The humble and beautiful Hawthorn Berry enjoys a long and enduring history as the herb to strengthen your heart – both physically and emotionally. The berries were a favorite of the Native American Indians as a heart tonic and they also used them for gastrointestinal complaints.
One of the oldest known medicinal plants, Hawthorn was prescribed by the Ancient Greek physician Dioscorides in the first century AD as a remedy for heart problems, and by many prominent herbalists and physicians who came after him.
Hawthorn berry benefits include heart health, supports normalizing blood pressure and cholesterol, and gastroprotective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This bright red berry is widely used and accepted in Europe as a routine part of a heart healthy diet.
