The Benefits and Effects of Carditone

What is Carditone?

Carditone is known to be from Rauwolfia, a plant which is known to have been used traditionally to help maintain blood pressure levels. It’s believed to have calming properties with other minerals and herbs. One of the ingredients includes Indian coral powder, which is a good source of calcium and magnesium. 

Other ingredients include Rauwolfia serpentina, Tribulus Terrestris, Arjuna, Convolvulus pluricaulis, and magnesium in rose powder. It’s an herbal product that is made to lower blood pressure, providing a calm feeling and slow pulse. It has been used in India and the East for many years. These herbs can increase product effectiveness and reduce side effects.

Sadly, when there was a wrong combination of Rauwolfia, it was dropped, and new synthetic antihypertensive drugs were adopted. Over many years, there have been new drugs selected for high blood pressure. They are designed to improve the shortcomings of the latter one, and hence, became more expensive.

What is the difference between Rauwolfia and Reserpine?

The plant name is Rauwolfia while the name of the active ingredient in the plant is Reserpine. Reserpine is known for its soothing effect felt on the excitatory center in the brain, which helps reduce blood pressure. The American Pharmaceutical is known to be suppliers of rauwolfia root and Reserpine. The 0.1-milligram dose of Reserpine is equivalent to 50 milligrams of rauwolfia root. The double the reserpine dose, the same it is to Rauwolfia. The daily dose recommended is 0.05 milligrams to 0.25 milligrams. Rauwolfia stays in the blood system for some days, and its effects are experienced for a couple of weeks. Rauwolfia and Reserpine need to be taken once daily or as prescribed by a physician.

What are the effects of taking Carditone in high doses?

A study conducted concluded that a high dose of Carditone causes depression. Hence, more studies were conducted, and it was proved that with proper dosage of carditone, depression is never caused. With an appropriate dosage, there was no evidence of ulcers as well. 1.5% of patients reported upset stomachs from taking carditone in comparison with 7.7 % of the patients who consumed metoprolol as a beta-blocker.

Another research was carried out earlier; it showed that people are less likely to suffer from peptic ulcers with Carditone as compared to consuming other drugs. 

Unfortunately, a report from a study conducted indicated that there was a link between carditone and breast cancer. The article was titled “Reserpine and Breast Cancer.” The Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Program conducted this study. Over four years, more studies were carried out; it showed that carditone did not cause breast cancer.
