What is Swanson Full Spectrum Motherwort?

This rather pretty, upright, prickly bush of pale pink to purple colour strikes something of a resemblance to the common thistle but it is actually closer to another type of British wild flower - hailing from the mint family.

Also known as Throw wart, Lion's Ear and Lion's Tail (largely referring to its length, hairiness and shape) it is its common name that gives us our first clue ass to its true use - Leonurus Cardiaca.

Like so many plants of its kind, Swanson Full Spectrum Motherwort has a history of use in medicine and has been used in a wide range of healing capacities for some time now. The ancient Greeks (from whom the name Motherwort originally derived - translating as mother's herb) used to give it to expectant mothers to calm them and ease their anxieties.

There are even stories of towns whose water supply ran through a thicket of Motherwort - the custodians of this town living far longer than was expected at the time. Although, likely apocryphal, since they claimed to have one resident who lived to over 300 years old.

What is Swanson Full Spectrum Motherwort used for?

In spite of its history and even its name, Motherwort is now thought of primarily as a herb of the heart - working as both a cardio tonic and a nervine tonic. So often the condition of the heart is directly related to the amount of stress we suffer and the subsequent pressure we put on our blood vessels, so it is reassuring to know that Motherwort can actually address both of those issues simultaneously.

Swanson Full Spectrum Motherwort contains an alkaloid chemical called Leonurine which is a mild vasodilator. A vasodilator is an agent which dilates the blood vessels, allowing blood to pass through them more freely and reducing the chances of developing hypertension.

It also works as an antispasmodic, meaning that it relaxes smooth muscles like the heart. But it is when Swanson Full Spectrum Motherwort works on our stress levels that it does our heart the most good - combating high blood pressure as well as calming our minds too. It has been said that Motherwort "Gladdens the mind to gladden the heart".

It is worth noting that it is also recommended for its original use, easing pain and mood swings commonly associated with both pregnancy and menstruation. Truly, this prickly little bush could be considered a woman's best friend.
