Five all-natural, individually packaged heart health herbs in one handy heart health kit. What’s not to love?
We wanted to create a heart health kit that contained the world’s world’s most widely studied and promising heart health supplements. After years of research, we launched our CardiAce Heart Health Kits in 2022.
CardiAce Heart Health Kits contain five individual packets of heart health herbs: Astragalus (Huang Qi), Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna), Cistanche, Angelica (Aralia elata), and Dan Shen (Salvia miltiorrhiza).
Kits Contain Astragalus, the Star Healer
From the start, we knew we were going to include Astragalus extract in the kits. It’s a powerhouse. It has a science-based, global reputation for providing immune health support and provides support for health issues related to viral inflammation of the heart.
Heart health and vascular health – the health of the arteries and veins of the circulatory system — are interrelated. Astragalus is one of the best heart health herbs because it supports the healthy functioning of blood vessels and supports the efficient circulation of blood throughout the body.
Regular consumption of Astragalus herbal tea may help strengthen the heart muscles, thus enhancing the pumping of blood. The extract may improve the health of the lining of the veins and arteries, as well as help with vasodilation, reducing the effort needed to circulate blood.
Furthermore, Astragalus extract is an antioxidant that can help protect the cardiovascular system from reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS molecules are used by the body to fight pathogens, but they can also damage healthy cells. Some evidence also suggests that Astragalus benefits include decreasing the concentration of metalloproteinases. These compounds are known to contribute to vascular dysfunction.
Regulating cholesterol levels in the body supports the cardiovascular functions of the heart. Unhealthy cholesterol levels can contribute to ailments such as coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and rheumatic heart disorders. Astragalus herbal extract has the potential to inhibit cholesterol absorption in the small intestines and increase cholesterol metabolism. Drinking herbal tea made from Astragalus extract can help regulate cholesterol and serum triglyceride levels in the body. This combination can contribute to overall cardiovascular health.
Four Additional Heart Health Extracts
Hawthorn is one of the five heart health herbs in CardiAce Heart Health Kits because it supports increased blood flow to the heart muscle, as well as helps to improve cardiac performance and output. Hawthorn has traditionally been used to help address heart problems ranging from irregular heartbeat to high blood pressure to chest pain.
The Hawthorn berry is an abundant source of polyphenols. These polyphenols have powerful antioxidant properties that may help to neutralize free radicals. By absorbing free radicals, they decrease the risk of heart cardiovascular problems related to oxidative stress. In addition to direct action on the heart, Hawthorn supports the cardiovascular system by helping to maintain healthy blood pressure. Consuming Hawthorn tea can reduce the build-up of fats, cholesterol, and other substances on the arterial walls.
Cistanche tubulosa extract is one of the five heart health herbs in the CardiAce kit because it offers significant cardiovascular health support and cellular energy support. Cistanche has polyphenols with powerful antioxidant properties that can inhibit the action of free radicals in the body. Inhibiting free radicals can provide protection from heart problems and cardiovascular diseases.
Cistanche may also help maintain optimal blood pressure, thus improving endurance and the functioning of the heart. In addition, it can help to strengthen the endurance of the heart muscles. Cistanche is globally regarded for its well-studied anti-aging, antidepressant, energy and anti-fatigue support, neuroprotective, and sexual health support properties.

Angelica, in turn, supports cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health. This heart health adaptogen can help the heart tolerate stress.
A 2016 study published in Phytomedicine indicates that “Promising stress-relieving effects of Aralia are reported for people whose work requires a high level of attention. Its proposed ability to moderate stress-induced damage and dysfunction in the cardiovascular tissue might make Aralia the adaptogen of choice among patients with higher risk for cardiovascular diseases.”
While Angelica herbal extract is one of our favorite heart health herbs, it shows promise beyond heart health. It may support the treatment of coughs, jaundice, stomach ulcers, and stomach ailments; offer natural support for such issues as chronic fatigue, depression, stress and anxiety; help improve mood, memory, appetite, vigor, and overall vitality; help alleviate headaches; ease liver and urinary tract disease symptoms; and support the treatment of several diseases, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and rheumatoid arthralgia.
Finally, Dan Shen supports coronary artery and myocardium health. It also helps manage high blood pressure by increasing vasodilation, reducing platelet aggregation, and improving microcirculation.
Maintaining blood pressure within the ideal range is an essential aspect of heart health and cardiovascular health. Studies increasingly show that drinking Danshen herbal tea may alleviate hypertension and help maintain healthy blood pressure. This means that the blood can flow through the circulatory system with less effort.
Dan Shen also contains several phytoconstituents that may help regulate the amount of cholesterol in the body, along with anti-inflammatory properties that may help protect the heart cells at the cellular and subcellular level.
