Dr. Daniel’s Cardusa.

All the allopathic medicines  used for BP and heart problems contain chemicals which will remove/lessen the plaque, decrease oxidized LDL cholesterol (by addition of antioxidants) and thin the blood. Cardusa contains herbal drugs which are clinically proved to have all these properties. The plants used in Cardusa and their proven clinical properties are the following.

  1. Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna W.& A.). Arjuna bark is the most acclaimed drug for treating disorders of heart. It contains a number of triterpenoids such as arjunic acid and arjunolic acid. It is found to be effective in treating congestive cardiac  failure  and chronic stable angina (Chest pain). It is also found to inhibit atherosclerotic lesions (plaques) in arteries and veins. It reduces hypertension, and is found to protect heart from myocardial ischemic injury (damage to heart muscle by restricted flow of blood). Arjuna  reduces cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides in a span of 50-60 days to 50% and improves HDL content. The antioxidant phenols in Arjuna exhibit a blood thinning effect similar to aspirin. It helps the body in preventing cancer also.
  1. Garlic (Allium sativum Linn.). Garlic is conventionally used for reducing cholesterol,  LDL, triglycerides and thus   inhibits  atherosclerotic plaques. Garlic contains at least 33 sulphur compounds like allin, allicin, ajoene etc. Ajoene has the best known anti-thrombosis and cholesterol lowering qualities. Garlic reduces vascular calcification due to high cholesterol levels and dilates blood vessels. 
  1. Sunthi (Zingiber officinale Ros.) Several of ginger constituents exhibit anti-platelet activity similar to aspirin and thus recommended as therapeutic agents for coronary artery disease(angina) and to prevent stroke. It reduces arthrosclerotic lesions and lipid peroxidation while enhancing fibrinolytic activity. Ginger extracts are found to reduce cholesterol, LDL, VLDL and phospholipids and improve HDL. 
  1. Mitho limdo (Murraya koenigii Spreng). Curry leaves containing an aromatic oil and alkaloids (both carbazole and triterpenoid) like koenigin, girinimbin, iso-mahanimbin, are found to exhibit cholesterol lowering effect like the standard cholesterol reducing agent, simvastatin. It also reduces lipid peroxidation (thus lower lipid levels) and lowers anticholinesterase in brain, enhancing memory.
  1. Manjishta (Rubia cordifolia Linn.). This drug is one of the best blood purifiers. With its anthra- and naphthoquinones (rubiadin, mollugin) and cyclic hexapeptides (RA-VII) manjishta is a  calcium channel blocker ( reducing blood pressure and hypertension), anti-platelet (reduces blockage of arteries) and antihyperlipidemic in nature. It is also one of the richest sources of antioxidants. It eliminates toxins in blood and improves microcirculation in all parts of body especially brain. Its vasodilating property  widens the lumen of blood vessels and decrease blood pressure and hypertension.
  1. Vijaysar (Pterocarpus marsupium Roxb.). This plant is rich in flavonoids such as  liquiritigenin and pterosupin which are found to lower serum cholesterol, LDL and arthrosclerosis significantly.
Blood pressure and heart problems

Cardiovascular problems (heart diseases) include all the  difficulties encountered in the structure and functioning of heart and the blood vessels like arteries, capillaries, and veins. Most of the problems are due to the formation of blocks (sticky deposits – plaques) developing  in main arteries/veins or in the arteries that carry blood to your head, organs, and limbs. Plaques are waxy materials consisting of cholesterol containing low density lipoproteins (LDL),  fat (triglycerides),  calcium, fibrous tissue, and other substances in the blood. LDL are the carriers of cholesterol. Free radicals oxidize the LDL and it is this oxidized LDL which drops the cholesterol at different places in arteries which form a major part of the plaque. When plaque builds up in the body’s arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. In due course,  plaques get hardened and narrow the arteries. In addition blood clots due to the agglutination of RBC takes place making the blood thicker. Due to both these processes, the pressure of the circulating blood stream on the arterial walls increases and the flow rate of blood gets slower limiting the flow of oxygen-rich blood to various parts of the body. This causes higher blood pressure.

When the plaques are large enough to block the lumen of blood vessels or when they rupture in coronary arteries (which that supply blood to the heart) blood stops flowing properly to part of the heart and the heart muscle is injured due to not enough oxygen. This is the Heart attack (Myocardial infarction) which leads to  stopping of  normal circulation of the blood due to failure of the heart to contract effectively resulting in Cardiac arrest. When the blood vessels inside the brain get blocked by plaques Cerebrovascular (brain vascular) diseases such as stroke, stenosis, narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the brain; aneurysms, bulges in brain arteries; and cerebral hemorrhage and rupture of brain blood vessels occur. Blocks also are formed in arteries that carry blood from heart to head, arms, kidneys, and stomach. It is now evident that the main risk factors for BP and heart problems are the plaques and the clotting of the blood in the blood vessels.  

The therapeutic properties of Cardusa are summarized below
  1. It helps to reduce blockage of blood vessels by atherosclerotic plaques in patients having detected blockage of blood vessels,
  2. It reduces cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides and increase HDL,
  3. The antioxidant phenols help to thin blood,
  4. It strengthens heart muscles and capillary walls,
  5. It reduces blood pressure and hypertension and
  6. It helps in dilating the blood vessels and to purify blood..
