Arjuna focuses specifically to keep the lymph moving and draining around the heart which then encourages healthy arterial blood flow and healthy muscular contractions.
Angina is the pain that occurs when the heart is receiving low oxygen. It habitually happens when the heart is working hard, such as during exercise, but it can also happen at random. Arjuna was found to reduce the frequency of angina attacks by 50 percent or more in patients taking 200mg – 500mg of Arjuna extract daily.
