Traditionally used in Ayurveda as a natural remedy for improving heart health and blood quality, including circulation and blood flow, Arjuna heartwood has become the topic of numerous studies for its ability to stabilise cardiac functions like blood pressure. This potassium-rich plant is reported to strengthen the heart muscles as well as stimulate the release of excess mucus from within the lungs.
Ayurveda recommends Arjuna (Terminalia Arjuna) for maintaining good cardiovascular health and classifies it as a rejuvenative cardiovascular tonic. Highly regarded for its ability to nourish and strengthen heart muscles, and improve blood flow and oxygen levels, it also helps with blood purification, lower blood pressure, and can improve cholesterol.
In fact, many clinical studies have shown that Arjuna is useful in treating heart disorders like heart pain (chronic stable angina) and even plays a nutritional role in preventing heart failure when taken regularly. Scientific studies have shown Arjuna bark has high antioxidant properties and it leads to healthier blood vessel walls and increased elasticity in arteries.
Arjuna has traditionally been used to naturally balance both blood glucose and cholesterol levels due to its appetiser and digestive properties.
Within skincare, Arjuna extract contains the compound oleic acid, which is reported to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the periorbital eye area, as well as promote microcirculation and decrease undereye puffiness.
