A very recent study published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine in Jan’18 was aimed to evaluate the antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of ethanolic extract of bark and leaves of Terminalia arjuna compared to its different solvent fractions. The results of this study “clearly indicated comparative antioxidant potential and antimicrobial activity in extracts of bark and leaves of arjuna. Results obtained in the present study strongly suggest that the polyphenols are important constituents of T. arjuna for the antioxidants potential as well as antimicrobial activity. …..In conclusion, antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of bark and leaves extract were comparable. There was marginal increase in antimicrobial and antioxidant in some extracts for bark and leaves. Therefore, the current study recommends the use of leaves of T. arjuna as substitute of bark for antioxidant and antimicrobial therapeutics.” (Kumar et. Al. 2018, p.100,106)[iii]

Our human body systems especially food metabolism and energy synthesis processes produce so many different harmful waste products including unpaired electrons called free radicals. These free radicals attack and oxidise the oxygen available in our body and cause oxidative stress related diseases specially precancerous or premalignant conditions. An experimental investigation carried out by BOSE et. al. (2011) at the Antioxidant Society of India revealed that the above mentioned Amlaki, Haritaki and Bahera individually or collectively in Triphala are powerful and effective antioxidant. Some important and useful healthy/medicinal information revealed from this study can be consulted from their article published in a journal named Science & Culture in Nov-Dec. 2011 (please see the quotations below):
“Triphala (combination of aqueous extract of Amlaki, Haritaki & Bahera) is extensively used as household remedy in India and South East Asia from ancient time. …… The bioactive components of triphala has been shown to have a wide spectrum of biological actions. These include its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, antibacterial, antiulcer activities. It’s anti-inflammatory, anticancer and antioxidant roles may be clinically exploited to control rheumatism, carcinogenesis and oxidative stress related pathogenesis.” (BOSE et. al., 2011, p511)[[v]]
“The difference types of toxic effects of the free radicals (unpaired electrons) ….. and Reactive Oxygen Species ….. such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), hypochlorus acid (HOCl) & singlet oxygen (O2) ….. can be blocked by the antioxidants which either scavenge the free radicals or block their synthesis. In vitro study of Amlaki, Haritaki & Bahera individually & collectively in Triphala shows potent (i.e. powerful/effective) antioxidant activity either by scavenging or by inhibiting the free radicals.” (BOSE et. al., 2011, pp511-512)
“..… Amlaki, Haritaki, Bahera & Triphala as a whole show good amount of antioxidant activity & this activity increases with the increasing concentration. …..Antioxidants slow down the process of excess oxidation and protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. When cells are attacked by free radicals, excess oxidation causes damage and destroys cells. Antioxidants stop this process. The cellular damage caused by free radicals can be responsible for causing and/or accelerating many diseases. Triphala is rich in antioxidants and is recommended to guard against free radicals and protect from damaging excess oxidation. ……. This proven activity of antioxidant in this study will be very much helpful in modern medicine oxidative stress related diseases specially precancerous / premalignant conditions & thus helps in prevention of cancers. …… (Also) Triphala (is being) used for biliary disorders, diarrhea, dyspepsia, cough, renal problems, and hepatic disorders from ancient time.” (BOSE et. al., 2011, pp512-513)[ 5]
The health benefits of Yashtimadhu / Glycyrrhiza Glabra / Licorice Root in Arjun Paan:
Licorice root which is a perennial herb is up to 50 times sweeter than sugar.
- This licorice root helps to loosen and expel phlegm. Also it is a remedy for sore throat, cough and cold. It eases congestion from cough and cold. It helps to sooth irritated mucous membranes. “The German Standard License approves licorice root infusions for loosening mucus and alleviating discharge in bronchitis, while the British Herbal Compendium indicates the use of licorice root for bronchitis.” (Mercola, 2016, p1)[[vi]] .
- It helps to prevent growth of virus, bacteria and algae causing different illnesses and diseases. “Triterpenoid is one of the mainly active components of licorice. In recent years, the broad-spectrum antiviral activity of many triterpenoids in licorice was confirmed, and these findings have become a hot spot of antiviral immunity. The triterpenoids of licorice has the potential to become a novel broad-spectrum antiviral medicine and will be widely used in the clinical treatment.” (Pu et. al. 2013, p673)[[vii]].
- Licorice root help to relieve gastric ulcers and other forms of peptic ulcers by triggering releasing gel–forming mucins from stomach mucus membrane and strengthening stomach’s epithelial cells.(Johansson, 2013)[[viii]] “Licorice has antibacterial properties and has been found to help relieve stomach ulcers….. Germany’s Commission E approved the use of licorice root for treating ulcers.” (Mercola, 2016, p1) .
- Licorice roots relieve constipation by enhancing the contraction capacity of our colon in moving waste through. A clinical trial on 40 patients to investigate the effects of a herbal preparation containing licorice and other herbs (Lax-Asab) in treating chronic constipation has found that it significantly improved chronic constipation compared to a placebo. “Functional constipation is a common clinical complaint of patients with unsatisfactory treatment outcome. We designed this study to evaluate the efficiency of a traditional herbal preparation (Lax-Asab) in treating chronic constipation. …… Defecation difficulties improved significantly more in patients who received Lax-Asab than patients who received placebo. There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups with regard to the side effects observed. This study confirms the efficacy and tolerability of an Iranian herbal preparation, Lax-Asab, in treating patients with chronic functional constipation.” (Somi et al., 2015, p153)[[ix]].
