Nardostachys jatamansi belongs to the family Valerianaceae. It is commonly used as a folk medicine for hypolipidemic activity. This made us to evaluate the hypolipidemic and cardioprotective activity in isoproterenol and triton WR 1339 administered diseased animals. Pretreatment of isoproterenol administered animals with 50 mg/kg b.wt, of Nardostachys jatamansi was found to exhibit a better antioxidant and hypolipidemic activity. Mild changes in cardiac markers reveal that the dose of…

Anxiolytic actions of Nardostachys jatamansi via GABA benzodiazepine channel complex mechanism and its biodistribution studies

It is indicated that a 7-day treatment with NJE produced significant anxiolytic effects in mice and also a significant increase in brain monoamine and GABA neurotransmitter levels and suggests that anxioleytic effects of NJE are primarily and plausibly mediated by activating GABAergic receptor complex.

Antilipid peroxidative property of Nardostachys jatamanasi.

Antiperoxidative property of N. jatamanasi was tested by using iron induced lipid peroxidation in 5% rat liver homogenate and results suggested antilipid peroxidATIVE property of the plant.

Protective Efficacy of Nardostachys jatamansi (Rhizomes) on Mitochondrial Respiration and Lysosomal Hydrolases during Doxorubicin Induced Myocardial Injury in Rats

The findings suggest that the cardioprotective efficacy of Nardostachys jatamansi could be mediated possibly through its antioxidant effect as well as by the attenuation of the oxidative stress.

Cardioprotective potential of Ocimum sanctum in isoproterenol induced myocardial infarction in rats

Os may be of therapeutic and prophylactic value in the treatment of MI and was found to demonstrate maximum cardioprotective effect, which was confirmed by histopathological findings.

Complexation of Ginkgo biloba extract with phosphatidylcholine improves cardioprotective activity and increases the plasma antioxidant capacity in the rat.

It is demonstrated that complexation of Ginkgo biloba with phospholipids induces in the rat, even after a short treatment, a greater resistance of the heart to ischemia/reperfusion damage in respect to the native extract, due to an increased plasma antioxidant activity.

Effect of indigenous drug (Pushkarmula) on experimentally induced myocardial infarction in rats.

The pretreatment with Pushkarmula was found to be more effective than post treatment which gives a preventive and curative bearing of the drug in myocardial infarction.
