Bugleweed is a medicinal herb that dates back to medieval times. It has a sedative quality and is generally used as a remedy for insomnia, heart palpitations, and anxiety. It’s also commonly used to alleviate premenstrual syndrome and support thyroid function. There are compounds in bugleweed that reduce the thyroid hormone called thyroxin. People with hyperthyroidism overproduce this hormone, so it can relax the thyroid and calm the symptoms associated with the condition. It works well for Graves’ Disease patients who experience mild hyperthyroid symptoms, such as heart palpitations, insomnia and tremors. Unlike most hyperthyroid medications, it’s considered safe for long term use. Another benefit of this herb is its ability to moderate estrogen and prolactin, which can help reduce breast pain and swelling during PMS, and because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it also helps with menstrual cramps and headaches.
