      Hawthorn health benefits

      Records indicate that Hawthorn has been used as a tonic for the cardiovascular system and in the treatment of heart disease for at least 2000 years. Recent clinical studies have also demonstrated Hawthorn's remedial properties in the treatment of heart failure

      It is believed that Hawthorn works in a normalising way on the heart either stimulating or depressing its activity depending on the need

      Hawthorn can be used for

      Heart disease

      Heart failure


      High blood pressure




      While hawthorn can be effective in treating these conditions it is essential that professional advice is taken before treating heart related illness.


      Contraindications and side effects

      Hawthorn is considered safe for most adults when used for short periods of time. Side effects are usually mild and can include upset stomach, headache, and dizziness.

      Drug interactions with hawthorn have not been thoroughly studied. It was once thought that hawthorn interacted with the heart medicine digoxin. However, a very small study in people without heart conditions found no interaction, but evidence is limited.


      Adult tincture dosage:


      Based on a (1:3) tincture take 2ml to 4ml three times a day
