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.

You should also be aware of potential risks with some of the listed ingredients. See the full answer >>
