Hawthorn Berries is used to help promote the health of the circulatory system, help treat angina, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmia and has been found that it may help strengthen the heart.
Hawthorn is widely regarded in Europe as a safe and effective treatment for the early stages of heart disease and has been used to assist in a number of ailments including angina, myocarditis, arteriosclerosis, It has also been suggested that it could help strengthening blood vessels, vascular insufficiency and blood clots, restoring the heart muscle wall, lowering cholesterol and to aid digestion.
There is also (unsubstantiated) evidence of cardiovascular system improvement. This may be due to the herb's possible antioxidant activity.
In pharmacological tests, Hawthorn has been shown to improve the contractility of the heart muscle (which can lead to a stronger pumping action of the heart), increase cardiac performance and output, lower the peripheral vascular resistance (reducing the workload of the heart), steady the heartbeat (antiarrhythmic effect), as well as increasing the heart's tolerance to oxygen deficiency, such as might happen during stress or excitement, or in diseases where the arteries are partially blocked.
