It is estimated that over 56 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although CVD is increasingly common as people age, it is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Cardana Caps is an Ayurvedic 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. It can promote a healthy heart rate, and reduces the effects of stress on the heart.

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 a powerful vasodilator that reduces blood pressure, and 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, helping to reduce blood pressure. Withania somnifera, known as ashwagandha, supports cardiovascular health by reducing the effects of stress, which include a rapid pulse and increased blood pressure.

Those looking to support a healthy blood pressure and improve heart function will benefit from this Ayurvedic heart formula. Type A personalities who are prone to heart and blood pressure problems will particularly find Cardana Caps helpful.

Cardiovascular effects

Study #1:

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, 58 males with chronic stable angina were given either 500 mg of Terminalia arjuna every eight hours, 40 mg isosorbide mononitrate daily, or placebo for one week each with a three-day washout period. Treadmill exercise was evaluated at the end of each therapy. Arjuna treatment was associated with significantly decreased angina frequency and the need for isosorbide dinitrate use. Arjuna treatment was also associated with significantly improved performance on the treadmill test: significant increase in total duration of exercise and significantly decreased time to recovery. These findings were similar in the isosorbide mononitrate group, but not with placebo.

Study #2:

In a placebo-controlled trial, 116 patients with stable coronary artery disease were randomized to either 500 mg T. arjuna twice daily, or a placebo, in addition to their standard medications. After three months of treatment, arjuna therapy significantly down-regulated triglycerides, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol and other inflammatory markers compared to placebo.

Study #3:

In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 40 patients with ischemic mitral regurgitation after an acute myocardial infarction were given either 500mg of T. arjuna three times daily or placebo in addition to their anti-ischemic medication for three months. After the treatment period patients in the arjuna group had a significant decrease in mitral regurgitation and frequency of angina.

Cholesterol management effects

Study #1:

In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 105 patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) were given either 400IU vitamin E, 500mg T. arjuna bark powder or placebo daily for 30 days. The group given arjuna had significant reductions in total cholesterol (average of -9.7%) and LDL cholesterol (average -15.8%). Lipid peroxide levels were significantly lower in both the vitamin E and the arjuna groups after treatment. No changes in cholesterol levels or triglycerides were seen in the placebo group.

Study #2:

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study by Kapoor et al., 100 patients with coronary artery disease given 500mg arjuna twice daily in addition to conventional therapy had significant decreases in hyperlipidemia and in multiple inflammatory cytokines including IL-6 and TNF-alpha.

Additionally, in a study by Khalil of 30 patients with coronary artery disease, 500mg of arjuna combined with conventional therapy led to a 16% reduction in LDL, a 15% decrease in total cholesterol and 11% decrease in triglycerides.
