How Does it Work?
Hrudved is an Ayurvedic Medicine manufactured under FDA license to avoid heart attack in sufferers who have already undergone invasive remedies such as Bypass surgery, Angioplasty etc. This formula helps to prevent further re-clogging of arteries. Formulated based on the Tridosha principles of Ayurveda, Hrudved balances the Vata, Pitta and Kapha Doshas in the body and improves myocardial perfusion and functional stability. It is appropriate for sufferers of angina, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, cardiac insufficiency, exercise intolerance and more to use Hrudved.
Hrudved is an excellent complementary for EECP (Enhanced External counterpulsation) treatment. EECP treatment facilitates opening the collateral arteries and improve the blood supply but, does not dissolve the blockages. Hrudved is made with ingredients of purely plant origin. Hrudved does not have any ingredient which may go against the principles of certain religions.
Benefits of Hrudved
* Remove Plaque from Blocked Arteries,
* Improve Heart Sufficiency
* Regulate Cholesterol Levels
Coronary Heart Disease and Atherosclerosis
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries which supply oxygen-rich blood to the muscles of the heart. This build up of plaque happens over many years and cause the arteries to harden. The plaque is made of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. When there is plaque buildup, the arteries become narrower and harder resulting in Atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis can obstruct the normal flow of blood and can cause heart attack, stroke or even death.
In the United States, CHD is deemed as the number one cause of death for both men and women. Lifestyle changes, medicines, and medical procedures can help to prevent or treat CHD.
Angina Pectoris or chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart which in turn indicates underlying heart disease. Some people also feel tightness or pressure in the chest as a symptom.
You will have to rush to an Emergency Room if you have
1.Pain or discomfort worsens, and lasts longer than 20 minutes
2.Pain or discomfort along with weakness, and other signs like feeling sick to your stomach, sweating, or fainting
3.Unusual pain or discomfort in the chest
Hypercholesterolemia refers to the presence of high cholesterol in the blood. When there is too much cholesterol in the blood, it creates sticky deposits called plaque. These get deposited along the walls of the arteries causing obstruction of blood flow. This obstruction is a high risk factor for heart attack and stroke.
Sedentary lifestyle coupled with a high saturated fat diet is often the culprit behind high cholesterol levels.
The medical treatment of CHD is decided based up on how far the disease has progressed. In the initial stages, along with medications (vasodilators, beta blockers etc.) lifestyle changes are advised. When medications and lifestyle changes fail to control the progression of the disease interventional procedures such as angioplasty and stents or surgery is recommended.
Ayurveda suggests the use of certain herbs (Terminalia Arjuna, Emblica Officinalis, Withania Somnifera etc.), diet control, exercises like yoga, meditation and adequate sleep for conditions like CAD. Ayurveydic herbs help to lower cholesterol levels, reduce hypertension and blood sugar levels, rejuvenate the body and reduce stress.

Terminalia arjuna (Arjuna Ghana)- Arjuna induces improvement of cardiac muscle function and subsequently improves pumping activity of the heart. The Arjuna promotes effective cardiac functioning, and regulates blood pressure and tones the heart.
Carum roxburghianum (Ajmoda Ghana )- This is credited with stimulant and carminative properties and is prescribed as a sedative and tonic. This is prescribed as a decoction or as a liquid extract.

Punica granatum (Dadim Chhal)- Scientific research group tested pomegranate juice on both humans and laboratory mice which were genetically predisposed to develop heart disease. They found that pomegranate juice decreased LDL ("bad cholesterol") and increased HDL ("good cholesterol") by 20% in humans. The oxidation of LDL, which is believed by many researchers to be a major cause of heart disease, was reduced by up to 90%.
Vitis vinifera (Draksha Ghana)- Enhances capillary strength and vascular function which helps the heart and decreases PMS problems, bruising, edema from injury or trauma varicose veins, leg swelling and retinopathy. Enhanced immune resistance, increased peripheral circulation, improved vision, reduced adverse allergic and inflammatory response, reduction in skin aging and loss of elasticity.
Piper longum (Pimpli Ghana)- Inducing alterations in membrane dynamics and permeation characteristics along with induction in synthesis of proteins associated with cytoskeletal function resulting in an increase in the small intestine absorptive surface, thus assisting efficient permeation through the epithelial barrier.
Adhatoda vasika (Vasa Patra Ghana)-The active alkaloid vasicine and its auto oxidation product vasicinone have shown bronchodilator and antihistaminic effects. Uterine stimulant activity and moderate hypotensive activity of the alkaloids were reported. Thrombopoeitic activity of vasicine has been observed.
