Latin name - Crataegus spp.
Herbal Tinctures are an alcohol and water based preparation that are a traditional and convenient way to take herbal remedies. The herb is steeped in a mixture of alcohol and water for a period of time before pressing. All the benefits of the herb are captured in the tincture.
I was advised by a herbalist to try Hawthorn berry tincture as my blood pressure was always high and I also had higher diabetes readings. After 4/5 weeks of taking my BP had dropped from 169/82. To 130/70 and my diabetes is within normal range
I am so pleased
A very good high quality product unlike so many others.
Having this remedy - 40 drops 3x a day has saved me from suffering memory loss, confusion and feeling like I was having dementia (I am in the middle of writing a book about my work - so not good!) These were the side effects of the low dose Beta Blockers I was on! A lower dose of Hawthorn did not do it for me and it had to be the berry not the flower. I had palpitations, an irregular heartbeat, a premature heartbeat, breathless at times and very weak. All these went after a few weeks of having Hawthorn instead of the Beta Blockers. I feel full of energy now. I am 75 and have been taking my Hawthorn daily for 2 1/2 years now, the only side effect is good health and fitness! It was first used to treat heart disease in the 1st Century, so well tested!! A VERY satisfied customer.
always fabulous service from Neal's Yard
Have used this tincture for so many years. Basically for high blood pressure, and also have prolapsed mitral valve. I took regularly and it kept me going.
But recently at health centre my BP was taken and it was found to be dangerously high. A GP was sent for and he prescribed me BP medication. I had avoided such medicines for years, but obviously that was a vast mistake. Now I am on medication my BP has normalized. But I can no longer take Hawthorn Tincture which I am very regretful about.
