Product Description

Arjuna Flow by AOR

About 1200 years ago, an Ayurvedic physician attested that the solution to atherosclerotic thickening and hardening (dhamanai praticaya and dhamani kathinaya) resulting in angina (ruja) and limiting the flow of life-energy directly to the heart (vata dosa) could be treated with the smooth white bark of the tree, Terminalia arjun. This claim has been researched and validated by science and lately there has been a great deal of interest particularly since Dr. Peter J D’Adamo cited Arjuna in his latest book The Complete Blood Type Diet Encyclopedia.

Arjuna, proven by science and by traditional medicine is a natural herbal extract beneficial as healthy heart support. Arjuna promotes healthy blood flow, reduces blood pressure and balances cholesterol.

Background Information

An Ayurvedic Herb

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.

Credit to Arjuna’s Cardiovascular Benefits

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 Terminalia 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.

Research

Arjuna in Angina

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 test (which tests how well the
heart can cope during exercise, when the body’s need for oxygen puts
extra demands on the heart) showed some nominal improvements over the
course of the study in both groups, although 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.

Arjuna in Congestive Heart Failure

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 Heart Health Benefits

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.

Market Trends

Heart disease and heart ailments are a common
concern, especially among the elderly population. Usually,
pharmaceutical cocktails are used to help control these severe diseases.
Though not well-known in modern medicine or in North-American
supplement markets, arjuna has been clinically demonstrated to support
healthful heart functions by improving blood flow to the heart, reducing
blood pressure levels and by balancing cholesterol.
