Arjuna Flow is Terminalia arjuna, an Ayurvedic herb traditionally used to support heart health. Ayurveda, the ancient medicine system of India, was well aware of the serious health threat posed by cardiovascular disease. In their own terms, the ancient texts of the tradition describe thickening and hardening of the arteries (dhamani praticaya and dhamani kathinaya), resulting in the limitation of the flow of life-energy to the heart (vata dosa) and the painful pressure of angina (ruja). And 1200 years ago, Ayurvedic medicine determined that nature had provided a powerful treatment for these problems in the smooth, white bark of Terminalia arjuna, a tall, dense tree with long, conical leaves and white flowers.
Recent scientific evidence supports this traditional role and demonstrates that arjuna encourages a healthy blood lipid profile and supports the function of the heart muscle by increasing its capacity to pump blood more efficiently. By increasing cardiac capacity, it can improve circulation and reduce symptoms of angina as well as the frequency of attacks. Studies with arjuna have found that supplementation can help to reduce blood pressure as well as improve the ability to exercise. In patients with cardiovascular problems, arjuna supplementation was found to reduce the signs and symptoms of heart failure. Arjuna may have the ability to protect the heart and reduce damage to the heart muscle after heart attacks.
Arjuna offers long-term health benefits such as antioxidant protection and the promotion of healthy cholesterol balance and blood flow. It is therefore ideal for those who are concerned about their cardiovascular health, who have a weak heart or who have had previous heart attacks.
AOR’s Arjuna Flow works by utilizing the medicinal properties of terminalia arjuna to promote heart health, cholesterol balance, and a healthy blood flow. Arjuna also offers long-term health benefits such as antioxidant protection.

Arjuna in Angina
In a recent open trial, twenty patients with stable angina took either an Arjuna-based herbal formula, or isosorbide mononitrate (an angina drug which works similarly to nitroglycerin), for twelve weeks. Arjuna was found to work as well as the drug, but with fewer side effects or signs of toxicity. It alleviated the symptoms of 80% of the angina patients, which is comparable to the 70% of patients relieved by the drug; similarly, Arjuna slashed the frequency of angina attacks by 67%, with the drug again giving similar performance at 73% fewer attacks. The results of a cardiac stress test (which tests how well the heart can cope during exercise, when the body’s need for oxygen puts extra demands on the heart) showed some nominal improvements over the course of the study in both groups, although the changes were not found to be statistically significant in either group.
In an earlier trial in people with both stable and unstable angina, three months of Arjuna supplementation cut angina attacks by 50% among the stable angina patients. These patients also experienced significant reductions in systolic blood pressure, while exercise tolerance improved, with patients taking longer to develop chest pains and signs of oxygen starvation on the electrocardiogram (ECG). While patients with unstable angina did not gain these benefits, both patient groups experienced improvements in the function of the left ventricle, the chamber of the heart that sends blood out to the rest of the body and whose dysfunction is a key part of unstable angina.
Other Heart Health Benefits
Other trials have found that Arjuna has additional, long-term benefits, providing antioxidant protection and supporting healthier cholesterol balance. Animal studies also suggest that Arjuna may reduce damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack, providing protection to the heart in the worst possible crisis.
