Hawthorn for the Heart
The month of February focuses on the importance of Heart Health since it can have such an impact on your overall wellbeing.
Perhaps the most well-known herb for heart health is Hawthorn. It is a gentle nourishing herb that supports and strengthens the cardiovascular system.
Because it is rich in procyanidins, it protects the arteries and veins and increases coronary circulation.
Clinically, it dilates the arteries that supply the heart with blood, oxygen and fuel. By doing so, the heart can be better supplied with essential nutrients it needs for optimal health. By taking Hawthorn regularly, you can develop a stronger, more efficient and steady heartbeat. In addition, Hawthorn acts as an antioxidant to protect the heart against free-radical damage.
Hawthorn also has mild sedative properties which can be helpful for nervousness, restlessness, anxiety, irritability, sleep issues, inflammation and even allergies.
Since Hawthorn does not contain any cardiac glycosides, it can be used safely alongside other heart medications. Like many other herbal tonics, Hawthorn works slowly and can safely be taken long-term without leading to any dependency.
In today’s world with our overwhelming stress and anxiety, it is comforting to know that nature has provided us with such a gentle, safe and effective cardiovascular supporter.
