Hawthorn berries are loaded with a wide variety of powerful antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress and tissue damage in the body. The unique blend of antioxidants found in hawthorn comes from a group of phytonutrients (3). These include tannins, flavonoids, proanthocyanidins and phenolic acids. The standardization of hawthorn products is based on the total content of flavonoids (2.2%) and proanthocyanidins (18.75%).
Hawthorn berries have been well studied in people with congestive heart failure (4, 5). Five of the six large studies conducted found dramatically improved symptoms (such as shortness of breath and fatigue).
One study showed that hawthorn (taken at 900 mg/day) for 2 months was as effective as low doses of captopril (leading heart medication) in improving common symptoms associated with congestive heart failure(6).
The unique antioxidant mixture in Hawthorn creates a powerful vasodilating effect. It works to improve the endothelial function of the blood vessel to where the vessel is able to open with less resistance. This provides greater blood flow in working tissues and improves oxygen utilization. This is primarily due to the flavonoids rutin and vitexin together with the proanthocyanins (7, 8).

Hawthorn improves heart cell metabolism and increases the flow of electrolytes across the heart cells. This prevents or corrects heart rhythm abnormalities and strongly encourages a healthy heart rhythm.
Hawthorne contains flavones that improve the function of certain heart enzymes. This effect increases the heart’s contractile force, which effectively increases stroke volume while increasing the heart’s tolerance for hypoxic conditions (9). It also improves the heart’s ability to create energy through anaerobic metabolism which improves the heart’s ability to withstand stress.
Hawthorn also works to inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). Elevated ACE causes an increase in angiotensin II and systemic vasoconstriction. This process increases blood pressure.
By modulating ACE levels, Hawthorn helps normalize blood pressure and reduce stress on the cardiovascular system. The body usually takes two to four weeks to adjust to hawthorn and have a lasting effect on blood pressure (10, 11, 12).

Hawthorn also helps protect joints with its unique blend of antioxidants. These phytonutrients ward off specific classes of free radicals known to damage tissue collagen resulting in arthritis. Natural remedies that support healthy collagen improve the health of joints, skin, hair and nails.
When you get hawthorn berries, be sure to get the whole plant – leaves, flowers and berries. The berries contain more proanthocyanins while the flowers and leaves contain more vitexin. The most effective way to consume hawthorn if you are unable to obtain it fresh is in dried and ground form. Here is the dried version and here is a combination of hawthorn with its cousin hibiscus in an organic tea
Have the fresh plant or dried form in shakes or tea and eat daily. Due to its antioxidant and cardiovascular boosting effects it is great to use before/after exercise. This improves exercise recovery by improving oxygen flow and neutralizing free radicals from damaged tissue.

“Join my tribe today to discover hidden strategies to improve your energy, brain, digestion and metabolism.” – Dr. David Jockers A member of the Rose family, Hawthorn is considered to be one of the wildest, most sacred and enchanted trees, rich in folklore and legend. Botanically, this plant is part of the genus
Gnarled and thorny, this tree was planted in Roman times as a living hedge and fence for pastures; it is a tree that not only establishes boundaries, but also provides food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. The leaf, flower and berry are mostly used in herbal medicine.
Hawthorn leaves and flowers are gathered in the spring around Beltane, or May 1. Another name for hawthorn is Mayblossom, a nod to the time of year when the flowers bloom. The flowers are beautiful, but the smell is a little off-putting, as they are pollinated by flies and insects that are attracted to carrion (rotting flesh).

The berries are gathered in autumn when they are plump and juicy; their color can vary from bright red to deep purple-red. When gathering the berries, always make sure to leave some for the birds and other wildlife, as this is a valued food source as winter approaches.
Hawthorn promotes healthy heart and circulatory function.* It also has a long history of use to support the emotional heart. It has been used to face heartbreak of all kinds, and to help open the heart to forgiveness.* The thorns are often worn as talismans.
Hawthorn was historically used in celebrations of marriage, fertility and the abundance of spring, so there are many myths and stories surrounding this tree. One of our favorites is the Welsh tale of Olwen, who is said to have wandered the empty universe, leaving a white trail of hawthorn leaves that became the Milky Way.
Botanical description: The flowers are white with five petals and numerous stamens; berries are red to purplish red; stems have sharp thorns
