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.
