Cardimap is a judicious combination of herbs which have been recommended in the Ayurvedic system of medicine for reducing hypertension, anxiety, tension, insomnia, significantly without in any way affecting the day to day cycle of the patient.
It contains the well knows anti-hypertension/anxiolytic drugs like:
- Sarpagandha (Rauwolfia serpentine)
- Jatamansi (Nardostachys jatamansi)
- Shankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricautis)
- Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri)
- Pippali (piper longum).
Sarpagandha in Ayurveda has been considered a powerful vata shamak (vata pacifying) drug. In high blood pressure without atheromatous changes in the vessels, this drug has been found very satisfactory.
Jatamansi further enhances the anti hypertensive and anxiolytic actions of Sarpagandha. The essential oils contained in it have been found to cause pronounced hypotensive activity for several hours. It is also effective in cardiac arrythmias.
Shankhapushpi is a Medhya Rasayan and is claimed to be nutritive for brain, relaxant and anticonvulsive. It brings down levels of anxiety quantitatively besides subjective relief in anxiety neurosis.
Brahmi also is categorized as a Medhya Rasayan and in clinical studies has been found to be cardiotonic, sedative and neuromuscular blocking agent. On analysis of behaviour under Brahmi it was observed that it offers mild tranquillizing and reserpine potentiator actions.
Pippali promotes digestive functions and also possesses hepatoprotective properties. Its incorporation in the formulation of Cardimap ensures better assimilation of other ingredients.
Thus Cardimap lowers hypertension through synergistic effects of Sarpagandha and Jatamasi: Medhya Rasayans Shankhpushpi and Brahmi provide adequate adaptogenesis by their anti-stress properties and pippali in addition to being hepatoprotective helps in better assimilation of other primary ingredients.
