Hawthorn Berry is know as "The Heart Herb". It strengthens tissue and eliminates inflammation making it great for the heart and vascular system. Hawthorn also aids in increasing circulation having a positive effect on blood pressure.

Taking Hawthorn Berry Extract everyday can help lower blood pressure.

Hawthorn can be taken in a few different ways:

Tea - Purchase Hawthorn Berry Tea and prepare according to tea box directions. This is the least expensive option but arguably the least effective too.

Liquid Extract - Hawthorn Berry Liquid Extract can be purchase at your local health store or online at vitamin & supplement stores. Typical dosage in 1-2 drops mixed a glass of water 3 times a day. This is the most expensive option for taking Hawthorn. You will pay around $8-$10 for a 1 ounce bottle of liquid extract but this should last a while since you take only a few drops a day.

Capsules - The easiest option unless you have a hard time swallowing pills. Hawthorn capsules can be found locally in stores like walmart for around $5 for 100 capsules. A typical dose is usually 1 capsule taken between 2 - 5 times daily. 100 capsules will usually last you anywhere from 20 - 50 days depending on your exact dose.

Do not take Hawthorn if your pregnant, nursing, dizziness occurs, have colitis, or ulcers. If you are taking heart medications or have a known heart condition consult your doctor before taking Hawthorn Berry.
