Wikipedia

  1. Cardiac glycoside

    Cardiac glycosides are a class of organic compounds that increase the output force of the heart and decrease its rate of contractions by inhibiting the cellular sodium-potassium ATPase pump. Their beneficial medical uses are as treatments for congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias; however, their relative toxicity prevents them from being widely used. Most commonly found as secondary metabolites in several plants such as foxglove plants, these compounds nevertheless have a diverse range of biochemical effects regarding cardiac cell function and have also been suggested for use in cancer treatment.

It works by inhibiting the Na+/K+ ATPase enzyme, leading to increased intracellular sodium concentration, inducing the release of calcium ions, which in turn strengthens heart contractions.
