• Traditionally used to help support menstruation ailments, diarrhea, water retention and more.
Shepherd's Purse, also called Pickpocket, Witch's Pouch, Rattle Pouch, Caseweed, Blindweed, Mother's Heart, Cocowort, and St. James' Wort, is indigenous to Europe and western Africa, and very abundant in Great Britain. The herb, which grows up to 2 feet in height, is considered a weed in many areas. The term "purse" comes from the appearance of the seed pod, which is flat and heart-shaped, and contains many small, oval seeds, and resembles the purses, or pouches that people carried in the Middle Ages. Shepherd's Purse produces numerous, tiny, white flowers, and blooms from Spring until Fall.

Shepherd's Purse has been tried for health benefits for centuries. In Chinese health, it can be used to help support dysentery and eye problems. People still chew the seeds of the Shepherd's Purse to improve their vision. In Europe, Shepherd's Purse has primarily been used in supporting bleeding disorders, often in conjunction with Goldenseal. The herb was used to help support symptoms of hemorrhaging in the stomach, and especially for urinary tract bleeding. Shepherd's Purse has been used regulate menstrual problems, and by midwives to stimulate uterine contractions and avoid post-partum hemorrhage. It has also been shown to help support urinary tract irritation and can be used as a mild diuretic.

During World War I, Shepherd's Purse was used by British Soldiers to help slow the bleeding from wounds. It can also be used as a substitute for quinine. Shepherd's Purse contains saponins, bursinic acid, flavonoids (including Quercetin), choline, beta carotene, and Vitamins B, C, and K. Shepherd's Purse can also be tried to help support diarrhea, kidney stones, hemorrhoids, nosebleeds, and varicose veins.

This well-known weed is a small annual or biennial herb with a rosette of oblong, deeply lobed leaves directly on the ground. Small, white flowers are borne on a single central stalk that may be up to 0.4 m in height. The characteristic heart-shaped fruit resembles a traditional shepherd's purse (hence the common name).

Shepherd's Purse
Capsella bursa-pastoris L.

Family: Brassicaceae.

Other Names: Capsella; bourse-à-pasteur (French); Hirtentäschel (German); borsa del potare (Italian); bolsa de pastor (Spanish).

Origin: Europe; now a cosmopolitan weed. Raw material for traditional health use is wild-harvested in eastern Europe and Asia.

Parts Used: Whole herb (Bursae pastoris herba).

Therapeutic Category: Antihaemorrhagic, urinary antiseptic.

Uses and Properties: The herb has been used traditionally to help fight bleeding and to help support heavy periods (menorthagia), diarrhoea and bladder issues. In Chinese health it can be used to help support unspecified eye problems and dysentery.

Active Ingredients: The plant contains numerous flavonoids (rutin, diosmin, hesperidin), amino acids (proline), monoterpenoids (camphor) and glucosinolates (sirilgrin). The presence of various amines (acetylcholine, choline, tyramine) and saponins has been reported and details need to be verified.

Health Effects: Despite animal studies showing anti-inflammatory, diuretic, hypotensive and other effects, the traditional uses of shepherds purse are not well explained. It is thought that a peptide with oxytocin-like activity is responsible for the antihaemorrhagic action. When injected, extracts show muscarine-like effects (dose-dependent decreases and helps support the increase in blood pressure), positive inotropic and chronotropic effects on the heart and increased contraction of the uterus.

Notes: The archaeological record shows that Capsella seeds have been used by man since ancient times.

Status: Pharm.; Comm. E+.

Preparation and Dosage: The herb is traditionally taken as a tea (mostly in combination with other herbs). For internal and external use, about 3 - 5 grams of finely chopped material is added to a cup of boiling water. As a styptic, it is applied to bleeding injuries of the skin and instified in the nose to help support nosebleeds. Of the extract, take 10 - 30 drops.



Also known as Besom Weed, Thiaspi Bursa pastoris Bastard Cress, this plant is used in popular medicine as a vulnerary and astringent.

The pungent, sweet aerial portions of shepherd's purse have a hemostatic, antihemorrhagic, diuretic, antiseptic (urinary), and antipyretic action on the body. In particular, the blood, liver, stomach, and uterus are most affected by the actions of shepherd's purse. Bleeding and bladder concerns are the indications that can be supported by this herb. Biochemical analysis has revealed the presence of flavonoids, luteolin-7-rutinoside, quercit in-3-rutinoside, plant amino acids, choline, tyramine, diosmin and acetylcholine.

The alcoholic extract of fresh shepherd's purse can be used for stopping bloody fluxes and hemorrhages. It is specific for chronic menorrhagia with frequent and prolonged menstruation or when the discharge is practically constant and colorless. It can also be used by midwives for postpartum bleeding, Finally, it is effective to help support urinary inflammations such as bladder health concerns.

For the symptomatic support of bleeding , take thirty drops every half hour, tapering off gradually as symptoms subside. If symptoms persist, try to obtain professional advice.

Shepherds purse takes its name from the heart-shaped seed pods which were thought to resemble the leather pouches once carried by shepherds. These same seed pods account for another of its country names mother's hearts, and the plant (like others with "mother's" or "lady's" as part of their name) is a valuable gynaecological supportive helpful for menstrual irregularities and recommended as a tea in childbirth to encourage contractions and ease labor pains.

The herb can be eaten in salads, added to sandwiches and was once gathered and cooked as a spring vegetable: it has a pleasant, spicy flavor.

As well as having astringent and styptic properties, shepherd's purse is a urinary antiseptic and diuretic, so can be helpful for bladder health concerns. It is especially suitable in severe cases where there is blood in the urine. Drinking the tea may help support heavy periods, while its astringency can also be helpful for chronic diarrhoea and digestive tract health.

The plant can also be used in traditional China as an astringent styptic and wound healer; while the seeds are believed to help improve the eyesight. It can also be tried to help support fevers in malaria.

Changed my life!

After suffering with endometriosis and fibroids for over 20 years, nothing helped to control the incessant bleeding. I have been on every medicine available (I was put through menopause too)and had surgery every other year. I was anemic and tired all the time. I tried Shepard's Purse AGAINST my doctor's orders. The changes were immediate and there's no side effects! I just went for my check up after taking Shepard's Purse for the last year, and my doctor was impressed! She said I should keep taking it, as it is the only thing that has made my life liveable again. If you suffer from heavy periods or endometriosis, etc. DO NOT hesitate to try this, it's a life saver!

Carla09-28-2012

Why doesn't the average woman know about this?

This is seriously the best thing that I have ever used! It cut my period time from 14 days to 4... By my 3rd pill, I saw a significant difference in the amount of flow I was having. A life saver literally. I'm anemic because of the amount of blood loss that I have monthly. The anemia often results in blood transfusions. I literally feel fatigued for 2 weeks out of the month. I'm really hoping that now it'll cut down my fatigue and anemia.

So far so good and I'm very excited about this cool discovery!

In 2 days it stopped 3 months of bleeding!

I have had heavy bleeding that caused potentially fatal levels of anemia and had to be given blood transfusions three times in the past year. My last visit to the hospital I received 4 blood transfusions and the doctors performed a D& C to thin out my uterine lining to hopefully slow down the bleeding. I bled for 3 months straight. Even taking up to three birth control pills a day to try to stop it. The doctors were at a loss of what to do. I did some research and found out about Shepherd's Purse, but the tinctures taste absolutely horrid and I didn't know if I would continue to try that route based on a theory. But I got the pills which we very easy and convenient to take. I started with 1 pill 3 times a day but that wasn't working for me. I had to go up to 2 pills 6 times a day and after 2 days it had done what no doctor had been able to do in years. After I stopped bleeding I tapered off but am still taking a couple a day just in case (it's only been about a week). I am thrilled to tell my doctor about my results and am so relieved to be feeling normal again. Thank you so much! If any woman out there has a problem with heavy bleeding I strongly recommend trying this route! I also recommend checking out this book called Woman's Herb's; Women's Heath by Christopher Hobbs and Kathi Keville. Always check with your doctor about your heath and woman's issues but make sure they listen to you and let you try taking herbs verses all those fake hormones that have terrible side effects! I have had a 16 yr history that could have been helped by herbs all along!!!!

Shepherd's Purse is Awesome

I was looking for something to stop my bleeding while I go on vacation. And to handle my oh so painful cramps. I came across Shepherd's Purse. Ordered it, used it and bleeding and cramps are completely gone. No pain, no bleeding. We as women must spread the word about this natural product that is saving women from surgeries and taking man made drugs that are not suppose to go into our bodies. I am so elated about this product that I just can't say enough about it.
