Hawthorn Berry: Amazing Tea for Heart Health
Written by Eli Ben-YehudaOn April 5, 2020
What Is Hawthorne Berry?
Hawthorn is a flowering shrub that is part of the Rosaceae, or rose, family. It is native to northern Europe but now grows throughout the world. The red berry-like fruit of this spiny plant is sometimes called “haw,” and has been used for both medicinal and culinary purposes. Hawthorn berry was included in theU.S. Pharmacopeia until the 1930s. The leaves are edible as well.
Watch Dr. Meschino explain the proven ability of hawthorn to reduce high blood pressure and improve blood flow to the heart muscle.
How Hawthorne Berry Works
The berries have been used in traditional medicine since the first century, and contain phytonutrients called anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins, antioxidants that have a variety of therapeutic effects including strengthening the walls of blood vessels. Extracts of Hawthorn berries, leaves and blossoms also contain compounds that have a toning effect on the heart and vascular system. Hawthorn has been studied for its use in treating health concerns related to the heart and blood vessels.
This includes congestive heart failure, irregular heartbeat, chest pain, low and high blood pressure, angina, atherosclerosis, and high cholesterol. A meta-analysis based on data from 14 studies concluded that a hawthorn extract offers “significant benefit” as an adjunct to conventional treatment of chronic heart failure. Specifically, symptoms including shortness of breath and fatigue were significantly alleviated, compared to placebo treatment.
How To Steep The Tea
Place loose Hawthorne berries in your teapot. The general rule is one teaspoon of berries per cup of tea. You can use a tea infuser to contain the berries if you like, but because they’re rather large you will be able to later scoop them out of the water without an infuser.
Pour the boiling water into the teapot with the Hawthorne berries. Cover and let steep for 8 to 10 minutes. If you like weak tea, let the berries steep for less time — for strong tea, let the berries steep longer.
Scoop the Hawthorne berries out of the tea with a spoon. Pour the tea and enjoy.
Store the tea, if necessary, in the refrigerator once it has cooled. Tea shouldn’t be stored for more than 3 days.Tags:
