Hawthorn is an all-around great heart tonic for long-term use in cardiac
pathology and for general preventative heart health. It is for virtually
all heart-related symptoms and is a great preventative of cardiac disease.
Procyanidins have been extensively studied and show cardiac efficacy,
but the whole full-spectrum extract shows efficacy where no one constituent
can replicate, so the full-spectrum extract is preferred. Hawthorn is a
famous, time-tested cardiac tonic for high blood pressure and high pulse
rates, angina pain, arrhythmia, and palpitations. It will help to increase
the cardiac output of blood volume and increase the efficiency of the
heart. It is indicated for cardiac insufficiency, increases cardiac work
tolerance, and decreases pressure and heart rate. It may help angina and
feelings of pressure and tightness. Anxious heart complaints including
palpitations may also be helped by Hawthorn. Obviously, any heart symptom
should be taken with the utmost concern and diagnosed by a competent health
care professional. Hawthorn does not replace cardiac medication by itself,
but along with lifestyle changes including diet, exercise, and stress
management, anything is possible.
Hawthorn is used to help protect against heart disease and help control high blood pressure
and as well as high cholesterol. Both animal and human studies suggest hawthorn increases coronary artery
blood flow, improves circulation, and lowers blood pressure. It has also
been used on the skin to treat boils and skin sores.
Animal and laboratory studies report hawthorn contains antioxidants,
including oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs, also found in grapes) and
quercetin. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals, which
are compounds in the body that damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and
even cause cell death. Free radicals occur naturally in the body and grow
in number as we age. Environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light,
radiation, smoking, some medicines, and air pollution) can also increase
the number of these damaging particles. Scientists believe free radicals
contribute to the aging process (such as wrinkling), as well as the
development of a number of health problems, including cancer and heart
disease. Antioxidants in hawthorn may help stop some of the damage from
free radicals, especially when it comes to heart disease.

Cardiac or heart disease is the leading cause of death in the USA. Taking a
heart tonic such as Hawthorn for many years is a wise idea. Combining it
with other healthy heart supplements such as Essential Fatty Acids, Garlic, and CoQ10 is a synergistic approach to heart health.
