Well renowned for their circulatory system benefits, Strauss Heart Drops are carefully selected and formulated in specific proportions, resulting in a high quality herbal tincture designed to promote optimal health and vitality. Strauss Heart Drops contain herbs traditionally known and widely used for cardiovascular concerns including Garlic (used to help lower cholesterol), Hawthorn (gradually helps to strengthen the heart muscle), Cayenne (historically used for circulation), Bilberry (known to help inhibit blood clots and strengthen arteries), Motherwort (traditionally used for regulating heart beat), White Willow Bark (natural blood thinner). Together these ingredients have proven to greatly enhance the body's ability to maintain normal circulation, heart beat, and more. Also excellent for those concerned with cleansing and detoxification, diabetes, varicose veins, and others.
Strauss Heartdrops are crafted from carefully selected herbs that, through generations of experience and hundreds of years of historical herbal usage, have been considered beneficial for the circulatory system and overall vitality.
Garlic- Historically used to lower LDL cholesterol levels, the properties within Garlic have the ability to stimulate cell growth and activity. It is a health building and disease preventative herb and also helps to dissolve cholesterol in the bloodstream. Garlic has been shown to open up the blood vessel and reduce blood pressure in hypersensitive patients and inhibit platelet aggregation.
Hawthorn- Used regularly, hawthorn is known to help strengthen the heart muscle and improve overall cardiovascular function. It has been used in preventing arteriosclerosis and in helping conditions such as rapid and feeble heart action, heart valve defects, enlarged heart, angina pectoris and difficult breathing owing to ineffective heart action and lack of oxygen in the blood.
Cayenne- Traditionally used for warding off diseases and equalizing blood circulation. Cayenne increases heart action but not blood pressure. It is known to help prevent strokes and heart attacks and also works as a catalyst, helping to carry all other herbs quickly to the part of the body where it is most needed.
Bilberry- Improves circulation and feeds the capillaries by altering the ability of fluids and nourishment to pass through. Bilberry's unique properties help to strengthen the coronary arteries and improve varicose veins, as well as assist in the reduction of atherosclerosis, and reduce the likeliness of blood clots through its thinning ability.
Motherwort- Helps to strengthen the heartbeat without increasing heart rate and relaxes the coronary arteries, resulting in increases circulation to the heart.
White Willow Bark(in trace amounts) - Natural blood thinner.
Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the main cause of death in Canada. Smoking, blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and diabetes are major risk factors for CVD. The provincial heart health surveys (1987-92) have shown that two in three Canadians have one or more of these major risk factors.
The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and approximately 60 thousand miles of blood vessels, called arteries and veins. The heart pumps blood around the body. The vessels nourish cells by transporting nutrients and waste products, through the blood, around the body. Any interruption in blood supply, for example a heart attack or stroke, causes tissue death so the maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system is essential.
Most cardiovascular disease occurs due to lifestyle factors such as: 1. Obesity, poor nutrition, and medication usage. 2. Free radical damage due to environmental toxins or smoking. 3. Stress or poor emotional health. 4. Lack of exercise.
Poor nutrition is detrimental to heart health because the heart muscle needs a constant supply of nutrients to keep pumping. The standard North American diet is deficient in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. It is high in saturated fat, refined carbohydrates and chemical additives and preservatives. These substances not only do not give your heart usable energy, but they also contain high amounts of vessel damaging materials like trans-fatty acids.
Free radical damage is also a factor in the development of CVD. Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. This can cause damage to the smooth inner lining of the vessels and lead to inflammation. Inflammation causes a build up of scar tissue that makes the area susceptible to further damage or plaque formation. Homocysteine, excess iron, food, water, tobacco use and environmental pollutants are the major contributors of free radical damage in the cardiovascular system.

9. Are there any side effects?
Heartburn : The cayenne and/or garlic in the Strauss Heartdrops may cause heartburn. The longer you hold the drops in the mouth the less spicy they are when swallowed. Start with 1-5 drops a day and slowly build up the recommended amount. Eating 1 tablespoon of homemade sauerkraut (made wth salt only, not with wine or vinegar) 15 minutes before taking the drops may eliminate the heartburn. Eating 1 heaping tablespoon 3 times per day on an empty stomach may help rebuild the stomach lining and help repair ulcers.
Detoxification: Some people may experience detoxification when using Strauss Heartdrops. These toxins may leave the body through pores in the skin and provoke temporary skin irritation like a rash or pimples. You may also experience diarrhea or an increase in bowel movements, increased urination,
headache, dizziness, nausea and/or gas.
All of these are quite likely to occur during detoxification, signs your body is expelling toxins. If this becomes uncomfortable, reduce the Strauss Heartdrops amount to as little as 1 drop a day (do not completely stop taking) until the detoxifying stage is complete. A modification to your diet and/or habits may be required to reduce or stop the influx of new toxins. Once this stage is over, add 1 or 2 drops per day until you are comfortable taking the entire serving.
Cholesterol Levels: During the first few months expect your cholesterol level in your blood to rise since this is the first place your cholesterol will go when removed from your artery walls. Then cholesterol level will drop to normal. During this time, continue on with Strauss Heartdrops at the present serving size. If your cholesterol levels do not normalize after 6 months, even after increasing your serving as directed, you may have an under active thyroid.
Blood Pressure: In rare circumstances, a person's blood pressure may elevate temporarily. Blood pressure should normalize after 60 days while taking Strauss Heartdrops.
