|Western Symptomology||Supports cardiovascular health. ****** Hawthorn has been traditionally used in Europe in to treat hypertension, coronary artery disease, angina and hypercholesteremia. Recent research has shown that a diet rich in polyphenols decreases cardiovascular risk by inhibiting low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation, which is a primary event in atherosclerosis plaque formation1. Clinical trials using hawthorn in patients with and without prescription hypotensive agents showed a marked decrease in blood pressure as well as a decrease in clinical symptoms of fatigue, dyspnea and lack of vitality2,3,4. Hawthorn is also beneficial to patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and laboratory studies suggest that this may be due to improvement in the contractility of impaired myocardium5. A review of 9 different clinical trials designed to study the effect of hawthorn in patients with congestive heart failure concluded that â€œCrataegus is an effective and safe treatment for this indicationâ€6,7. The positive effect of hawthorn on a wide range of cardiac and circulatory conditions demonstrates the ability of this medicinal fruit to deliver plaque-fighting capabilities and improve cardiac tonicity. While many products increase blood circulation by elevating blood pressure, hawthorn is unique in that it increases circulation and simultaneously lowers blood pressure. Hawthorn fruit contains oligomeric procyanidins (OPCâ€™s), which are a class of nutrients in the polyphenol family. The berries also contain rutin (a flavonoid) and triterpene acids such as Vitexin, Crateagolic acid, Vitexin-O-Rhamnoside and Isovitexin. OPCâ€™s and other flavonoids help inhibit angiotensin-converting enzymes, causing vasodilation and hence, improve circulation and blood vessel integrity6. The antioxidants in hawthorn prevent further deterioration and reduce inflammation. Rutin and other flavonoids are thought to rebuild the collagen fibers in the outer layers of the blood vessels, which also strengthens them8. Hawthorn is also used to lower serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels.9|
