Info: 200 ml Bottle
Hawthorn has been used in Herbal Medicine for a very long time to help maintain and/or support cardiovascular health in adults. Some studies have found to be able to act as a tonic: to help relax the heart, lower the diastolic blood pressure in some (those with type II diabetes), and help produce a more regular heart beat, likely because its berries contain many flavonoids, including catechin, quercetin, and rutin. It's widely used in Europe by those with the initial stages of heart failure, and a systematic review* of studies on it as an adjunct to other treatments found it could reduce shortness of breath and fatigue, enhance the heart's ability to use oxygen, and improve the heart's maximum workload and ability to tolerate exercise.
