Clinical Uses for Kardovite - Part 2

by John Stan | Aug 29, 2013

In our summer Newsletter we looked at the first 4 of the 8 primary clinical uses for Kardovite. Now more than ever, taking care of ours and our patients' hearts is of utmost importance. The Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation estimates that every 7 minutes a person in Canada dies from heart disease or stroke. Using this powerful, yet natural (click here to review the ingredients), heart tonic is just one way that we can take steps to improve heart health, and keep the ol' ticker ticking.

In this article let's take a look at the remaining 4 ways you can use Kardovite in your clinic:

Patients who Smoke
  • Garlic's natural antioxidants can defend against free radicals produced after exposure to cigarette smoke, pollution, UV rays and radiation.

  • An antibacterial agent, cayenne pepper may be a factor in reducing risks of lung cancer. Tobacco contains a substance known by the abbreviation NNK that is an important factor in the promotion of lung cancer in smokers. Animal studies have shown that the capsaicin in cayenne peppers stops the activation of NNK and inhibits the tobacco-induced formation of lung tumors.
  • Due to its calmative effect, valerian can be the herb of choice during smoking cessation to deal with issues of insomnia, restlessness and anxiety.

Overweight or Physically Inactive Patients
  • Garlic contains the compound Allicin which has anti-bacterial effects and helps reduce unhealthy fats and cholesterol.
  • Cayenne can speed up metabolism by as much as 25 percent. The ingredient responsible for this benefit is capsaicin, which is considered a thermo-genic chemical.
  • Bilberry fruit contains tannins that reduce intestinal inflammation, and astringent properties that constrict and tighten tissues.

Patients Under Emotional Stress
  • Hawthorn has a positive inotropic effect on the heart similar to cardiac glycosides while reducing arrhythmia. This translates into a safe herb to use to prevent palpitations due to stress.
  • Garlic serves as a tonic, that is, it works to reduce fatigue and other symptoms of stress in the body.
  • Cayenne pepper produces endorphins that may help raise mood.
  • Valerian reduces negative conditions associated with anxiety and psychological stress and to aid in the health of the circulatory system.

Athletic Patients
  • The principle active constituents of Hawthorn, procyanidins and flavonoids, cause an increase in coronary blood flow due to dilatory effects, resulting in an improvement of myocardial blood flow.  Hawthorn preparations act on the myocardium by increasing force of contraction and lengthening the refractory period, increasing coronary blood flow and cardiac output, and reducing oxygen consumption.
  • Compounds in garlic inhibit key enzymes that generate inflammation in your body. By reducing inflammation, garlic may reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Athletes may be most interested in cayenne’s potential for relieving musculoskeletal pain.
