We often encounter patients who, despite having remarkably high blood pressure, refuse to take any medications. We do educate ... about the consequences of untreated hypertension: heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, etc. But, alas, sometimes the voice of reason is not heeded. It's either "natural" or nothing. While not subscribing to this "binary" mindset, we would like to offer an alternative.

The bark of Terminalia arjuna, commonly known as arjuna, has been successfully used to treat chest pain, hypertension, congestive heart failure, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, and dyslipidemia.

Terminalia arjuna
Arjuna tree - a source of natural medication to treat the heart disease

We had our patients try it. The results were amazing! Many were able to cut down on their blood pressure meds. The lucky ones switched from a prescription blood pressure medication to arjuna.

Active ingredients:

Triterpenoids, β-sitosterol, flavonoids, and glycosides.

Pharmacological action:

- Cardiotonic: Increases heart’s force of contraction and lowers heart rate

- Diuretic: Modulates renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system of the kidneys

- Cholesterol-lowering: Increases hepatic clearance of cholesterol, inhibits HMG-CoA reductase

- Antioxidant: Prevent oxidative stress associated with ischemic injury of the heart

- Antianginal: Opens up heart blood vessels and improves coronary blood circulation

- Antihypertensive: Relaxes the body’s blood vessels and reduces blood pressure

- Antithrombotic: Decrease platelet aggregation

- Antiatherogenic: Maintains the integrity of blood vessels

Give Arjuna a try!
