Hawthorn Berries (Circulatory) have long been used around the world for many different purposes, including jellies and flours.

At one time Christianity regarded the plant as sacred, due to the belief that it furnished Christ’s crown of thorns.
Hawthorn is especially popular in Europe, where it is used in a number of herbal tinctures, herbal combinations and teas. The berries’ effects on the circulatory system have been researched in Europe. Certain chemical constituents in the berries seem to enhance enzyme metabolism and oxygen utilization in the heart muscle. The berries should be taken over a period of time for their full nutritional benefits to be realized.
Hawthorn Berries contain vitamins C and B complex, crataegin, carotene, flavonoids and sugars.
