Additional Information About Hawthorn Berry
Certified Organic Hawthorn Berry Powder. Easy to use, for encapsulation, as it is an 80 to 100 mesh size. Hawthorns compounds are flavonids--like complex of oligomeric procyanidins, which are responsible for the cardiac action attributed to the plant. This is partly due to hawthorns ability to inhibit a substance in the body known as angiotensin-converting enzyme.
As a side note: Hawthorn berries were documented the Greek Herbalist Dioscorides and later by the Swiss physician Paracelsus. According to Christian legend, the Crown of Thorns was believed to be made of hawthorn. Because of this, the herb was thought to possess miraculous healing properties. In ancient Greece, hawthorn was a symbol of hope and happiness, while in Rome, it was considered a mighty amulet.
