Shepherd's Purse Extract
Shepherd's Purse is an astringent, anti-inflammatory herb that contains compounds which accelerate blood clotting. German Commission E approves shepherd's purse as a treatment for persistent nosebleeds and menorrhagia(heavy menstrual flow). Traditionally, healers used it externally on wounds or hemorrhoids and internally for heavy menstruation and heavy bleeding during labor ONLY after the placenta has been delivered. The herb works similar to oxytocin and helps the uterus contract after birth, which may help the uterus to pre-pregnant size faster.
Because shepherd's purse is a diuretic, some healers also use the herb for uti and cystitis.
