How Hawthorn Berries Can Aid In Healing and Relieving Heart Problems
Hawthorn is an amazing healing plant that is widely regarded in Europe as an effective treatment for the early stages of heart disease. It is used to treat high blood pressure, arrhythmia, and congestive heart failure. In many parts of the world, over time, it has been considered an effective natural treatment for circulatory and heart problems in general.
Hawthorn (the Crataegus species) is known to have been used to treat heart disease as early as the first century. This amazing plant has a long history of use as a medicinal. In more modern times, American physicians were already using hawthorn to treat circulation problems and respiratory illnesses around the beginning of the 19th century.
In herbal medicine tradition, hawthorn berry tea has been used to to help relieve angina, which is pain in the chest associated with a restriction of blood flow to the heart. Modern day studies of hawthorn plant leaves and flowers have shown they can help provide some relief to symptoms of congestive heart failure, such as fatigue and shortness of breath.
Hawthorn contains many naturally occurring antioxidant flavonoids (including OPC’s) that may provide benefit to the heart. OPC’S are antioxidant compounds that consist of bioflavonoids (give fruits and vegetables their color) and polyphenols (super antioxidants found in red wine, green tea, blueberries, and other plant sources). These antioxidants can neutralize damaging free radicals and have the potential to reduce or possibly prevent the damage they cause. They can assist in improving blood flow as well as protect blood vessels from damage.
Hawthorn is available commercially in capsules and liquid extracts. It is also found as a tincture. An effective hawthorn tea can be made from dried plant parts, but it is a little bit bitter tasting. Below, you will see some recipes for hawthorn remedies that you can make at home.
