According to the Australian Heart Foundation information, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of death in Australia, with 45,392 deaths attributed to CVD in Australia in 2015. Cardiovascular disease kills one Australian every 12 minutes.
Coronary Heart Disease:
affects around 1.2 million Australians
is the single leading cause of death in Australia
claimed the lives of 19,777 Australians (12% of all deaths) in 2015
kills one Australian every 27 minutes
It is estimated over 400,000 Australians have had a heart attack at some time in their lives.
Each year, around 54,000 Australians suffer a heart attack. This equates to one heart attack every 10 minutes.
Heart attack claimed 8,443 lives in 2015, or on average, 23 each day.
There are two types of strokes:
· Ischemic Stroke – Blockage of blood vessel
o Account for 80% of strokes, occur when blood supply to brain is blocked by blood clot hence resembling heart attack to the brain. The clot is an accumulation of fatty cells within the artery, which reduces the circumference of the vessel reducing blood flow. It is possible for the clot to break off and block other locations of the body within the circulatory chain. If blood flow is interrupted in short periods, this is known as a ‘mini stroke’, which the brain can recover from. However if a blockage lasts longer, this will starve the brain of oxygen and nutrients, which will lead to brain tissue damage, known as cerebral infarction, which is generally irreversible.
Hemorrhagic Stroke – Blood vessel burst
Bleeding occurring from rupture of leakage of the brain. Can either occur intracranial (between skull and brain) or intracerebral (brain itself). If there is heavy bleeding accumulated, hematoma can occur, causing compression of nearby brain tissue. Under this pressure, oxygen and nutrients are unable to reach brain cells, hence causing brain cell death.
Fatty Liver is caused by high blood cholesterols, is a term used to describe the excessive accumulation of fat within the liver.
The liver is the second largest organ in the body. The liver’s function is to process everything we eat or drink and filter any harmful substances from the blood. This process is interrupted if too much fat is in the liver. The liver commonly repairs itself by rebuilding new liver cells when the old ones are damaged. When there’s repeated damage to the liver, permanent scarring takes place. This is called Cirrhosis.
Fatty liver is common. Approximately 12 percent of Australians have too much fat in their liver, but no inflammation or damage is present. Most cases of fatty liver are detected in people between ages 40 and 60. When fatty liver is caused by an underlying condition, it can become harmful to the liver if the cause is not recognized and treated.
Alzheimer's Disease & Vascular Dementia:
Dementia is a term used to describe a large group of conditions affecting the brain which cause a progressive decline in a person’s functioning.
Common symptoms include:
language and communication difficulties;
loss of ability to perform everyday tasks;
changes in behaviour and emotions.
Dementia is not a normal part of ageing, although it is more common in older people and affects approximately one in three people over the age of 85.
Younger people can develop dementia as well. The term Younger/Working Age Dementia is used to describe dementia occurring in people aged under 65 years.
The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease (50-70% of all cases), but there are many other types of dementia, including vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia and Lewy Body disease.
In fact, some Alzheimer’s diseases included vascular dementia, due to Cerebrovascular Sclerosis or Stroke.
Whatever the types and causes of dementia, the most fundamental and final reason is lack nutrition of brain cells. And this is due to lack of blood supply; lack of blood supply is mainly due to Cerebrovascular Sclerosis or Stroke.
Thus, whether it is myocardial infarction or stroke, or fatty liver, or dementia, dysfunction organ cells due to lack of blood supply; lack blood supply due to poor blood circulation; poor blood circulation due to high blood cholesterols and the hardness of arteries (atherosclerosis).
Therefore, improve blood circulation is not just thinning blood. The best way to improve organ cells nutrition is to maintain blood cholesterols in the normal range and to enhance the force of blood flow.
Wholesome Concentrated Herbal Granules is created based on this concept. It has selected 11 non-toxic herbs that boost vital energy, aids digestion and helps to emulsify fats in the digestive system, preventing cellular and circulatory stasis. This formulation works to cohesively provide a better health outcome for the general wellbeing of the consumer.
Wholesome Concentrated Herbal Granules is a listed medicine in the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Registration Number - AUST L 286982.

How does a specific herbal formulation provide a wide spectrum of benefits by reacting with different organs?
Firstly, to understand this, we must acknowledge that a single herb contains more than just one active ingredient; secondly, one formulation for example Wholesome Concentrated Herbal Granules contains 11 different herbs with more than 11 active ingredients. When a formulation is portioned and diffused correctly, its effectiveness is exponential.
Wholesome Concentrated Herbal Granules is designed to regulate cardiovascular, neurological and hepatic cellular function by stimulating essential nutrient and oxygen carrying capacity to each cell. There are fundamental factors that help achieve these goals: Stimulation of blood circulation (energy), quality of individual erythrocytes. The compound formulation of Wholesome Concentrated Herbal Granules is created to achieve these goals.
