Hawthorn is a herbal dietary supplement to support cardiovascular function. Hawthorn extract contains flavanoids which support blood vessel health. Each capsule contains 500mg of hawthorn‚ standardized to yield 10mg (2%) Vitexin.
Provides a therapeutic quantity of the flowering tops and berries of the Hawthorn tree‚ standardized to 2% vitexin. It is a rich source of bioflavonoids and has a very safe and effective historical use as a potent overall cardiovascular support formula. Hawthorn has been proven to improve the function of the heart and circulatory system.
• Hawthorn’s berries and flowering tops have been used for thousands ofyears as a natural solution for a variety of conditions including digestion‚ kidney and bladder stones and as a diuretic. Only recently have the cardioprotective benefits of hawthorn been recognized. Currently hawthorn is viewed as a primary support nutrient for cardiovascular health.
Research has proven in animal and human studies to support the effectiveness of Hawthorn extract in improving circulation by dilating coronary blood vessels. Dilation of these blood vessels consequently increases blood‚ and thus oxygen supply to the heart. Components of Hawthorn Extract have also been demonstrated to inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme‚ thus reducing blood vessel constriction.
How Does Hawthorn Work?
Hawthorn acts as a vasodilator‚ increasing blood supply to the heart and improving circulation to the extremities by decreasing arterial resistance. Hawthorn also has positive inotropic and beta-blocking effects‚ along with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. In rodent studies‚ hawthorn was effective in reducing blood sugar in diabetic rats. Human studies also show hawthorn to be affective in lowering blood pressure in patients with diabetes.
• Hawthorn for heart failure- Hawthorn leaf extract extended the lives of patients with congestive heart failure by about four months. These patients were already receiving medical treatment. The 2‚681-patient clinical trial tested the hawthorn extract known as WS 1442 against a placebo. Dr. Christian Holubarsh was lead investigator of the study that was sponsored by the Germany-based Dr. Willmar Schwabe Group. Hawthorn leaf extract is a natural antioxidant that has been used in parts of Europe to treat heart failure. Patients in the trial had severely impaired left ventricular function. The primary goal of the study was time to first cardiac event‚ defined as sudden cardiac death‚ death due to progressive heart failure‚ fatal and nonfatal heart attacks or hospitalization due to heart failure. Patients who received the hawthorn extract had a 20 percent reduction in cardiac-related deaths‚ which translated into four months of added survival time during the first 18 months of the study.
