    Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are presently considered a leading cause of death worldwide, ranked first, both in the developing as well as in the developed nations. An estimated number of deaths due to CVDs are found to be more than 17.5 million that accounts for nearly one-third of all deaths annually. The current medications used for the treatment and prevention of CVDs comprise of statins, aspirin, beta-blockers, and angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors. However, some of these conventional medications have serious side effects, and few instances even suggest the discontinuance of such medications. In this context, we have focused on nutraceuticals which have potential preventive and therapeutic values that are now considered as powerful alternatives against CVDs and in the maintenance of good health. Nutraceuticals have ushered in a new era of health and medicine since they comprise of natural dietary products with no or fewer side effects. Nutraceuticals are widely available in various forms including capsules, tablets, and powders and have shown the potential to work as a better and safer alternative against the conventional medical regimen for CVDs. In spite of such progress, each of these nutraceuticals has their own limitations that demand more research in the near future. This review highlights the Indian scenario in the occurrence of CVDs and focuses on a number of nutraceuticals with the potential to prevent and treat CVDs.
