One way to help better your heart is with Hawthorn. It helps to enhance your heart health and this could lead to a longer more productive life.
Kilham said there is a massive body of science on hawthorn, which looks like fat, red peppercorns.
“We know that it strengthens the heart; it makes the contractions of the heart more even,” he said. “It actually enhances the amount of blood that comes out of the aorta. And it also reduces the sort of skittishness of the heart. If you get a fright or a shock it will keep the heart beat more regular and steady. So this is real medicine.”
Hawthorn is widely used in Europe and the U.S. for strengthening the heart muscle, improving nerve function to the heart, making heartbeat more regular and improving blood flow, Kilham said.
If you have a weak heart, are over the age of 45 or just want to maintain good cardiovascular health – then taking a hawthorn supplement or drinking tea with hawthorn berries and leaves is a good idea, Kilham said. (Fox News)
