Hawthorn berry, also known as Crataegus oxyacantha, has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat cardiovascular conditions. Recent research has shown that it possesses a range of benefits including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Hawthorn berry helps improve blood circulation by dilating blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes. It also contains flavonoids that promote the relaxation of smooth muscle cells in the heart, which reduces cardiac workload and improves oxygen supply to tissues.
Hawthorn is furthermore believed to help relieve anxiety and boost digestion, and is commonly recommended as a natural remedy for sleep disorders.
