An antispasmodic herb suppresses spasms, and reduce muscular tension. Smooth muscles like those that line the stomach contract without conscious control, and cause spasms, cramps and abdominal pain. Some herbal antispasmodics ease muscle cramps throughout the body, others are specific to specific organs and muscle types. Many of these herbs also act on the central nervous system as well and can help relax psychological tension.
