HeartBeat® - Keeping Yourself in Tune with Our Top Cardiovascular Tonic


Comprised of nine expertly chosen healing plants, featuring hawthorn and garlic, this formula has been a mainstay of our repertoire of herbal combinations for over 20 years.

The hawthorn in this formula reduces what’s called peripheral vascular resistance. In this way it helps the blood flow to the heart more freely, keeping it supplied with oxygen and beating regularly.

Meanwhile, garlic is a highly significant culinary and medicinal herb, its many antioxidant benefits verified by thousands of years of use. Scientific research indicates that garlic has remarkable cardiovascular action. Among other things, it has been shown in fact to reduce bad cholesterol.
