Arjuna Bark Powder (Terminalia arjuna) 50g




Terminalia arjuna is a large tree native to he Indian sub continent. Family Combretaceae.

The arjuna was introduced into Ayurveda as a treatment for heart disease by Vagbhata. It is traditionally prepared as a milk decoction. It was also mentioned in many ancient Indian vedas and was a known practice for thousands of years, passed down by tradition, before vagbhata mentioned it in his writings. Vagbhata mentions arjuna in the treatment of wounds, hemorrhages and ulcers, applied topically as a powder. The Arjuna plant  has traditionally been used to treat heart disease for centuries, which is why it got the nickname “Guardian of the heart.” It’s named after the hero of the famous epic “Mahabharata”, because of its protective effects.

Arjuna is considered a cardioprotective herb. It appears to reduce blood pressure and pulse rate and may increase aerobic exercise capacity.
