Description

Latin Name: Crataegus Monogyna

Origin Country: Bulgaria

Hawthorn,  or otherwise Crataegus Monogyna is known for its cardiotonic properties. Hawthorn’s cardioprotective action is due to the flavonoids, triterpenes and antioxidant amines it contains. The total complex of plant constituents is considered valuable as a remedy for those with circulatory and cardiac problems.

It is believed to regulate and support these systems and be beneficial to use in the following conditions:

  • It could give relief from cramp-like symptoms.
  • Mild congestive heart failure. Believed to increase cardiac output and increase the flow of blood through the coronary arteries.
  • Arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) – Thought to counteract rhythm disturbances. High blood pressure – Believed to cause vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels and lower blood pressure.
  • Nervous Heart Disorders (palpitations) – Believed to have a sedative effect on the nervous system which may render it useful in heart conditions where the nerves are involved.
  • Heart Weakness – as caused by infectious diseases e.g. pneumonia, scarlet fever and diphtheria. Is believed to restore and support heart function.
  • Encourage concentration and memory function as it improves circulation of blood and oxygen to the brain
To make an infusion, place 1-2 teaspoons of dried herb in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10 'to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve. Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day. Add if you want honey, milk or lemon wedge for flavour.
Hawthorn is generally considered safe to use short-term (up to 16 weeks), but possible side effects may include nausea, stomach upset, fatigue, sweating, headache, dizziness, palpitations, nosebleeds. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using any herb especially if you have health problems.
