Carditone Information

Question:
Does Carditone work to lower blood pressure?

Answer:
Carditone, promoted to "maintain blood pressure" and "support heart function" contains magnesium and eight ayurvedic herbal extracts. However, there are no well-designed clinical studies with this combination of ingredients and there is only evidence that two of the ingredients may help to lower blood pressure. In addition, the label of this product fails to list the plant parts (e.g., root, flower, leaf, etc.) from which the herbal extracts are derived — a violation of FDA labeling requirements, as well as not indicating the strength of any of the extracts. This creates a serious problem for the consumer since different parts of the same plant can have different chemical properties and clinical activity and extracts can vary widely in strength. You should also be aware of potential risks with some of the listed ingredients. See the full answer >>
