Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) has a long history of traditional medicinal use from the time of the Ancient Greeks, Romans, while the related plant, Leonurus artemisia, is still used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for longevity and ‘to heal the anxious heart and mind’.

 

Both plants have the same effects as  traditional remedies for the nerves, the heart and the womb.

Motherwort calms the nerves and promotes muscle relaxation (due to the chemical leonurine) and therefore lowers the blood pressure, slows down the heart beat and reduces arrhythmias and palpitations, caused by anxiety and tension, In addition, Motherwort has diuretic effect helping further to lower the blood pressure and reduce swelling and water retention.

Motherwort was used by early midwives as a women’s tonic in heavy periods and to assist with birth because it stimulates the uterine muscles and promotes more coordinated uterus contractions  However, it is considered to be unsafe for pregnant women due to the possibly of inducing early uterine contractions but safe for use after birth to assist with recovery. 

Research has shown that there is some support for these traditional uses, but not enough to make solid claims of effectiveness. 

Warnings: Motherwort extract is much stronger than the herbal infusion (tea) and should not be used while on certain prescription medicines (warfarin) or in heart disease, during heavy periods or in pregnancy without professional supervision.
