Research Facts
It is used to treat congestive heart failure, heart rhythm problems, shock treatment, low blood pressure (hypotension) and as a central nervous system stimulant. It is a cardiac glycoside, meaning it can increase cardiac contraction force without affecting other heart factors too much, though it is not effective in treating heart attacks due to the deleterious effects of the drug. Also known as ouabain (an african plant), it is extremely toxic; it used to be used as a poison on the tips of arrows of African hunters and warriors.
