Natural hawthorn drops
One of the most well-known properties of hawthorn is its cardioprotective action. It is often used to relieve symptoms such as palpitations, nervousness and arrhythmia. There is considerable evidence that it can be used in cases of congestive heart failure, but also in pressure problems (hypertension, hypotension), as well as in atherosclerosis, but further research is required.
A 2-year study of 952 people with heart failure found that those taking the hawthorn seed supplement received less fatigue, shortness of breath and palpitations than those who did not.
This property is due to the fact that it can improve the amount of blood pumped by the heart during contractions, dilate blood vessels and increase the transmission of nerve signals.
It seems that hawthorn can help in the effort to reduce total and LDL cholesterol. This is due to the increased secretion of bile, which leads to a decrease in cholesterol synthesis and enhancement of LDL receptors.
There is some evidence that hawthorn may help to better manage stress and anxiety. It seems to have a mild sedative effect, which is why it is often used in insomnia.
