Hawthorn's History: A flowering shrub, hawthorn (Crataegus oxyacantha) is a member of the rose family (Rosaecae) and native to northern Europe. It now grows worldwide, with most grown commercially in the UK and eastern Europe. It is also known as may blossom, may bush, white thorn, haw, hazels, English hawthorn, quickset and one-seed hawthorn, among others. The long-living hawthorn tree can grow to heights of 30 feet. It displays dark green leaves, pure white flowers, and fruits that hang in clusters. The tasty, red berry fruit, also called the "haw", has been used for candies, jellies and wines. It has been used an herbal remedy for centuries to uplift and strengthen the physical and emotional heart. In the Middle Ages, women were known to take hawthorn berry to heal a "broken heart." The leaves are also edible. Hawthorn played a role in folklore as well. It was thought to symbolize chastity and prosperity, so it was often incorporated into marriage wreaths and bridal decorations. Hawthorn's Traditional Herbal Use: Over the centuries, hawthorn berry was used for a variety of health concerns: digestive, kidney and even anxiety. It is its ability to support heart health, however, that has made hawthorn supplements popular today, specifically to support the walls of blood vessels. It delivers trace amounts of phytonutrients such as anthocyanidins, proanthocyanidins, and antioxidants for good heart health. The parts used include the leaves, twigs, spines, and flowers. Hawthorn berry was included in the U. S. Pharmacopeia until the 1930s and it has been the subject of numerous studies since then. Today, hawthorn berry tablets and hawthorn berry supplements are widely available at reputable health retailers. Hawthorn's Chemical Composition: Constituents of hawthorn include trace amounts of naturally occurring flavonoids, triterpenes, chlorogenic acid, saponins, phenolic acids, choline, lecithin, vitamins B-1 and B-2 along with Vitamin C. Hawthorn Tablets and Liquid Extract: Available in Hawthorn Berry 500 mg tablets and liquid extract form for those who have difficulty swallowing.
