How Terminalia Arjuna is Useful?
Terminalia Arjuna is a deciduous evergreen tree. The bark of this tree is known for its medicinal properties, which is mostly considered to be cardiotonic/cardioprotective agent. Enhancement of cardiac-muscle function and its ensuing pumping activity is the main benefit of Teminalia. There are a number of human studies carried out on the bark of this tree. However, they are small in sample size. Nonetheless, the extract of the bark seems to be quite effective in enhancing cardiac function in people, who have undergone cardiac injury or trauma recently. Myocardial infarction is one of the most typically studied conditions. Various studies have showed the benefits of the herb in enhancing the function of left ventricle, which can help a person irrespective of the health-state.
In the animal models, the extract of the bark appears to protect the cardiac tissues from toxic substances. Other extracts like acetone or ethanolic with different bioactives might not have the same cardioprotective effects yet to some extent is cancer protective. In the animal models, it has been proved that the tumour growth is reduced with isolated Arjunolic Acid (a common bioactive) or ethanolic extract.This study establishes the anti-cancer properties of the ethanolic extract. The other benefits of Arjuna include reduction in risk of stomach ulcer with potency comparable to Rantidine.
The saponin glycosides are accountable for Terminalia’s inotropic effect while vascular strengthening and free-radical antioxidant property is provided by the OPcs and flavonoids. A dose-dependent reduction in the blood pressure and heart rate was noticed in dogs, which were given the herb intravenously. In a recent research, two more glycosides (cardenoilide cardiac) were separated from the seed and root of the tree. The main property of cardenolides is to enhance the strength of cardiac contraction by balancing the intracellular calcium and sodium levels.
