Arjuna is Terminalia arjuna, a herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for support of cardiovascular function. Recent science supports this role, through Arjuna's ability to support the function of the heart muscle and healthy lipoprotein balance.

Ayurveda, the Vedic “Science of Life,” was well aware of the serious health threat posed by cardiovascular disease. In their own terms, the ancient texts of the tradition describe atherosclerotic thickening (dhamani praticaya) and hardening (dhamani kathinaya) of the channels, resulting in the limitation of the flow of life-energy to the heart (vata dosa) and the painful pressure of angina (ruja). And 1200 years ago, the Ayurvedic physician Vagbhata asserted (in the Vedic medical text the Astang Hridyam) that Nature had provided a powerful medicine for these problems in the smooth, white bark of Terminalia arjuna, a tall, dense tree with long, conical leaves and white flowers.

This traditional use has been validated by solid science over the course of recent decades. More recently, there’s been a great surge of interest in Terminali arjuna ever since its heart-health benefits were singled out by Dr. Peter J. D’adamo in his latest book, The Complete Blood Type Diet Encyclopedia. D’Adamo lists Arjuna as a “Daily Herb” for Type A, and as a key part of his “Cardiovascular Protocol” for Type O. But leaving aside Dr. D’Adamo’s speculations, the science supporting Arjuna’s heart-healthy properties is solid ground.

In a recent open trial, twenty patients with stable angina took either an Arjuna-based herbal formula, or isosorbide mononitrate (an angina drug which works similarly to nitroglycerin), for twelve weeks. Arjuna was found to work as well as the drug, but with fewer side effects or signs of toxicity. It alleviated the symptoms of 80% of the angina patients, which is comparable to the 70% of patients relieved by the drug; similarly, Arjuna slashed the frequency of angina attacks by 67%, with the drug again giving similar performance at 73% fewer attacks. The results of a cardiac stress body’s need for oxygen puts extra demands on the heart) showed some nominal improvements over the course of the study in both groups, the changes were not found to be statistically significant in either group. In an earlier trial in people with both stable and unstable angina, three months’ of Arjuna supplementation cut angina attacks by 50% among the stable angina patients. These patients also experienced significant reductions in systolic blood pressure, while exercise tolerance improved, with patients taking longer to develop chest pains and signs of oxygen starvation on the electrocardiogram (ECG). While patients with unstable angina did not gain these benefits, both patient groups experienced improvements in the function of the left ventricle, the chamber of the heart that sends blood out to the rest of the body and whose dysfunction is a key part of unstable angina.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study in patients with congestive heart failure, people taking Arjuna experienced improvements in the signs and symptoms of heart failure. The grade of heart failure was reduced from class IV (the most serious degree, when your symptoms are present even at rest, and any physical activity simply makes things worse) to an average class III (where you may become tired and have difficulty breathing when you exercise, but you’re comfortable at rest). As well, their hearts were able to pump 10% more blood with each stroke while using Arjuna, while their hearts’ efficiency at emptying blood out the left ventricle (ejection fraction) jumped by nearly one-fifth (19.5%).

This group of people with heart failure was then tracked after the trial itself had ended as they continued taking Arjuna along with more conventional medications. As a group, these people’s symptoms, exercise tolerance, disease class, and quality of life continued to improve over the course of the next two years (on average) of Arjuna use.

Other trials have found that Arjuna has additional, long-term benefits, providing antioxidant protection and supporting healthier cholesterol balance. Animal studies also suggest that Arjuna may reduce damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack, providing protection to the heart in the worst possible crisis.
