Punarnava is a very effective Kidney tonic. It is also good for Heart health. If it is prescibed to you, then consult your Doctor first before altering the dosage. However for Heart health, use Arjuna bark powder. Make a decotion and take haf cup once a day. You can also take the powder with water.
