Hawthorn and Cardiovascular Health
Hawthorn should walk the red carpet in the world of herbs. It is renowned throughout the history of herbal medicine for its amazing ability to support cardiovascular health in adults. The hawthorn plant is actually a member of the rose family and can grow up to twenty-five feet tall! Most parts of the plant appear to have medicinal value, but the fruit, leaves and flowers are best known for their cardiovascular benefits. Hawthorn contains special compounds, including flavonoid glycosides and saponins, that help protect not only your heart but your entire circulatory system.
Hawthorn Beats Back Toxins
Researchers have been keen to study this herb and have discovered that it contains an abundance of antioxidants including oligomeric proanthocyanidins, the good stuff found in grape seeds and quercetin, which is found in high amounts in citrus fruits. Antioxidants help the body to tackle the daily onslaught of pollution and toxins that we face in our environment. Toxins can cause oxidative stress in the body, which has been implicated in a plethora of health problems including heart disease. In preliminary studies, antioxidants have demonstrated the ability to dilate and relax blood vessels, thus protecting them from damage and improving blood flow.
Hawthorn is Preventative Medicine
The fruit, leaves and flowers of hawthorn were used in traditional herbal medicine to treat irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, chest pain, hardening of the arteries and heart failure. Today, hawthorn is used as a preventative herb to help individuals support and maintain the healthy functioning of their cardiovascular systems. Researchers are studying the impact of hawthorn on health issues that go far beyond the cardiovascular system, including memory loss, bone strength and stress management.
