Hawthorn Berry offers support for healthy heart function. It is an antispasmodic (stops muscle spasms), and vasodilator (relaxes and expands the blood vessels). It helps strengthen the heart and helps to control high blood pressure, toning the entire circulatory system. This is a great herb to include in your regular supplemental regimen to prevent heart problems in the future. Hawthorn is a large flowering shrub with thousands of varieties. All are edible including the fruit, tender young leaves and flowers. The most common kind used medicinally is referred to as the common hawthorn and is distinguished by having a single seed in each fruit. The Bible talks about Hawthorn berry and its health benefits.
