Hawthorne berry standardized extracts is an approved treatment for heart disease in Western Europe. Traditionally, the herb was used medicinally to treat digestive disturbances and insomnia. However, around the late 19th century European physicians discovered that the berries from hawthorne also harbored cardiotonic properties, meaning it benefited the heart.

Several heart and cardiovascular conditions such as:

  • Treat angina
  • Lower high blood pressure
  • Correct arrhythmia (irregular heat beat)
  • Relieve symptoms of congestive heart failure
  • Heart attack recovery
  • Heart disease prevention

Moreover, it is often prescribed in European herbal medicine as a premier cardiotonic to simply support normal heart functions.
