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.
