News Article: Hawthorn

Hawthorn, an herb from the Rosaceae family, is prized for its exceptional ability to strengthen the heart. The flowers, fruit and leaves of the Hawthorn plant are all used to dilate coronary blood vessels. Although its primary use is a cardiac tonic, secondary uses include nervous conditions, insomnia, and it can decrease fat deposit levels. Therefore this herb supports several areas in the body including the heart, nerves, stomach and blood.

Hawthorn strengthens the circulatory system in several ways. It prevents hardening of the arteries; increases oxygen utilization by the heart; increases enzyme metabolism in the heart muscle; works as a peripheral vasodilator; and prevents valvular insufficiency and an irregular pulse. Extended use of Hawthorn supplementation will also lower high blood pressure, as well as high cholesterol levels in the body.

A weakened immune system will also benefit greatly from this herb. Hawthorn is rich in phytochemicals including quercetin and rutin, and mineral rich containing chromium, essential fatty acids, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc and a complex of B vitamins.

Taken orally, Hawthorn has no recorded toxic effects. Suggested use - take two to three capsules three times daily, preferably with food. A standardized formula is best to ensure you are receiving active components. Hawthorn is not for use during pregnancy. For additional cardiovascular support, avoid saturated fats and salty foods, eat a high fiber diet, exercise 2 - 3 times a week, and supplement with magnesium and CoQ10.
