North America has one of the highest rates of heart disease in the world. Since the 1940s, cardiovascular
disease (CVD) has been the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the region. It is estimated that over
56 million Americans have some form of CVD. Although CVD is increasingly common as people age, it is
not an inevitable consequence of the aging process. Atherosclerosis and other forms of CVD are almost non-
existent in some countries, even in elderly citizens. However, when these people migrate to the US and
consume the western diet and adopt a sedentary life style, their risk increases to match their US counterparts.
In addition, as developing countries gain affluence and convert from grain-based to high-fat, processed-food
diets, the incidence of CVD escalates. Since an entire population cannot change dietary habits, it has become
imperative for the population to have remedies to counter this disease.
In most instances, prescriptive drugs have considerable side-effects. Note that cholesterol "statin" drugs create
a deficiency of Co-enzyme Q10, a nutrient essential for heart health.
Ayurved Formulas offer a series of products to address these problems and bring together some of nature's
most potent herbs, which have been scientifically studied and formulated.
1.) Terminalia arjuna bark. This Ayurved herb has been conclusively proven to have cardiovascular activity.
Studies have shown that extracts of Terminalia arjuna produce sustained hypotension and slowed heart rate.
They have also been shown to increase the force of contraction of the heart.
2.) Coleus forskohlii. Detailed pharmacologic studies established that forskohlin lowered significantly high
blood pressure in different animal species, as well as man. In addition, it positively alters the force of heart
muscle contraction. The anti-hypertensive effects of forskohlin were attributed to the relaxation of the smooth
muscle in arteries.
3.) Crataegus oxycantha (Hawthorn). The fruits from this plant benefit the heart and act as coronary
vasodilators. Hawthorn is reputed to dissolve deposits in thickened and sclerotic arteries. Various clinical
studies have shown increased cardiac performance and output, decreased peripheral resistance, decreased
pulmonary arterial and capillary pressures, reduced blood pressure at rest and during exercise, and improved
4.) Withania somnifera. Also known as ashwagandha, it has been described as the most important medicinal
plant in India. This herb has been the focus of hundreds of clinical studies and is one of the most exhaustively
researched herbs. The anti-stress activity of the roots has been reported in multiple clinical studies.
Ashwagandha has been used as a treatment for the most debilitating diseases and is included for its cardio-
5.) Boerhaavia diffusa. The cardiovascular action of this herb has been clinically studied. The rationale for its
inclusion is due to its powerful diuretic activity.
6.) Piper longum. This fruit yields a molecule known as "piperine". Piperine has been clinically studied and
reported to improve the bioavailability of drugs. By the addition of this ingredient, the pharmacological
actions of other herbs are enhanced, leading to a better overall action.
