Hawthorn is traditionally known as "the heart plant" for its marked cardioprotective and antioxidant activity.
The leaves and flowers contain a mixture of different flavonoids, powerful antioxidants, useful in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and to fight cholesterol. These active ingredients confer a marked cardioprotective activity, because they induce the dilation of the coronary arteries that carry blood to the heart, thus improving the flow of blood with a consequent reduction in blood pressure.
Hawthorn is used to reduce tachycardia, extrasystole and arrhythmias and prevent complications in elderly patients, at risk of angina pectoris or heart attack, suffering from influenza or pneumonia.
