A variety of rist factors have been suspected for causing the coronary heart disease. 406 cases of both sex groups with age range of 35 to 55 years were selected from three distinct localities of varanasi city. Individuals who reported single or more risk factors of CHD were isolated from the population of the particular areas. After a detailed preliminary screening of the subjects various physical, physiological, psychological and biochemical measurements were carried out. Other basis of initial findings, the cases who sowed abnormal lipid profile with dominant psychological involvement were given the organic extract of Inula racemosa (Pushkarmool), commiphora mukul (Guggulu), centella asiatica (Mandukaparni) and Hypericum perforatum (Basant in prescribed doses continuously for 6 moths. Correction in the lipid profile including triglycerides, blood pressure and the psychological factors like anxiety and depression to a significant level following least drugs treatment indicated the cardioprotective and therapeutic effects of the present formulation. Hence, by modifying the cora0nar risk factors, the incidence of CD can be minimized to a great extent as well as the test formulation may also be advocated in the prevention and management of CHD.
