Ayurveda, the Vedic "Science of Life," was well aware of the serious health threat posed by cardiovascular disease. In their own terms, the ancient texts of the tradition describe atherosclerotic thickening (dhamani praticaya) and hardening (dhamani kathinaya) of the channels, resulting in the limitation of the flow of life-energy to the heart (vata dosa) and the painful pressure of angina (ruja). Twelve hundred years ago, the Ayurvedic physician Vagbhata asserted (in the Vedic medical text the Astang Hridyam) that Nature had provided a powerful medicine for these problems in the smooth, white bark of Terminalia arjuna, a tall, dense tree with long, conical leaves and white flowers.
Traditional use has been validated by solid science over the course of recent decades. There has been a great surge of interest in Terminali arjuna ever since its heart-health benefits were singled out by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo in his book, The Complete Blood Type Diet Encyclopedia. D'Adamo lists Arjuna as a "Daily Herb" for Type A, and as a key part of his "Cardiovascular Protocol" for Type O. But leaving aside Dr. D'Adamo's speculations, the science supporting Arjuna's heart-healthy properties is solid ground.
