Hawthorn is a common, thorny shrub that grows up to five feet tall on hillsides and in sunny wooded areas of North America, Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa. The Hawthorn plant produces small berries, called haws, which sprout each May after the flowers of the hawthorn plant bloom. Hawthorn berries are usually red when ripe, but may be much darker. Hawthorn leaves, while usually shiny, may grow in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Bioflavonoid complexes (including oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs), vitexin, quercetin, and hyperoside) found in the leaves, flowers, and berries of hawthorn are believed to be responsible for the herbs positive health benefits. Hawthorn is well know for the cardiac benefits it provides, including improved coronary artery blood flow as well as improved blood flow in the extremeties.
Hilde Hemmes Hawthorn Traditional Herbal Tea may also be helpful when used in connection with other conditions such as angina, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and some arrhythmias. It is believed by some professionals that chemicals in hawthorn may act directly on the heart muscle to increase the force of heartbeats and to relax the arteries around the heart. Hawthorn may also work indirectly by widening blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. As a result, it may assist in stabilizing blood pressure.
Based on evidence provided by clinical trials it has been confirmed that hawthorn extracts benefit individuals with early-state congestive heart failure.
About Hilde Hemmes Traditional Herbal Tea
Over thousands of years, humans have discovered which plants have beneficial value, which may be used as food, and which should be avoided. This vital information has been recorded in ancient herbal manuscripts and passed on by word of mouth from generation to generation.
Today, many people are excited to rediscover the fascinating history of herbs and to enjoy their beneficial properties. Enjoying traditional herbal teas is one way that people can reconnect with the past and appreciate just how much nature has to offer.
Over the years I have collected many rare, out-of-print books on herbs and their uses, and have discovered many valuable recipes and ancient formulae that may otherwise have been forgotten.
Herb teas do not contain true tea leaves, but the carefully selected flowers, berries, peels, seeds, leaves and roots of selected herbal plants. These parts of the herbal plants are chosen for their natural aromatic actives and special flavours.
Using herbs to care for yourself and your family is an empowering experience - it allows you to tap into the power of nature. I know you will enjoy the positive contribution that herbs can make in your life.
Herbal teas are best stored at about 20ºC, away from direct sunlight and in a dry environment.
Dosage of Hilde Hemmes Hawthorn Traditional Herbal Tea
Traditionally, a hot infusion is one of the simplest ways to prepare most dried herbs for use as a tea. To prepare each hot infusion, take one heaped teaspoonful of the herbs and pour one cup of boiling water over them. Cover the cup with a lid or saucer. Allow the mixture to steep for 3-5 minutes and strain before using.
A decoction is the method used for herbs such as roots, bark, twigs and berries. To prepare a decoction, take one heaped teaspoonful of herbs and place them in a saucepan with one cup of cold water. Bring the mixture to the boil, simmer for 10-15 minutes (longer if the roots are very hard) and strain before drinking.
If not using the tea straight away, you can store Hilde Hemmes Hawthorn Traditional Herbal Tea in a covered jug or container in the fridge for up to 24 hours and gently warm the mixture before drinking.
