Multiple strengthening of the cardiovascular system
Our cardiac remedy
The heart (Latin cor, cordis) and the pulse (as an expression of the heart’s activity) have always been the focus of particular interest, as the symbolic core of our physical vitality. As a branch of medical science, on the other hand, cardiology is still a relatively young discipline.
The famous advances that have been made in this field of medical technology – like the invention of the electrocardiograph (ECG, 1903) and the cardiac catheter (1929) or the first heart transplants (1967) – can easily blind us to the fact that in most cases nowadays cardiac treatment is based on drugs. The great majority of patients receiving treatment today are suffering from coronary heart disease (CHD), so that the detection, treatment and aftercare of angina pectoris, cardiac infarctions and infarction-related weakness of the heart muscle have become the chief field of activity for most cardiologists.
Among medicinal plants that have an effect on the heart, Digitalis or foxglove can be seen as a classic – its effects were described as long ago as 1785. The use of Digitalis does however carry the risk of damage to the cardiac muscle cells, which is why Cesra struck out on a new path in developing its own cardiac remedy – and found what it was looking for in the properties of the hawthorn. So as well as being an effective remedy, Chronocard® N can also serve as an example of Cesra’s independence and sense of responsibility in the development of its medicaments.
