Chest pain relief: SalvTonic contains a combination of herbs that provide multi-target protection for the heart and blood vessels by increasing blood flow and improving circulation, including microcirculation to the heart muscle.

Human studies on the three herbal combination found in SalvTonic (also known as Danshen Dripping pill) have specifically proven increased microcirculation to the heart (myocardial) tissue, thus improves symptoms associated with chest pain in cases of stable angina. (1)(2)(3)(5)

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the herbs in SalvTonic are used to invigorate blood, remove blood stasis and regulate Qi to alleviate pain in the chest due to stagnation of Qi and blood.

Key features: Increases blood flow and circulation throughout the body, increases blood flow and microcirculation to the heart muscle, improves symptoms of chest pain (stable angina), reduces total and LDL cholesterol, and increase HDL cholesterol.
