Hawthorn berries, or “haws” as they’re often called, are used for both medicinal and culinary purposes. More importantly, they’re loaded with bioflavonoids, proanthocyanidins and other antioxidants, making hawthorn particularly effective for cardiovascular care. Also, known as food for the heart, these powerful little berries can do wonders for your heart.
Hawthorn is ideal for those who have a family history of heart disease. When used in conjunction with a healthy diet and stress management, hawthorn is an effective long-term treatment for cardiovascular health. Additionally, it is not habit forming, accumulative or toxic. Hawthorn has been extensively studied in people with heart failure, showing positive results. Studies published in Pharmacognosy Review suggest that hawthorn berries significantly improves heart function. It can also improve symptoms of fatigue and shortness of breath.
Hawthorn may help combat angina, caused by low blood flow to the heart. Research published in The Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge suggests that hawthorn dilates coronary blood vessels and improves blood flow. In addition, it strengthens heart muscles and helps to rid the body of excess salt and water.
