Hawthorn | Crataegus laevigata | Crataegus oxyacantha |

 

 

Hawthorn has traditionally been used as a natural remedy for*:

Heart disease

Heart failure

Angina

High blood pressure

Arteriosclerosis

Palpitations

 

While hawthorn can be effective in treating these conditions it is essential that professional advice is taken before treating heart related illness.

 

Contraindications and side effects

Hawthorn is considered safe for most adults when used for short periods of time. Side effects are usually mild and can include upset stomach, headache, and dizziness.

Drug interactions with hawthorn have not been thoroughly studied. It was once thought that hawthorn interacted with the heart medicine digoxin. However, a very small study in people without heart conditions found no interaction, but evidence is limited.

 

Adult tincture dosage:

 

Based on a (1:3) tincture take 2ml to 4ml three times a day

 

Don't use tablets always use herbal remedy tinctures
