect, also aiding high blood pressure. 

  • Cardiotonic
  • Decreases cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Prevents blood clots and reduces blood platelet aggregation
  • Slows down heart rate and lowers blood pressure
  • Improves cardiovascular circulation and prevents heart palpitations

It is also used in treatment of overactive thyroid, depression, anxiety, insomnia, hot flashes as well as menstrual regulator, thanks to its relaxing effects on the nervous system and hormone balancing abilities.
