The main indication for its use is heart palpitation. It is an excellent cardiac tonic and improves the strength of the cardiac muscles. All its ingredients improve the heart health and are helpful for treating cardiac diseases. It modulates the acid secretion in the stomach. It acts as a protective medicine for stomach, which helps to treat dyspepsia, hyperacidity and gastritis. It also acts on brain and nerves.
