What is Hawthorn Berry Extract?

Hawthorn Berry Extract Benefits：
1.Hawthorn and Heart Health
Cardiovascular disease is the most common reason for doctor’s visits, hospitalization and death in the United States. More than 600,000 people die each year of heart disease.
Hawthorn berries contain phytonutrients including anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins — antioxidants that strengthen blood vessel walls. They may also reduce symptoms of congestive heart failure, irregular heartbeat, arrhythmia, low blood pressure, angina, atherosclerosis and high cholesterol.
Research suggests that hawthorn berry extract significantly benefits heart health when compared to a placebo. In one study, researchers gave 78 patients with heart failure 200 mg of hawthorn three times daily for two months. At the end of the trial, patients experienced an improvement in working heart capacity and a reduction of their heart disease symptoms. In fact, hawthorn berry was nearly as effective as prescription heart medication in reducing symptoms — and it had fewer side effects.
2.Lowers Blood Pressure & Cholesterol
Hawthorn extract can also keep your heart healthy by lowering blood pressure. In one study, scientists gave 79 patients with type 2 diabetes either 1,200 mg of hawthorn extract daily or a placebo. At the end of the 16-week study, participants who took hawthorn had a greater reduction in blood pressure than those who did not.
Additionally, studies suggest that hawthorn berry extract helps lower “bad” (LDL) cholesterol levels and triglycerides.
3.Reduces Angina Symptoms
Often confused with indigestion, angina is the technical term for chest pain. It’s caused by decreased blood flow to the heart and is often a symptom of heart disease.
Studies suggest that the bioflavonoids (plant compounds) in hawthorn can reduce angina by dilating and relaxing blood vessels, which promotes healthy circulation. They also improve blood flow to the heart and reduce tension in your blood vessel walls, which helps prevent chest pains.
4.Hawthorn and Digestion
People have been using hawthorn berry extract to treat gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea and indigestion as far back as the first century. Today, studies suggest that hawthorn improves digestion by promoting gastrointestinal motility — the contraction of muscles that move food through your digestive system. Hawthorn may also support the production of enzymes that ensure you absorb nutrients properly for optimal health.
5.Hawthorn as Topical Treatment
People have applied hawthorn berry extract topically to help treat itching, boils, sores, ulcers and frostbite. However, there are not enough studies to confirm these claims.
