Hawthorn Extract



Hawthorn extract is good for the heart! The best-known herb for the heart in western herbalism is hawthorn, which is a small tree or shrub that grows throughout the northern hemisphere. Native to northern Europe, hawthorn grows throughout the world. The red berry-like fruits contain many powerful substances. Hawthorn berries belong to the same family of plants as apples and roses, which is why they are bright red in color. And like roses, the berries are accompanied by long, woody thorns that can be quite hazardous, if not carefully handled.

Today, hawthorn is an official drug in the Pharmacopoeias of Brazil, China, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Hungary, Russia, and Switzerland. As a measure of its lasting popularity, it is an ingredient of 213 commercial European herbal formulas, which are mostly for the treatment of heart and cardiovascular ailments.

✿ strengthen heart muscle
