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.
Very pleased with this tincture. I have been buying this from you for several years. No complaints ever.
Pleased as I was able to take advantage of an introductory offer. Efficient delivery. Pleased with product though surprised it did not have a tamperproof lid - but not really an issue for me.
