Motherwort is a nervine somewhat successful in managing menstrual period and uterine complaints, notably these inspired by nervousness or tension similar to delayed or silenced menstruation, menopausal concerns, and false labor aches. It is usually successful in managing irregular heart beat, notably brought on by tension, and is a superb heart tonic.

how does it affect the heart?

Motherwort is widely regarded as a heart tonic. It promotes relaxation of the heart tissue reducing palpitations. This has been supported by an in vitro study that demonstrated how motherwort slowed the beating of the heart cells of rats when exposed to substances that, otherwise, accelerate heart cell contractions. Germany's Commission E has authorized motherwort to relieve symptoms of rapid or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias) caused by anxiety and stress in addition to its use for thyroid disorders.
