Cactus and Hawthorn work together both as a heart tonic with the cactus helping the Nerve Plexus and regulating the heart beat and the Hawthorn is a circulation and heart herb specifically.
Valerian is directly aimed at easing muscular tension, which leads to inefficient blood supply. Once the muscles are able to relax, the blood supply increases allowing for healing and repair to occur.
Elecampane helps to increase lung capacity and is the key ingredient that will strengthen the lungs. This along with the Saw Palmetto and Valerian help to build tissue health.
