Better But With Side Effects

Art,

I have been taking Carditone for my high blood pressure since last 3 weeks. Now my blood pressure is in the normal range because of Carditone.

The only major side effect I have is nasal congestion because of Carditone. I read one of the ingredient in Carditone causes Nasal Congestion.

Anyone else noticed the side effect?

Thank you.

Tom

Peter,

It has been my experience that I can take Carditone anytime, but I believe the company suggests evening dosing because one or two of the ingredients are known to help with sleeplessness, so it may help some people get to sleep, but on the other hand, if a person is sensitive to these ingredients and it really helps them sleep, they may not want to take it in the morning as it may make them feel sleepy.

For me, I have never experienced sleepiness from taking it.

Regarding which pill might be causing diarrhea, this is a known side effect of berberine and I would suspect it before Carditone. That is why I suggested taking it after eating, to see if that would help or resolve the issue. In some cases, people have had success with building the dose up slowly because sometimes the body can adjust to berberine when applied gradually. I would try taking it after the meal as the simplest remedy especially since the Carditone was already working for her with no problem.

If in the end, your wife does not tolerate berberine even when taken after food, I can make another suggestion, but berberine is very good with T2DM so give it a try after food. You can also try reducing the dose. What brand are you using?

Did you get my other reply about the use of magnesium for T2DM?

Art,

It never was my intention to insult you, If that is how my question came across I apologize. It was an honest question tended to dispel any misgivings that a reasonable person may ask before ordering the supplement you are recommending. Thank you for the clarification.

Art,

My wife is on diuretic, allowing 2 hours or longer after that before Carditone (it works), what is your opinion?

There was one review on amazon that had issue.

My wife had to stop Berberine(it works) because of diarrhea, I do not know which pill is the cause?

Trying to test it out now. Always value your opinion. I have read many years of your postings and Ted also. I prefer your recommend brands and beside no one forcing us to buy the brand. Thanks Thanks

To further update this thread about Carditone, my friend Dave who was also testing Carditone with myself and another friend, has found that even going to one caplet every third night was still lowering his blood pressure dangerously low (107/65, 105/61, 98/64, & 97/57 and I had asked if he thought it might be safer to only take one caplet once a week or every seventh day to allow his blood pressure to get back up into a safer range and then if it got too high try every 6th day. He said that was what he was planning to do immediately.

Dave mentioned to me recently that with the switch to taking one caplet every seventh night had allowed his blood pressure to get back to the 120~125/65~76 area, a much safer range to be in than the dangerously low level where he had gotten to at one caplet every third night.

Dave told me that he would update me if he needs to increase his dose to one caplet every sixth night.

Interestingly, the other friend who started testing Carditone with us, Barbara, is still at one caplet per night and that is keeping her blood pressure around 120~125 / 80~85 area.

So from this limited experience of the three of us, it is clearly very important to monitor your blood pressure very frequently for at least the first 6 months to a year if you plan to test Carditone.

Robert,

When I first read your post, my first thought was, that was kind of an insulting thing for you to say to me, but after I thought about it for a moment, I could understand how it would be easy for someone who doesn't know me to think that I was just acting as a shill for this supplement manufacturer.

To be clear, I am not acting as a shill for the manufacturer of Carditone or any other supplement I recommend. If you look at my hundreds of posts on EC, that should become readily apparent. I do recommend supplements frequently, but I try to avoid naming specific brands unless it is a product such as Carditone as they are the only manufacturer of this specific product, so I have to name the specific product so people will be able to find and buy it.

Another example is that I have written many articles about melatonin and different health issues, but I can't ever remember naming a specific brand to buy unless someone specifically asked me about a specific brand of melatonin.

More recently I have written about Grape Seed Proanthocyanidin Extract and did name a specific product only after an EC member asked what specific product my friend had used to significantly reduce her asthma symptoms.

As regards me to linking to Amazon, I do that because they generally carry a larger selection of specific supplements and it is easier and quicker for me to just link to it. My preference would be to use other suppliers than Amazon because in my experience some supplement suppliers often offer significant discounts on their products whereas in my experience, Amazon does not or rarely does.

I hope that answers your question and if you decide to test Carditone, it would be very helpful for the EC community if you come back and share your experience with the product. I also highly recommend that you read the whole thread as opposed to just the original post because there is useful information in the replies.

A word of caution regarding Carditone, you should absolutely check your blood pressure regularly for the first year of use because I have found that Carditone has a cumulative effect on me and another friend where it was taking my blood pressure to low which can be very dangerous. This has allowed me over a period of months to lower my dose so that now I only need to take one caplet every third night instead of the manufacturer recommended one caplet every night and this keeps my blood pressure just below or at 120/80.

Good luck and I look forward to your update if you decide to test Carditone.

Interestingly, with my recent dose reduction of Carditone to one caplet every third night, I received a text message from my friend Dave who started Carditone around the same time and also got very good results. Dave had also found he was able to get by with just one caplet of Carditone every third night, but in his recent text message he told me that since his blood pressure is continuing to decline, he has now (8/1/22) decided to go to one caplet every fourth night!

He mentioned some recent blood pressure readings at 98/64, 107/65, 95/57 and 105/61. He further stated that the highest Systolic reading he got in July 2022 was 122 and the lowest was 61. I am going to have a longer discussion with Dave, but these readings are so low, I am going to suggest he try once a week dosing if his numbers do not significantly increase with the dose reduction to every fourth night.

I am grateful for this feed back from Dave as well as the fact that he monitors his blood pressure daily.

My take away from this is that it is imperative to test your blood pressure very regularly if you are using or testing Carditone for blood pressure control!

After months of use of Carditone for blood pressure control, I felt it was time to update due to a new development.

I started at the recommended dose of one herbal caplet per night and found Carditone very effective at controlling my blood pressure "in range", but after a month or more, it became apparent that Carditone was working too good, and I had to start taking one caplet every other night in order to not go too low on my pressure reading. This had been working very well for months, but two or three times, I forgot to take my every other night caplet. When I checked my blood pressure, it seemed fine.

Based on those experiences, I decided to try taking one Carditone caplet every third evening. I've been at this new dosing schedule for about 3 weeks now and I am still getting very good readings. I just took my blood pressure about 5 minutes ago, which was116/74 with a pulse rate of 74. On July 20, 2022, when I was already on one caplet every third night, my reading at 11:04 pm was 117/78 with a pulse rate of 67.

The main point being is that these are very good readings for me at a dose of just one caplet every third evening of Carditone. So at least for me, Carditone has seemed to have had a cumulative effect that seems to be lasting.

Carditone is not an inexpensive supplement, but with the need to only take one caplet every third night in my case, it is rather inexpensive for me now, but most importantly, it is much more effective that max dose of Amlodipine was for me taking it once per day. With Amlodipine I was never able to achieve these very good readings.

Another point I have noticed is that when I was on Amlodipine, taking a reading at 11:00 pm or later was almost always likely to give a very high blood pressure reading, but that is no longer the case! I always get good reading now at any time of the day or night.

My take away from this about Carditone is that if you are considering testing it, I highly recommend that you monitor your blood pressure regularly to make sure it is not dropping too low and if it is getting on the low side, definitely consider reducing your dose rate. Carditone allowed me to completely discontinue the max dose Amlodipine that my doctor had me on and I get good in range readings all the time now.

Russ,

I forgot to mention, all three of us stopped are prescription blood pressure medications in order to start using Carditone by itself , but one gentleman who wrote in said he had uncontrolled blood pressure while using 3 blood pressure medications simultaneously and when he added Carditone to the three, it brought his blood pressure into the normal range.

If your diastolic and systolic readings are normal, the following article should be of interest to you :

Russ,

There is very little scientific information available about the herbal combination that is Carditone regarding ischemia. I think it may be too strong for you, Russ. There are studies on the individual herbal ingredients and apparently these studies are how they arrived at this particular formulation, which in my friend's and my case, is more potent than the respective blood pressure medications we were using. My friend who's blood pressure was uncontrolled on Lisinopril has had to go to every third day dosing while I was uncontrolled on Amlodipine max dose and have recently switched from every other day dosing to every third day dosing also.

I mention in this thread that low blood pressure can be as dangerous as high blood pressure. This herbal supplement is quite effective at lowering high blood pressure in my experience and my other two friends who are using it. One friend requires the label recommended dose of one pill per night to stay in the normal range. The other friend found it so effective that they take it every third day and that dose maintains their blood pressure below 120/80.

Myself, I found that shortly after starting on Carditone I only needed to take one pill every other night, but more recently checked my pressure after missing a dose and found it to be 107/74/74 pulse. So I have just last week switched to one pill every third day and will report back on EC how this new dose works out for me. For me, it seems to have a slow cumulative and lasting effect causing me to reduce my dose twice now. I am not complaining, but I highly recommend that people testing Carditone, monitor their blood pressure regularly to be certain that it has not declined to a dangerously low level such as yours.

For Art Solbrig,

Have you discovered any evidence of ischemia while using Carditone?

I am a very healthy 74 YO male. I work out regularly and fast and watch my weight. 5'7" tall and 155#.

I am on 10mg lisinopril for mild hypertension. This is my only prescription med. The Lisinopril was not doing the job, so I added 1 tab of Carditone in may of this year which brought my pressure down to 106-137 over 60-80 on average.

The problem is with my heart rate. Historically my resting heart rate was in the 50's and 60's with the occasional dip into the 40's. After I started taking the carditone my resting HR is in the Low to mid 40's most of the time.

At this time, I am discontinuing all supplements except a daily vitamin and the Lisinopril.

Paul,

I noticed that the effect of Carditone increased through the first two bottles which allowed me to eventually go to every other day dosing. My friend Dave is going with every third day dosing and is well controlled while my friend Barbara is still at once a day dosing. So everyone seems to react differently to Carditone, but overall it has been effective for us.

You already have the bottle so you may as well finish it to see if it works out well for you or not. The bottle will last two months, so you have about 5 weeks before you finish the bottle.

I should also mention that there was a third person on EC who reported that Carditone could not replace the three prescription blood pressure medications he was taking that were not fully controlling his blood pressure, but when he added Carditone to his 3 meds, his blood pressure came down. I did try beet root powder, but it was not as effective as Carditone for me, as my blood pressure was still in the high range with the beet root powder.

I read the part about blood pressure and bought Carditone. I have taken 25 tablets so far and still have to take beet powder twice a day to keep pressure in the 125 range. If no beets and just Carditone, my bp is 140-160 so the product isn't helping as advertised. I will take the rest of the bottle and if things get to normal, will try again. If not no more sales from me.

Lisinopril almost killed me. It took me 8 months to "recover." If there is any way to avoid taking it, I'd run as fast as possible in that direction! :)

I just wanted to do a current (5/9/2022) update on our Carditone review for high blood pressure.

I talked with Dave and he did reduce his dose to one pill every other day instead of the recommended one pill per day and has been doing that for 3 weeks now and he has been keeping track of the results with daily monitoring of his blood pressure which he is keeping a log of. He said that his average blood pressure readings are staying below 120/80 with the reduced dose.

Barbara told me that after her very good initial results she stopped checking her blood pressure, but she texted me today and said that she finally checked her blood pressure today and it was 124/70 and she said she was very happy with the great improvement! She remains at 1 pill per day.

As to myself, my pressure readings continued to decline so I also decided to go to one pill every other day of Carditone, as Dave did. On the occasions when I missed a dose, I did not notice a rise in my blood pressure and that helped convince me to try one pill every other day. The results have been amazing with my average blood pressure reading maintaining below 120/80, similarly to Dave's results. Here is a list of my past week of readings plus today's reading :

1. 115/75

2. 102/68

3. 110/70

4. 105/70

5. 114/77

6. 121/75

7. 115/79

8. 110/68

These are better blood pressure readings than I was getting 30 years ago! None of us have noticed any side effects from taking Carditone. Overall, all three of us are very happy with the results and will definitely continue taking Carditone indefinitely!

Rod,

Thank you for the update on your use of Carditone and I am glad it is allowing you to reach normal blood pressure readings which your two blood pressure meds were not able to do!

I have found that continued use of Carditone works better for me than the maximum dose of Amlodipine that my doctor had me on which never got my blood pressure into the normal range. It also outperformed Beet Root Powder that I tested. I also have not noticed any side effects from Carditone either.

Please keep an eye on your blood pressure regularly to make sure it does not go too low.

I stopped the Carditone and started my meds and then a few days later I started taking the Carditone along with my meds. I take my blood pressure meds early in the morning and the Carditone at 8pm. My blood pressure was 120/75 this morning, so I think that the Carditone is assisting in my blood pressure. Yesterday my blood pressure was 124/74 and I know that my blood pressure hasn't been this low for a long time.

Hi Barbara,

The manufacturer of Carditone advertises that it helps maintains blood pressure that is already in a normal range, but if your blood pressure is already within a normal range why do you need it? I think they do this because they can not make medical claims for a supplement.

I can only describe what it did for my friends and myself in the article I wrote about our experience with Carditone. One person reported it didn't work for them and two people have reported that it worked for them. So in terms of working for the purpose of lowering blood pressure significantly, there are only 5 people on Earth Clinic who have made that claim.

Regarding Amlodipine, I think they may have a 2 1/2 mg version which may prove less problematic than the 5 mg version.

Carditone recommends that you take it at night because two of the herbs in it (Convolvulus pluricaulis and rose powder) are said to have calming effects, which may be useful for your new found insomnia.

What I would be concerned with in your case is that you state that you have arrhythmia and I have no idea if Carditone would have any impact on that. I would suggest letting your doctor know about the problems that Amlodipine is causing you and ask if it would be okay to try over the counter Carditone for a week or two to see if it will be more compatible with your system than the Amlodipine was.

Thank you, Art, for your article on the benefits of Carditone. I am a senior who has never been on any prescription drugs. However, recently, due to stress, my BP has been inconsistent with highs of 189/100 (and chest pains) and lows under 120/80. My doctor prescribed Amlodipine 5 mg. 2 weeks ago and for the first week my BP stabilized in the healthy range and my morning lightheadedness was gone. Then halfway through my second week, I became unable to sleep at night no matter what natural sleep aids I took. Last night my heart was pounding and racing so bad I thought I was dying. To antidote, I drank water with vitamin C all night. I will no longer take the Amlodipine but am now searching for a natural way to control my BP such as high-dose magnesium.

When I read your review of Carditone I wondered if this would help with my BP, insomnia, and arrhythmia. Your reply would be so appreciated. Thank you.

I bought Carditone by the brand Ayush Herbs. My blood pressure has been out of control for weeks even taking 3 prescription meds Enalapril 10 mg Labetalol 200 mg and Hydralazine 100 mg my blood pressure has been around the 200/100 range for a few weeks even taking beetroot powder & L-Arginine.

On the 25th of April 2022, I started taking Carditone, 1 pill the first day. No difference. But on the second day, it dropped to 170/78 pulse 71 and this was in the morning at 9:38 I took the Carditone around 6 am I can't wait to see what it's like in the morning. Great stuff. I believe I bought mine on eBay.

Rod P.,

I am not a doctor so I can not advise on dosing, I can only describe my and my friends' experience with using Carditone, but I don't think it would be good at all to just add it to your current regimen. That could be dangerous as it may lower your blood pressure too low!

Perhaps you can ask one of your doctors if it would be okay to go off your blood pressure meds for two weeks to test Carditone to see if it will help you as it will be easier to take one pill than two and you are also hoping to avoid any potential side effects from the Amlodipine and Lisinopril, of which there are quite a few as listed at these two links:

I take 40 mg of Lisinopril and 2.5 mg of Amlodipine Besylate for high blood pressure. How does one tell his VA doctor about Carditone? Do I stop taking my medications when I start taking Carditone? I had a TBI while serving in the Air Force and was in a coma for 16 days. Most VA doctors frown on taking a supplement for high blood pressure and I'm not sure on how to go about changing to Carditone.

Prior to going on Amlodipine, I was on beetroot powder and it did lower my blood pressure, but not as effectively as Carditone and that is why I tried the Amlodipine that my doctor prescribed and ultimately Carditone to finally find something that normalized my blood pressure.

Do NOT mix herbal BP lowering products with prescription bp drugs.

You will stand the risk of lowering your BP below 105 which is as dangerous as an extreme high reading. STROKE zone below 105. If anything back off your prescription bp meds.

with an every other day dose as you ease into a daily all natural routine.

1/2 tsp beetroot powder in a 8oz glass of water sweetened to taste works within 30 minutes to lower bp by several points. If not increase the dose to 3/4 teaspoon or even to a flat to full teaspoon. Start small and figure it out. It works! 100% pure beet root powder "Amazon"

One dose a day works for 24 hours for most people. If you are prone to stones drink an extra glass of pure water about an hour after taking the beet root juice. If needed drink a glass of this miracle juice 2 x a day. You will get off your prescription meds. Beet root powder is also a GREAT antioxidant.

Fast from 10pm-10am or even to noon 7 days per week if possible.

Brisk Walk 20-30 minutes daily without stopping if possible.
