Hawthorn and Cardiovascular Health
Hawthorn should walk the red carpet in the world of herbs. It is renowned throughout the history of herbal medicine for its amazing ability to support cardiovascular health in adults. The Hawthorn plant is actually a member of the rose family and can grow up to twenty-five feet tall! Most parts of the plant appear to have medicinal value, but the fruit, leaves and flowers are best known for their cardiovascular benefits. Hawthorn contains special compounds, including flavonoid glycosides and saponins, that help protect your heart and your entire circulatory system.
Hawthorn Beats Back Toxins
Researchers studying this herb and have discovered it contains an abundance of antioxidants, including oligomeric proanthocyanidins, the good stuff found in grape seeds and quercetin, found in citrus fruits. Antioxidants help the body to tackle the daily onslaught of pollution and toxins that we face in our environment. Toxins can cause oxidative stress in the body, which has been implicated in a plethora of health problems, including heart disease. In preliminary studies, antioxidants have demonstrated the ability to dilate and relax blood vessels, thus protecting them from damage and improving blood flow.
Hawthorn is Preventative Medicine
The fruit, leaves and flowers of Hawthorn were used in traditional herbal medicine to treat irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, chest pain, hardening of the arteries and heart failure. Today, Hawthorn is used as a preventative herb to help individuals support and maintain the healthy functioning of their cardiovascular systems. Researchers are studying the impact of Hawthorn on health issues that go far beyond the cardiovascular system, including memory loss, bone strength and stress management.
Orange Naturals Tincture Advantages
All Orange Naturals tinctures are made from organic or wild-crafted herbs. During our craft of tincture-making, our master herbalists ensure the magic of every herb is unleashed and each bottle bursts with the healing power of nature. Our naturopaths recommend herbal tinctures because they are metabolized quickly – rapid oral absorption allows the body to begin restoring health on every level. The body can absorb up to 98% of a tincture’s medicinal components because absorption takes place immediately in the mouth. In contrast, herbs taken in capsule or tablet form must first be broken down by the digestive system and thus absorption can be significantly lower and slower. With Orange Naturals herbal tinctures, you have found a medicinal version of liquid gold.
Adults 18 and over: take 2.5 ml of Orange Naturals Hawthorn, 2 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, heart-healthy drink!
For best results, take hawthorn on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
You need to take hawthorn for a minimum of 2 months before seeing benefits. Definitely get in touch with your healthcare practitioner if any of your symptoms continue or worsen.
