Bugleweed (Lycopus americanus) is a bitter, pungent tasting, aromatic herb, with astringent properties, commonly used to treat hyper-thyroid problems (such as Grave’s Disease). It originated in Europe but is native to North America, found in areas east of the Mississippi River. Other common names for bugleweed include ajuga, ashangee, chanvre d'eau, green wolf's foot, gypsy weed, hoarhound, menta de lobo, Paul's betony, sweet bugle, water bugle, and water horehound.
-Bugleweed has been used medicinally by clinical researchers for HYPERthyroid-like symptoms, including heart palpitations and tachycardia (fast heart rate), chest tightness, tremor, anxiety, and insomnia.
Enlarged thyroid or those with thyroid hypofunction should avoid taking bugleweed because it may lower thyroid hormone levels, subsequently worsening thyroid function.
Bugleweed should not be taken with some medications, including: Chemotherapy, Sedatives, Hormone supplements or products (including oral products such as estrogen, or topical products such as progesterone cream), Oral hypoglycemic medication, Insulin, Thyroid medication, Oral contraceptives or fertility drugs
