Arjuna bark benefits | CoQ10 heart muscles | cholesterol

Arjuna bark powder has been found to contain CoenzymeQ10 or CoQ10. This is very important in metabolizing cellular energy. CoQ10 is most concentrated in healthy heart muscle tissues which supports the continuous pumping action of the heart. Coenzyme Q10 is also an effective antioxidant in the circulatory system

Arjuna bark also has been found to contain triterpenoid saponins, arjunic acids, triterpene glycoside, arjunetoside, oleanolic acids, and a cardenolide.

Arjuna has a marked stimulant effect on the heart and has been used by Ayurvedic practitioners for centuries to improve heart health, relieve hypertension, dropsy, nervousness and other heart related problems.

The Indian Central Council for Research on Ayurveda and Siddha, citing 20 studies, reported that arjuna bark is valuable in treating angina pectoris, hypercholesterolemia, cardiac artery disease (CAD), and hypertension (Pandley et al., eds, 1996; Dwivedi and Jauhari, 1997).
Terminalia Arjuna
A 2001 study in Jaipur, India compared the heart health benefits of arjuna tree bark with Vitamin E. 105 patients with heart disease were divided into 3 groups: Placebo, Vitamin E and finely pulverized bark powder. After the month long study, No significant changes were found in the placebo or Vitamin E groups for total, HDL and LDL cholesterol levels. In the Arjuna bark group, however, total and LDL cholesterol were significantly reduced. Researchers concluded that Terminalia arjuna tree bark powder proved to have a significant cholesterol lowering effect (The Journal of the Association of Physicians of India (49:231-5, 2001).
