Hawthorn has long been used as a natural treatment for cardiovascular, respiratory, and circulatory diseases. The berries were considered beneficial for various heart conditions including heart failure, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, atherosclerosis, and hypertension. Hawthorn is rich in plant compounds called flavonoids, oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs), and quercetin. There has been considerable research into the plant's effects on coronary illnesses. Hawthorn extract can help ease arrhythmia and palpitations, enhance the health of blood vessels, control glucose levels, and diminish the danger of hypertension. Drinking Hawthorn tea daily can be beneficial to some, but always discuss the addition of this herb with a doctor before proceeding.
