Hepatica Arjuna is a dietary supplement containing Arjuna bark extract, standardized for the content of arjunic acid. It has a beneficial effect on heart health and is a valuable element in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna), and more precisely, Arjun tree, is an Indian medicinal plant, highly appreciated by Ayurvedic medicine specialists. In medicine, mainly the bark of the tree is used due to the richness of phytochemicals, such as polyphenols, flavonoids, tannins, triterpene glycosides, minerals, and amino acids. The most biologically active compounds are terpenoids and the main representative of this group – arjunic acid.
Arjuna has great cardioprotective potential. It works in several different ways, e.g., it promotes the increased coronary flow and strengthens the contraction force of the myocardium. In addition, it helps to maintain the proper level of activity of endogenous antioxidant enzymes, prevents the decrease of superoxide dismutase, catalase, or glutathione. Thanks to this, it contributes to the strengthening of the protection against oxidative stress, which plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of heart and circulatory diseases.
Arjuna shows an antihypertensive effect. In traditional Indian medicine, it is commonly used to lower too high blood pressure. The researchers trying to explain this phenomenon concluded that the chemical compounds found in the Arjun tree bark probably use the same mechanism of action as the popular beta blockers. Though the research in this field was conducted only on animals, its results are very promising.
Arjuna may support the therapy of lipid disorders. In rodent tests, the plant has been proved to contribute to the lowering of total and LDL cholesterol, and also to the promotion of the reduction of triglyceride levels. Interestingly, this happens even when supplementation with Arjuna extracts was not combined with a typical anti-cholesterol diet.
In conclusion, Hepatica Arjuna is a valuable preparation supporting the health of the heart and cardiovascular system. It is especially recommended for people at a high risk of cardiovascular diseases. Supplementation should be also considered by smokers and people with a poor diet.
The standard dose used for the prevention of cardiovascular disease ranges from 250 mg to 500 mg per day. Higher doses are recommended to people after a heart attack, with hypertension or hypercholesterolemia, yet their implementation requires consultation with the attending physician – especially when the patient is simultaneously subjected to traditional pharmacological treatment.
Specialists suggest combining the Arjuna extract with Ashwagandha for even better action. Such a combination is very beneficial for the cardiovascular system, whereas, in healthy people, it may bring additional advantages related to the improvement of physical performance.
