Product Description

Hawthorn Leaf & Flower (Crataegus laevigata) Tincture

In the early 1800s, American doctors were using Hawthorn it to treat circulatory disorders and respiratory illnesses. Traditionally, the berries were used to treat heart problems ranging from irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, chest pain, hardening of the arteries, and heart failure. Today, the leaves and flowers are used medicinally, and there is some research that suggests that hawthorn might be effective when used in the treatment of mild to moderate heart failure. Hawthorn is a trusted cardiac tonic that is used to reduce cholesterol and significantly enhance blood circulation to the heart and brain. Hawthorn extract is one of few herbs which might enhance ejection fraction, particularly when coupled with CoQ10 and physical exercise. The hawthorn berries can be achieved into an herbal decoction, which may be utilized just as one astringent gargle for sore throats plus an herbal douche for ladies impacted by extreme vaginal discharges. Hawthorn has been shown to help as a sleep aid, and boosts restful sleep. 
 
This wonderful herb is thought to be especially effective in the beginning stages of heart disease, as well as speeding up the recovery time after a heart attack. It is also believed to strengthen a weak heart muscle associated with age, relieve pressure and tightness of the chest, ease angina and myocarditis (inflammation of the heart), as well as mild cardiac arrhythmia. Hawthorn Berry is widely regarded in Europe as a safe and effective herbal treatment for the early stages of heart disease and is endorsed by Commission E that studies and approves this herbal remedy. The bioflavonoids found in Hawthorn interact with key enzymes in the heart to increase the pumping force of the heart muscle is one of the most valuable herbs for the heart and circulation.  
 
This herbal supplement helps to reduce high blood pressure caused by hardening of the arteries and kidney disease. It has the ability to both lower high blood pressure and to bring low blood pressure back to normal. Studies suggest that Hawthorn Berry can be taken safely by people with hypertension who are also taking blood pressure medications.
 
Another benefit of Hawthorn liquid extract is that it harbors potent antioxidant properties, which are believed to exert cholesterol lowering effects and reduce the accumulation of fatty plaque in the arteries and improved blood flow to the heart. It has been used for the treatment of spasms of the arteries (as with Reynaud's disease). Hawthorn reduces cholesterol and is believed to help regulate blood pressure (both high and low). 
 
ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) may be helped by the use of Hawthorne. By increasing blood circulation to the brain and stopping inflammatory responses caused by allergies, the herb is believed to have a sedative effect on the central nervous system. People who suffer from anxiety, strain, pressure and tension benefit from Hawthorn because of its mild sedative properties. The sedative effect has also been used to treat insomnia and nervous tension. Hawthorn herbal remedies also provide a highly effective relaxing impact on the functioning of the nervous system, the herb helps with reducing extreme anxiety and stress, it will help in soothing mental frustration, it reduces restlessness along with decreases nervous palpitations.
 
Hawthorn Berry's high vitamin C content helps to strengthen tiny capillaries in the brain, opening them and resulting in more nutrients and oxygen reaching the brain. And in combination with Ginkgo, Hawthorn stimulates blood circulation to the brain, and herbalists have long used it to treat age-related forms of memory problems. Improved capillary health is also known to relieve conditions such as blood shot eyes, glaucoma, hemorrhoids, swollen ankles and varicose and spider veins. 
 
Hawthorn Berry may be of great help for arthritis and osteoporosis. Hawthorn is said to stabilize the collagen in the bone itself, thereby helping to counter osteoporosis. Hawthorn has a chemical action that helps tone down inflammation. And while helping to protect collagen, it may slow down the progression of chronic inflammatory disease. It also helps protect cells from premature aging. 
 
Hawthorn is a powerful antioxidant which helps to destroy free radicals in the body. Free radicals are naturally occurring molecules which cannot be avoided; however, their presence is increased by environmental pollutants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, ultraviolet light, radiation and even some prescription and non-prescription medications. Free radicals enter the body, destroy healthy cells and damage genetic material, increasing the likelihood of cancer and speeding the natural aging process.
 
Some research has claimed that this herb may be effective against certain serious diseases. Its rutin content is a bioflavonoid that appears to accelerate the death of leukemia cells and Burkitt's lymphoma and may also deactivate plasmin, a chemical that allows cancerous growths to spread throughout the body.  The proanthocyanidins in the Berry "possess a higher degree of polymerization, a characteristic that reportedly increases antioxidant activity."
