Hawthorn ~ So Good for You

Do you have poor circulation? Heart issues, like angina? High blood pressure? Do you need a memory booster? Then you might just want to keep reading . . . 
Hawthorn has been used for centuries for such ailments and has a long list of documented successes.* In the last two centuries, hawthorn has been used especially for heart and blood pressure issues. The Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine says, "Western herbalists consider it literally to be 'food for the heart,' increasing blood flow to the heart muscles and restoring normal heartbeat. Recent research has confirmed the validity of these uses." 
Both the flowers and the berries can be used, though most people will use the berries of this lovely tree. 

Hawthorn is also loaded with the bioflavonoid: quercitin, which is a top-notch product for those (like THE Man and DD#2) who suffer from allergies, asthma and sinusitis. Keeping things open and working as it should is something that hawthorn does so very well. 

And that's exactly why it works so well with for angina and coronary artery disease,* because it increases blood flow to the heart and slows down the degeneration of the blood vessels that feed the heart
As for correcting blood pressure, hawthorn has the amazing ability to correct BOTH high AND low blood pressure. It is amazing, indeed. 

And as I said earlier here, and to so many of my customers, once you get your veins opened and your blood flowing as it should, many other things are improved as well. Another problem that is improved by good blood flow is your memory. And if you are anywhere near your peri-menopause or menopausal years, you know that your memory can just do flip-flops . . . if it even shows up! With good blood flow to the brain comes a better supply of oxygen, which clears the cobwebs of "memory fog." 
Hawthorn can be taken in several different ways: capsules, teas and tinctures. Liquids (teas and tinctures) will always get into your system quicker than capsules/pills and are great to build a strong foundation for long-term use. If you do wish to use it long-term, once your foundation is laid by using a tea or tinctures for a few weeks, switch to capsules. (Gymnema is a good partner for blood sugar issues.)*

What wondrous, healthful things the Lord has given us.
