What is Hawthorn?

Common Names—hawthorn, English hawthorn, harthorne, haw, hawthorne
Latin Names—Crataegus laevigata (also known as Crataegus oxyacantha), Crataegus monogyna
What Hawthorn is used for?
The property sought in hawthorn is its soothing capacity, which helps to relieve night time coughs. It also helps to regulate blood pressure. In addition to the heart, hawthorn also has a beneficial effect on the central nervous system, helping to reduce nervousness in adults and children, limiting sleeping disorders and helping to control heart rate problems.
The main property of this plant is its ability to regulate the heart rate: it combats over-rapid heart rates and excessive heart beat perception and also helps to regulate blood pressure in hypertensive patients. Hawthorn also has a beneficial effect in another area, however: the central nervous system. It reduces nervousness in adults and children, eases sleeping disorders and improves heart rate disorders, without any addictive effect.
Hawthorn fruit has been used for heart disease since the first century. It has also been used for digestive and kidney problems.
More recently, hawthorn leaf and flower have been used for heart failure, a weakness of the heart muscle that prevents the heart from pumping enough blood to the rest of the body, which can lead to fatigue and limit physical activities.
Hawthorn is also used for other heart conditions, including symptoms of coronary artery disease (such as angina).
How Hawthorn Is Used?
The hawthorn leaf and flower are used to make liquid extracts, usually with water and alcohol. Dry extracts can be put into capsules and tablets.
