Arjuna (Terminalia Arjuna)
The bark of Arjuna has been used extensively in Ayurveda as a heart tonic and specifically for supporting: healthy blood pressure, the function of the heart muscle, healthy lipoprotein (including cholesterol) balance and other aspects of a healthy cardiovascular system. In addition, Arjuna helps to cope with stress. Arjuna balances pitta and kapha doshas. In the Arjuna bark, the primary (and unique) active component is Arjunolic acid, a triterpenoid saponin. Tannins (naturally occurring plant polyphenols) are another category of active components in Arjuna.
