HAWTHORNE (Crataegus oxyacantha)

Hawthorn fruit has been used for heart disease and to tone the heart and circulatory system. It has also been used for digestive and kidney problems. More recently, hawthorn leaf and flower have been used as folk or traditional remedies for heart failure, a weakness of the heart muscle that prevents the heart from pumping enough blood to the rest of the body, which can lead to fatigue and limit physical activities. Hawthorn is also used for other heart conditions, including symptoms of coronary artery disease (such as angina).



Hawthorne is also good for regulating and strengthening the heart nd veins and digestion. Studies have shown that hawthorne is helpful for people that have or had heart-valve disease.



The hawthorn leaf and flower are used to make liquid extracts, usually with water and alcohol. Dry extracts can be put into capsules and tablets.
