Hawthorn is an herb that has been used for thousands of years for a variety of purposes. It has found its greatest success as an aid for dealing with heart disease. The components of hawthorn exert their heart-helping actions in a number of ways. Hawthorn increases the force of heart contractions and blood flow, while reducing the demand for oxygen. It reduces deposits in the arteries, lowers blood pressure, reduces irregular heartbeats, reduces resting pulse rate and lowers cholesterol levels. Clinical trials with hawthorn have confirmed its beneficial effects on the heart, and have found that it can relieve symptoms associated with heart failure. It also increases exercise performance.
