This volume provides readers about the wealth of information on the use of herbal medicines in cardiovascular disorders that has been used by mankind since time immemorial and that has then been gradually integrated into the indigenous systems of medicine practiced in different regions of the world,

The book is a valuable resource for pharmaceutical scientists and postgraduate students seeking updated and critically important information in natural product chemistry and pharmacology.

The contents of the Volume 1 represent exciting recent researches on cardiovascular benefits of the European olive and bottle gourd, cardiovascular benefits of Naoxintong, herbal and micronutrient supplements for cardiovascular disease patients, herbal remedies for atherosclerosis, and cardio-protective alkaloids.
