Hawthorn Berries - Nature's Herbal remedy for a Healthy Heart
Hawthorn berries have a long history of traditional use in Europe and North America as an herbal tonic. Modern scientific studies have identified a number of bioactive constituents, including OPCs (oligomeric procyanidins).* Many of these compounds have been found to possess powerful free radical scavenging activity.*
Support a healthy cardiovascular system and heart.
So what does that mean for you? Keep reading to find out the amazing benefits Hawthorn Berries can have for your heart health.
The connection between Hawthorn Berry and heart health has been known since the early 19th century. European doctors used Hawthorn to treat heart disorders because they observed how animals in the wild ate the berries to promote cardiovascular health. The first scientific evidence that Hawthorn can indeed help support a healthy cardiovascular system was published in 1878. In more recent years, numerous double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials have shown that oral supplementation with hawthorn extract can safely and effectively support healthy cardiovascular function.*
Here are some ways Hawthorn Berry can specifically benefit your heart health:
Helps maintain blood pressure levels already within the normal range* - High blood pressure puts unnecessary stress on your arteries and heart, which over time can lead to serious cardiovascular problems. Numerous studies show that hawthorn helps maintain already normal blood pressure levels.*
Helps support already healthy cholesterol levels* - Cholesterol is necessary for many important functions in the body, but too much “bad” cholesterol can lead to clogged arteries and heart problems. Fortunately, hawthorn has been shown to help reduce bad cholesterol while helping preserve good cholesterol levels.*
Aids in circulation* - Hawthorn helps improve circulation by dilating (opening) coronary arteries and decreasing peripheral vascular resistance (the force against which your arteries push blood through your circulatory system).* This facilitates an increase in blood flow to the heart muscle, which helps nourish it and promote healthy cardiac function.* You’ll also be happy to know that this herb has none of the negative side effects associated with conventional medications used for these purposes.
If you’re looking for a natural way to support your cardiovascular system, look no further than hawthorn berry! This delicious little fruit has been used medicinally for centuries and modern science has validated its many therapeutic properties. From maintaining already normal blood pressure levels to reducing bad cholesterol, hawthorn berry is a potent herbal remedy for keeping your heart healthy and strong. So next time you’re at the store, be sure to pick up some hawthorn berries – your heart will thank you!
