Description

Lycopus virginicus is a species of flowering plant in the mint family known by many common names, including Virginia Bugleweed, water horehound, American water hoarhound, sweet bugleweed, water bugle, carpenter's herb, green archangel, purple archangel, Paul's betony, woodbetony, wolf foot, and Egyptian's herb.

 It is native to North America, where it is widespread in eastern Canada and the eastern United States. This is a perennial herb with a hairy, squared stem reaching a metre tall.

Habitat types include damp, shady places. It can be found in riparian zones, such as floodplains. It grows in wet spots in forests, woodlands, and swamps.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Antitussive - Traditionally, this herb has been used to cure coughs and respiratory disorders

Cordial - Extracts from this herb are thought to aid in normalizing heart rate, which is indicative of its potential as an alternative treatment for a tachycardia.

Hormone Therapy - Bugleweed is also used as an alternative treatment to hormone therapy. Components of the plant may lower the levels of the thyroid-stimulating hormone and thyroxine. This action could be due to the inhibitory effect of the herbal drug on the binding of the antibodies to the thyroid gland.

Nervine - The nerve calming and vasoconstrictor actions of bugleweed make it useful for pain relief in situations that involve irritability and tension.

Overactive thyroid - Bugleweed is an effective treatment for an overactive thyroid, especially when symptoms include shortness of breath, palpitations, and shaking.
