What Is It?
Cardana Caps is an Ayurvedic-based herbal formula used to support the health of the heart and vascular system, promoting normal blood pressure and healthy blood flow to the heart muscle.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Cardana Caps contains five of the most powerful herbs used to support the cardiovascular system and a healthy blood pressure. Terminalia arjuna reduces blood pressure and heart rate and increases the strength of the heart's contractions. Coleus forskohlii is also a powerful vasodilator, which explains its ability to reduce blood pressure, and it improves the efficiency of the heart's contractions. Crataegus laevigata (also known as hawthorn), increases the force of cardiac contractions, improves blood flow, reduces the oxygen needs of the cardiac muscle, and is an anti-hypertensive and anti-arrhythmic agent. Boerhaavia diffusa is a diuretic. Withania somnifera, known as ashwagandha, helps reduce the effects of stress, which include a rapid pulse and increased blood pressure.
Who Should Take It?
Those looking to support a healthy blood pressure and improve heart function will benefit from this Ayurvedic-based heart formula. Type A personalities who are prone to heart and blood pressure problems will also find Cardana Caps helpful.
Take 1-2 capsules twice daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Use for a minimum of 2 months to see beneficial effects.
