Marrubium Vulgare, or simply Horehound, has been seen throughout history. It is a member of the Lamiaceae family. The flowering plant and flowering branches of horehound have been used medicinally by both the early Egyptians and Romans. The plant is native to the Mediterranean region but is now found world-wide.
Horehound stimulates digestive juices and the production of bile by the liver. It has demonstrated expectorant activities and helps loosen phlegm. Horehound has been used in traditional folk medicine for cough, indigestion, liver and gallbladder problems, constipation, diarrhea, wounds, sores, and painful menstruation. Horehound not only functions in supplements but can also be enjoyed as a tea.
