Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine
Rudraksha: Rudraksha are the dried seeds of the rudraksha tree. They benefit the heart both physically and spiritually. They are frequently used in meditation, similar to the rosary in Catholicism. It is believed that they "open the heart chakra."
Rudraksha can be used in various forms. They can be worn externally as a necklace of beads in front of the heart. You can also soak a rudraksha bead overnight in water and drink the water in the morning. Consuming rudraksha water is thought to reduce blood pressure and strengthen the heart.
Other Ayurvedic herbs used to support the cardiovascular system include:
