Hawthorn

Crataegus monogyna

Hawthorn (berry, leaf and flower) has been well researched for supporting many different aspects of heart function and cardiovascular system health. This includes weak tone of the heart muscle, angina, rapid heartbeat, enlarged heart, mitral valve prolapse, venus stasis and varicose veins. Hawthorn lowers cholesterol levels while preventing plaque buildup in the arteries and it mildly lowers blood pressure. It calms the nervous system and may reduce stress and anxiety. Hawthorn is native to Northern Europe.
