Hawthorn improves blood flow in coronary arteries and blood vessels of the brain. It has an anti-atherosclerotic effect and may be used in cases of different cardiovascular disorders.
People haven’t always appreciated the healing properties of this plant, even though it belonged to the medical arsenal of an Ancient Greek doctor Pedanius Dioscorides already in 1st century BC. In 17th century an English phytotherapist Nicolas Kalnener recommended hawthorn as a remedy for kidney stones and heart failure. Hawthorn was used for the previous as well as for chest pains in the 19th century. Healing agents found in hawthorn by modern science have confirmed the beliefs of ancient phytotherapists. In modern medicine hawthorn is used as a heart tonic, improving metabolism in the heart muscles and its oxygenation. That results in normalized heart rhythm, increased contraction ability as well as increase of the blood amount pumped.
Hawthorn has a mild vasodilation effect on coronary arteries, therefore improving the heart muscle’s nutrient and oxygen supply. High content of bioflavonoids allows hawthorn to reduce the effects of the free radicals. Hawthorn also has a soothing effect and is known for normalizing sleep regimen.
It is important to keep in mind that hawthorn does not posess instant effects, therefore it will not normalize heart rhythm or provide pain relief right after intake. The supplement has a prolongued action and is perfect for prophylaxis and as part of a treatment plan of cardiovascular diseases. Hawthorn has no contraindications even in cases of long-term consumption. No unwanted effects have been noticed in combination with medical drugs used for treatment of cardiovascular disorders.
Hawthorn affects the action of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) – the main agent responsible for vascular contraction. Together with vasodilatory effect, it creates the conditions for mild decrease of arterial blood pressure and cardiac muscle pressure relief. Hawthorn’s action is unique because lowering of the blood pressure is achieved as a result of many different reactions taking place in the organism. Hawthorn has a vasodilatory effect on large bloodvessels, it increases the functional capacity of the heart and has a mild diuretic effect. During clinical trials, patients taking an antiparasitic agent containing hawthorn have shown stabilization of the heart rate, decreased chest pains and disappearance of shortness of breath. Some experiments suggest that hawthorn inhibits the formation of atherosclerotic plaques on arterial walls. It has a spasmolytic effect, optionally dilating coronary and cerebral arteries that allows this plant to be used to improve the oxygen and nutrient supply of the myocardium and brain neurons. The spasmolytic effect of the hawthorn is connected to its flavonoids and tripentene agents that affect the functions of the vascular walls. Consumption of supplements containing hawthorn improves lactation and eliminate the signs of dyspepsia in breastfed children.
Not all hawthorn species have healing properties. Species used in Optisalt products grow in the wild areas of Altai Mountains and their numbers are limited.
Motherwort is used in Bulgaria as a hemostatic remedy. Romanian phytologists recommend motherwort for treatment of Graves’ disease and epilepsy, English specialists use it in cases of hysterias and neuralgias. In the US and Canada, motherwort has superseded the popular valerian.
