Solaray Hawthorn Extract
Hawthorne Berry (crataegus oxyacantha) is also known by the names Haw, May Blossom, May Day Flower, and White Thorn. It is an herb that comes from the hawthorne shrub, which can grow up to 40 feet tall. The hawthorne shrub is a spiny tree that is indigenous to the Mediterranean region. The berries on the hawthorne shrub are usually bright red.
Since the 19th century hawthorne berries have been used to support the heart, and to maintain cardiovascular functions. In Europe, it is one of the most popular herbs today and is growing in popularity in the United States. Hawthorne berry helps support the arterial walls, can dilate (enlarge) coronary blood vessels (the vessels supplying the heart with vital oxygen, blood, and nutrients), and strengthens the heart's pumping ability.
Hawthorne berry can also be used to help with weight loss. It can help reduce water retention by expelling excess salt from the body. This herb can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and aid digestion. It can also be used to support joint lining, collagen, and spinal discs.
