In India, this herb has commanded well-deserved respect from the research community. The bark from the Arjuna tree has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda to support numerous health concerns including, prominently, cardiovascular health. Today, research is backing up these ancient claims and cardiologists are beginning to incorporate Arjuna into their cardio-care protocols. In fact, in certain instances research has suggested that Arjuna supports western heart-related medications, as well as supporting heart health on its own. Arjuna may be an example of a scenario of the future, where western medicines and herbs work together for the benefit of the patient.
