As a cardiac tonic—It is a highly esteemed cardiac toxic and a preparation called "Arjuna Ksheera Paka" is repeatedly used with encouraging results in the Ayurvedic medical
field. Here is how you prepare it.
Add 2 tsp of Arjun bark powder to a glass of milk diluted with 4 glasses of water. Boil this preparation down to a glass. Take this in two doses everyday to keep your heart fit
and ward off problems of angina, cholesterol and high blood pressure.
In wounds—Make a decoction of the bark powder and wash wounds with it. This aids the healing process and speedens normalisation of skin.
In fractures—Take a tsp of the powder of the bark everyday to facilitate quick healing of bone tissue in fractures.
In diabetes—Taking a decoction of the bark everyday is very useful in diabetes as the tannins contained in the bark tone the endocrine system.
As a cosmetic—In spotty and discoloured skin, make a face pack of the bark powder and milk and use everyday to lighten spots and patches.
