Hi, Everyone.....

I did some research on this "tonic", and not only has it NOT been approved by the FDA (or any other organization in the USA), this herbal "tonic" has NOT proven that it can do what it SAYS it can do! I did my research on WebMD, the Johns Hopkins Medical Center, the FDA, the AMA, the NE Journal of Medicine, Mass. General Hospital Cardiac Research Center, several other major cardiac hospital sites in the USA, and a few other sources (including some research on the value of herbal supplements and tonics from licensed herbalists in the USA). Please be very careful what you spend your money on.....the ONLY good source for ALL advice on your cardiac problems is your CARDIOLOGIST!!!!! Ask him/her for information on ANY herbal tonic or supplement you're thinking of buying and using!

Thanks for that valuable information, Linda.

We should all remember to also advise your cardiologist of ALL drugs, herbs or supplements you're taking. Even vitamins!
