  • Ginkgo biloba- improves the flow of blood throughout the body. It is also an antioxidant.

  • Alfalfa: Alfalfa leaves and sprouts help reduce the blood cholesterol levels and plaque deposits on artery walls.

  • Ginger- reduces cholesterol. It also reduces blood pressure and prevents blood clots.

  • Citrin - an extract from the plant Garcinia cambogia, inhibits the synthesis of fatty acids in the liver.

  • Guggul - This ayurvedic herb is shown to reduce cholesterol

  • Other herbs that are beneficial for cardiovascular disorders include barberry, black cohosh, butcher's broom, cayenne (capsicum), dandelion, ginseng, and valerian root.

Caution: Do not use barberry or black cohosh during pregnancy. Do not use ginseng if you have high blood pressure. Also avoid the herbs ephedra (ma huang) and licorice, as they cause a rise in blood pressure.


Diet Therapy for Angina

 The principal goals of nutritional therapy for angina are to improve the blood flow to the heart and the energy metabolism of the heart so that it requires less oxygen. The first step is to consume less saturated fat and cholesterol. Magnesium in your diet will improve the energy metabolism. Include plenty of leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, kale, mustard greens and turnip greens. These are good sources of magnesium.

  • Studies have shown that when people follow a diet that includes no animal sources except for skim milk, egg whites, and low fat yogurt, angina pain diminishes in a few weeks.

  • Eat a diet that is well balanced and contains plenty of fiber. Eat plenty of raw foods. For protein, eat broiled fish and skinless turkey and chicken, which are low in fat.

  • Include in the diet garlic, onions, and lecithin. They are shown to reduce serum cholesterol levels.

  • Add raw nuts (except pea nuts), olive oil, pink salmon, trout, tuna, Atlantic herring, and mackerel to your diet. These foods contain essential fatty acids.

  • Do not consume stimulants such as coffee and black tea that contain caffeine. Also avoid tobacco, alcohol, chocolate, sugar, butter, red meat, fats (especially hydrogenated oils and animal fats), fried foods, and processed and refined foods


 Vitamin/Nutrition Therapy for Angina

  • Take appropriate supplements of L-carnitine (500 mg twice daily, on an empty stomach. Take with 50 mg vitamin B6 and 100 mg vitamin C for better absorption.) And coenzyme Q10 (50-100 mg 3 times daily). L-Carnitine reduces fat and triglyceride levels in the blood, thus increasing the oxygen uptake and stress tolerance. Coenzyme Q10 increases the oxygenation of heart tissue. Studies have shown that it has prevented recurrences in individuals who had heart attacks.

  • Calcium 1,500 to 2,000 mg daily - important for the proper functioning of the cardiac muscles.

  • Magnesium - 750-1,000 mg daily.

  • Garlic - Lowers blood pressure and thins the blood.

  • Lecithin granules - 1 tbsp. 3 times daily - act as the fat emulsifier.


Caution: These remedies are not meant to be used as a treatment for heart attack. If you suspect a heart attack, administer a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in water or cayenne pepper sauce and seek emergency medical treatment immediately.  A teaspoon or more of cayenne pepper will normally stop a heart attack in less than a minute.
