Bilobalide herb reduces damage to the heart caused by cardiac disease – study

by Journal of Pharmaceutical Analysis Myocardial ischemia (MI) is a prevalent heart-related metabolic disorder. A team of researchers from China have confirmed that MI-affected heart muscles suffer an energy metabolism blockage from glycolysis to the tricarboxylic acid cycle, resulting in excessive metabolite accumulation. Bilobalide, an active component found in extracts of the native Chinese tree …
