Hawthorn Extract 450mg (60 Capsules)

(Crataegus oxyacantha) (Standardized to 1.8-2% vitexin)

For Supporting Cardiovascular Health


Hawthorn Extract is used to support and tone the cardiovascular system. Based on the findings of a 2003 meta-analysis, hawthorn extract can be recommended as an adjunctive therapy to relieve symptoms in patients with chronic heart failure. It should not, however, replace standard therapy (Pittler, Schmidt & Ernst, 2003). In the same meta-analysis, hawthorn also reduced blood pressure-heart rate product (weighted mean difference, -20; 95% CI, -32 to -8; n=264 patients from 5 studies) (Degenring et al., 2003). Evidence indicates that it also improves left ventricular performance as measured by ejection fraction (Fong & Bauman, 2002).


Hawthorn has an effect of mildly dilating blood vessels, notably in the heart, which may reduce pain from chest pressure and tightness (Brixius et al., 2006; Blumenthal, Goldberg & Brinckman, 2000).


Taken alone, hawthorn has only a mild effect in reducing blood pressure; however, its vasodilating properties do relieve heart symptoms, and standardized extracts are approved by the German Commission E for several cardiovascular conditions (Blumenthal, Goldberg & Brinckman, 2000).
