Md. Nur Kabidul Azam, Md. Abdul Mannan, Md. Nasir Ahmed

Bangladesh is a developing countries where both incidence and prevalence of Ischaemic heart disease has been increasing gradually and unless concerted efforts are made and national policy of prevention of risk factors are undertaken. The objective of this study was to conduct a survey of medicinal plants used by the traditional medical practitioners in the Barandra (Rajshahi division) and Shamatat (Khulna division) region of Bangladesh for heart diseases. The practitioners advised consumption of 28 plants to prevent or reduce the chances of occurrences of various heart disorders. Since the traditional patients appeared to be generally satisfied with the treatment offered through these plants, they do not have to visit modern medical practitioners. It is important to conduct proper scientific studies towards discovery of compounds of interest in these plants, which can be used as safe and effective medicines for cure heart diseases.
