Hawthorn - Botanical Support for the Heart
Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) is a small thorny tree with white flowers and red berries.
Hawthorn originated on the hillsides and sunny slopes of England, Europe, and
North America.Hawthorn has been the subject of botanical writings since as early
as the first century A.D. Herbalists traditionally used all parts of the hawthorn
plant, which has been regarded as the most important cardiac tonic in both Chinese
and Western herbalism. A syrup of hawthorn berries was reportedly used as a heart
tonic by the private physician of King Henry IV of France.
Research Validates Traditional Beliefs
Today modern research is confirming traditional beliefs about hawthorn. Hawthorn
has been shown in animal studies to positively influence the contraction of heart
muscle. More significantly, 14 clinical studies on humans have shown positive
results for cardiovascular health. Hawthorn's bioflavonoids have documented antioxidant
activity, which is vital for protecting the heart from the ravages of free radicals.
