Materia Medica for Arjuna

Arjuna General

Arjuna is a Dense tree. Arjuna tree is a common site on the river banks. It is found in the southern and central India. It has cone shaped round leaves. It has white bark which is used in medicines. The bark gives milky juice when cut. In Ayurveda, Arjuna is used for pacifying Pitta and Kapha doshas. The cooling effect of Arjuna is useful in pacifying the Pitta dosha. The astringent, light and drying quality of Arjuna is beneficial in pacifying the Kapha dosha.

Arjuna is a complete Heart tonic. The antioxidant and Cholesterol lowering activity is behind the Heart benefits of Arjuna. It strengthens the Heart muscles and improves the functioning of the Heart. The pumping activity of the Heart and functioning of the left ventricle are improved by Arjuna. It protects the Heart during a trauma or injury to the Heart. It is a useful herbal remedy in ailments like Irregular Heart beat, Coronary Artery diseases and Heart failure. Arjuna Bark is a source of Co-enzyme Q-10 which prevents the occurrence of Heart attack. Body organs need energy for performing functions. Co-enzyme Q-10 is involved in producing and transporting energy to the organs. It is also needed by the Heart for performing functions. With growing age, heart muscles lose strength and Co-enzyme Q10 reduces in the body. This causes a rise in Cholesterol level and deposition of fatty substances in the arteries. Arjuna increases Co-enzyme Q-10 in the body and prevents Hypertension.

Arjuna lowers the level of Bad Cholesterol in the blood. The human body contains two types of cholesterol, LDL ( low density lipoprotein ) and HDL ( high density lipoprotein ). LDL also known as Bad Cholesterol transports the Cholesterol from the Liver to the rest of your body. The problem with LDL Cholesterol is, it gets build up in the arteries and causes problems like Blood Clots, Heart Stroke and Heart diseases. HDL also called the Good Cholesterol transports Cholesterol from the body to the Liver, it prevents the formation of blood clots and prevents Heart diseases.
The ideal level of LDL and HDL Cholesterol should be :
LDL : Less than 100 mg/dL
HDL : 60 mg/dL and higher

Arjuna raises the HDL Cholesterol, reduces the LDL Cholesterol, decreases the Total Cholesterol and inhibits the oxidative stress causing enzymes. It improves the elimination of Cholesterol from the body. Suffering from either High LDL or Low HDL? Arjuna is the remedy for both.

Arjuna is a cure for Bradycardia ( slow Heart rate ) and Tachycardia ( fast heart rate ). Bradycardia occurs with High Blood Pressure and Tachycardia arises with Low Blood Pressure. These are the methods adopted by the Heart for normalizing the Blood Pressure. Suffering from High Blood Pressure or Low Blood Pressure, Arjuna is a remedy for both. Arjuna lowers the resting systolic Blood Pressure.

It reduces the risk of Chest Pain due to reduced blood supply to the Heart called Angina. Arjuna strengthens the Heart muscles and cures the problem of Arrhythmia. It decreases the level of Stress and Nervousness in the Heart. Arjuna is taken with Milk or Sida Cordifolia ( Bala ) in Heart ailments. The combination is also useful in treating conditions like Fever, Haemophilia and Indigestion.

Arjuna benefits the Circulatory system. It can widen ( vasodilation ) or narrow ( vasoconstriction ) a blood vessel. Arjuna removes plaque and reverses the hardening of the arteries.

The bark contains calcium, aluminium, magnesium, tannins. It also contains crystalline compounds like lactone, sugar, essential oils. Powdered bark taken regularly with the Milk acts as an effective sex stimulant. The diuretic action of the bark is beneficial in removing stones from the Urinary system. A decoction made from the Arjuna bark and Sandalwood, relieves from Spermatorrhea. It is used in curing Sexually Transmitted Diseases like Gonorrhea.

Arjuna is a Liver tonic and recommended in Liver Cirrhosis. It fights against the Helicobacter Pylori bacteria and prevents the damage to the Gastric Mucosa. The antiulcerative property inhibits the occurrence of Gastric Ulcers and Gastritis. It is a good source of antioxidants which protect DNA damage.
The astringent effect of Arjuna is helpful in Piles and diarrhea with blood. It cures Biliousness, Dysentry and Urinary Tract diseases. It reduces the burning sensation in urine.
Arjuna is an astringent herb. The ethanolic extract, powder or decoction of Terminalia Arjuna is useful in wound healing. It speeds up the wound healing and prevents Blood loss.

Arjuna taken alone may cause slight constipation or flatulence. For this reason, arjuna is taken by boiling in Milk. This preparation is called "Arjuna Ksheera Paka", in Ayurveda. Ksheera or Kshira means Milk and Paka or Pakam means boil in Sanskrit.
Fennel ( Saunf ) and Carom ( Ajvain ) can be added or taken after "Arjuna Ksheera Paka", they cure the problem of Flatulence.
"Arjuna Ksheera Paka" enhances the power of Arjuna by many folds. It tastes better than Arjuna. The astringent taste and drying action of Arjuna is neutralized in "Arjuna Ksheera Paka". Ksheera Paka is even better than the decoction of Arjuna. The decoction contains only the water soluble nutrients of Arjuna.

I am 72 years old. My average Blood Pressure is 135/65. I read your site for Blood Pressure and started taking Homeopathic tincture of Arjuna. Three months have passed. Nothing has happened. My Blood Pressure is still the same. I have heard that the difference between the upper reading and the lower reading should be 40. Mine is more.

So, now I have two questions. Ayurveda says that I should take Arjun powder. Will that be better than tincture? I think tincture goes straight to the blood stream and should be more efficient. In the page above the difference is called pulse pressure. How to reduce it. If it is high what do I fear.

Hi My mothers heartbeat as become low it is around 50bpm due inadequate working of pacemaker which will be replaced by doctor by some days. Sir my question can she take arjun bark water will it improve her heartbeat to normal.
Thanks vivek
07 Apr 2016
Dear Vivek Sawant
We suggest , you should not give this Herb to your mother. The specific action of this Herb is to lower the diastolic ( lower reading ) more than it lowers the systolic. And you have mentioned that your mother's rate is already 50 beats per minute. Arjun may further reduce the heart beats per minute in this case. The Herb is Hawthorn. Take its tincture daily for a month. The tincture is known as Crataegus Oxyacantha. Start by taking 2 drops in a glass of water, then after a few days, dosage may be increased to 3, then four and maximum 5. A prior discussion with your health care provider is important before giving her any medications.

Dear Pradeep Why is it impossible to grind it ? I did it myself. you will have to grind it by Indian method. Do not use an electric gadget to grind it. Use pestle and mortar to grind the chal. Or alternatively you can buy the herb in the powder form itself.

It is advised that you go with your doctor's suggestion. she needs to have a pace maker implanted. Arjuna will not help in stopping the leakage. Pace maker is a must for her now. However for Liver, give her Milk thistle capsules. One capsule everyday for a month.
And for Creatinine, give her tincture of Tribulus Terristris. 5 drops of this tincture in a glass of water, everyday for a month.

Mena It is better that you consult your heart specialist. Since your doctor has diagnosed you physically, so it would be wise of you talk to him about it. Also, you are taking blood thinning medicines. Arjun Chhal is known to have blood thinning action and you are already taking those. I do not suggest that you should go for it. Or you may quit the blood thinner drugs you are taking and then consume Arjuna .

I've been taking Arjun Chhal/Kahua Bark since June 2016.
Previously, my blood pressure, ON medication was 140's-160's.
After 1 week of taking Kahua Bark, I went to a walk in clinic and asked for my blood pressure to be taken, it was 121/90.
I've had my blood pressure taken several times since and it's still 120/90...
This Bark is a life saver, not to mention that it has saved me from the countless side effects of High Blood Pressure Pills.

All these herbs will not only remove the Kidney stones but, will also strengthen and tone up the Kidneys. Please visit the page " Kidney Stones " given in the disease section of this website.

Yes, Arjuna is an excellent herb to cure Cardiovascular Disorders.
Please let me know if your parents are already taking any other drugs for the High cholesterol.
And You can give them Spirulina capsules for a month. One capsule per day. Do not give it if they also suffer from Low Blood Pressure, as it tends to lower the Blood pressure.

Hi Rajneesh, Thank you for replying. Sorry for following up so late. Actually, they are not taking any medications as of now.

Many thanks for understanding and giving best possible solution to treat my condition.

Please advice
11 Oct 2017
Ahmed. Try Tinospora Cordifolia mother tincture. It is known to lower the Blood Pressure. Have 5 drop of this tincture in a glass of water, every day for 15 days. Tinospora Cordifolia ( giloy ) lowers the blood pressure drastically, so keep a note of your blood pressure readings. You may try to lower the dose of the medicines that you already are taking for it.

See, arjuna tea, can be taken, regularly. One cup every day. But, consult your doctor if he is already on medication, then he needs to be cautious. Include Garluic in his daily diet, that is excellent for him. He may chew 2 cloves of Garlic every morning on an empty mistake. IS he taking any Blood thinning medicines ?

Dear Sir,
I am presently plus sixty and suffering from hypertension for the last twenty five years and have been using anti hypertensive drugs as prescribed by different physicians. At times I do give up taking the medicines but then after a couple of weeks the BP suddenly shoots up to 110/160 sometime a little lesser or higher. As you know that the conventional medical therapy normally uses ACE inhibitor and calcium channel blocker for simply maintaining the BP levels as they have no permanent cure for the problem but these drugs do have known side effects leaving aside the unknown ones. What I would like you to comment is whether Arjuna Terminalia acts as ACE inhibitor or calcium channel blocker or has a simultaneous action and do I need to continue my conventional drug along with the herb Arjuna for BP problem. By the way, I have been prescribed Extor 10/160 Tablets which has Amlodipine a calcium channel blocker plus Valsartan that contains a diuretic and Agniotensin Receptor blocker. After taking meals or tobacco or smoking a cigarette I have to wait for quite some time or else if I walk immediately I feel difficulty in walking. As per my physician, I have atherosclerosis.

If so, kindly advise. I am not taking any medicine. I just take Organic India Chyawanprash one teaspoon at night before sleep.

You are advised to visit the portal Vibrant health give on this website. There you will get answers to all your questions related to general well being and over all health. I will share the link with you--- https://herbpathy.com/The-Genesis-Vid48
23 Feb 2018
Why I am seeking such advise because our general tendency is that unless and until symptoms of any ailment/disorder manifests in body, we take the things for granted and never go for any diagnostic tests. One never knows what all changes are going inside the body. And with the growing age there is every possibility with everybody that there may be hardening of arteries, gradual increase in the levels of bad cholesterol, consistent slight increase in the BP and a person may not be aware of such hidden and silent changes in the body. So your valuable advise can be useful for very large number of people who are unaware and ignorant of such changes. In case Arjun ki Chaal can not be taken by people in the absence of any manifestation of heart related problems, kindly advise other means/herbs which can be consumed by people in a routine manner for keeping heart/arteries /BP in good condition.

Basil , walnut and NotoGinseng will help to cure Atherosclerosis . Not Ginseng herb may have side effects, I would suggest that you read about this herb in the herb section of website and then decide if you can take it or not. Basil, Walnut, Garlic, blac Carrot can be easily taken. You may tru these herbs when you know Arjuna did not suit you. Once Atherosclerosis is cured, the Hypertension will also be taken cure of.

I am Babu from Hyderabad. I am 43 years old.
2018 Aug - Sept, I followed ketogenic food for two months.
After that I joined gym. In the month of Nov 2018 while doing strength exercises, i felt small pain in my left chest, I approached the Cardilogist. He did ECG, TMT and Echocardigram test and said nothing wrong, but may have to go for angiogram to be sure of not having any blocks in heart. I am fit and fine but there is always a fear in mind. SInce then I felt like getting a kind of pain in my left chest if i sit for long hours or I drive long hours. I am not sure if it is a real pain or pain due to fear.
however, my personal physician has prescribed blood thinners (Natrilix SR and Deplatt A75)
one of my friend told me that Ajrun ka Chal (arjun poweder) can dissolve all the heart blocks. Therefore, I request you to review my case and advise a solution.
if I need to take the arjuna, whre can I buy this in Hyderabad?
please advise

Followed by green veggies e.g spinach and others and fresh fruits and juices of apple, beetroots and carrots. Thus reduced wt. from 89 kgs to 82 kgs. in one month's time. One time lunch and dinner with oatmeals. Does not have any symptoms of valve disease and fully active with normal activities. 2 D ech reports reveals 120/80 mmHg peak/ mean with LVEF 55 per cent. and moderate hypertrophy. My all the reports mandatory to pre surgery are in normal range. Angiography reveals minor plaque in Ostial D1. Kindly advice whether Arjuna tab. are useful in reversing valve stenosis (thickening of aortic valve due to calcification or degeneration. Morphology of valve could not be ascertained in 2 D Echo report. Thanks awaiting reply. S B Kanjan.

Dear Venkat.

Arjuna is a super effective herb for Heart diseases. You can consume it once in the day every morning. It can be taken after meals. Take it for a month and share the feedback after.

Please share the medication you are taking for Heart.
Allopathic drugs can interact with herbs. Consult your doctor before taking any medication.

Is it possible to share with readers the allopathic drugs to avoid when taking or intending to take Arjuna for high blood pressure?
17 Oct 2019
Hey Kofi. I was suggested by a doctor to avoid blood thinner medication and Blood pressure medicine and other Heart related particularly.
They say that it can increase the effect if you take allopathic medicine and herbal medicine together.
It's better to check the medicine in particular.

Dear Vipul, A healthy person can take, 1 cup daily. Be cautious if you have any Heart or Blood Pressure problem as the herb is known to raise or lower the blood pressure readings. You can have tea from Arjuna powder. Observe your blood pressure readings. Take it for 15 days. Observe yourself. If you are on any type of medication, consult your doctor first.

My dad had a heart attack in march 2019 due to one of the arteries being blocked and he had a stent put in. He is currently taking the medications prescribed to him (which also includes blood-thinning medication) in that situation can he still take arjuna tea.
15 Nov 2019
Dear Harry, Arjuna Tea can be given once in a day. Keep a check of his health initially. It is considered to be good for people with heart problems. Since he has Stent operate done, It is advised to visit his Health care practitioner first before starting anything new.

Hey Harry. Arjuna herb is known to show effect on Blood pressure. It can make the pressure high or low if someone is having a problem already. It is better to consult your doctor first as your father has an operate being done already.

Good Morning,
I am Using Arjuna Kasheera Paka for my High Blood pressure and Cholestrol problem. It gives very good results. But I have already Low libido problem and using this its increased. What should i take to cure this.

14 Apr 2020
Dear Hassan
Arjuna is a great herb for Heart problems.
Are you taking any other medications for High Blood Pressure? Heart medications can suppress the sexual desire in few cases. Consult with your Health care practitioner for medication or check upon the medicines yourself. Please read on 'GILOY' herb for High Blood Pressure. It is very effective. Add fruits as Watermelon, Avocados, etc that enhance the sex hormones. Try Mucuna Pruriens for it. Consult your Health Care practitioner before taking any medication.

Before i was taking medicine for blood pressure, heartbeat and Cholestrol. But since i start using arjuna i stooped those medicines.
15 Apr 2020
Dear Hassan If you are not taking medication for High Blood Pressure, we suggest you to start Giloy, It will keep the Blood Pressure reading normal, Twice a day. Buy the tincture form, 2 drops in a glass of water morning evening or have the herb and take 1 cup decoction twice a day. Keep a check on BP readings for 3-4 consecutive days. it is not advisable to stop Blood pressure medication on own.
Keep taking Arjuna Along. Start with Mucuna Pruriens for low libido. Take 1 capsule daily for 10 days. Take a gap of 10-15 days. If you feel good, don't take back, else take for another 10 days. Write back for further assistance.

- Ginger: Extract the fresh juice of fresh Ginger. Take one teaspoon with one teaspoon Honey twice a day.
- Eucalyptus oil: Add few drops of Eucalyptus oil in a cup of boiling water. Inhale the steam. You should take these for 5-7 days regularly. - Arjun Chaal holds various properties of cure. Continue the use if it suits you, be cautious if you have Heart or other problems related. Please check the Arjun chaal page on this website.

Arjuna is an excellent herb for regulating blood pressure. Take Arjuna Chaal ( powder) continuously for 2 months, your blood pressure and pulse pressure will be under control. For Diabetes, you can take Gurmar herb. Its homeopathic name is Gymnema Sylvestre- 2 drops in a glass of water once in a day. If you are already taking any medication for Diabetes, please consult your Health care practitioner or keep a thorough check of the sugar level as Gurmar is known to lower the blood sugar level.
Take walk for 30 minutes atleast once in a day.

I was diagnosed with Afib in June if this year. I was on metoprolol but had to stop it as it caused terrible side effects and making my problem worse. I still take Eliquis anticoagulant. But side effects are just as bad as the metoprolol I quit. I don't tolerate pharmaceutical drugs well. I can't metabolize them. The Drs here don't listen to the patient. Don't want to hear your complaints about any side effects. Or find a cause for what's wrong. They just want to give you more pills that cause more harm. I have always used herbs for various health conditions with good outcomes most of my life. I am looking for a substitute for the Eliquis. Is arjuna a good substitute? Can it be taken long term? Do you know about nattokinase? I have read it is also a good substitute for pharmaceutical anticoagulants. I also have mild valve regurgitation which doesn't seem to be concerning to the Drs. I believe the Eliquis does bother it sometimes. Please let me know if arjuna would work. Or the nattokinase. And how much to take of either one. I am a 68 year old female with no other problems. The Eliquis is taking away from my quality of life. Thank you so much
