A unique gift from nature hawthorn herb is most commonly used for diseases of the heart, blood and digestion, and has long been used in traditional herbal medicine for it's many health promoting properties.
Native to Europe and Asia, hawthorn has been well-loved and widely used for centuries, especially for its ability to tone the heart. One of the earliest references to the use of heart-helping hawthorn comes from Greek herbalist Dioscorides, in the first century A.D.
The tree itself is more like a tall, dense shrub, in some countries its common name translates to “hedge thorn” because of its fast-growing, thorny capacity to create living barriers.
Hawthorn can help improve the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during contractions, widen the blood vessels, and increase the transmission of nerve signals.
Hawthorn also seems to have blood pressure-lowering activity, according to early research. It seems to cause relaxing of the blood vessels farther from the heart. It seems that this effect is due to a component in hawthorn called proanthocyanidin.
Research suggests that hawthorn can lower cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad cholesterol”), and triglycerides (fats in the blood). It seems to lower accumulation of fats in the liver and the aorta (the largest artery in the body, located near the heart).
Hawthorn fruit extract may lower cholesterol by increasing the excretion of bile, reducing the formation of cholesterol, and enhancing the receptors for LDLs. It also seems to have antioxidant activity.
The hawthorn leaves and flowers in this tea are carefully hand-picked, ensuring that they meet high quality standards.
Contraindications: before taking hawthorn, talk with your healthcare professional if you take any medications. It has major interactions with several prescription medications.
