Hawthorn Leaf & Flowers - Small Grade
Hawthorn looks beautiful in the gardens. However, hardly anyone knows that this plant with white and pale pink flowers has valuable medicinal properties.
Health benefits: It is the most valuable medicinal plant that contains phenolic acids, amines, phytosterols, vitamin C and B group, tannins, pectins and mineral salts. The hawthorn flower is equipped with flavonoid compounds that have a diastolic effect on the smooth muscles of the intestines, uterus, urinary tract and blood vessels. This effect is important for coronary vessels, because the flow of oxygenated blood to the heart muscle increases, which in turn contributes to the disappearance of shortness of breath and pain. In addition, the hawthorn flower contains procyanidins, which reduce blood pressure. It also affects the strength of myocardial contractions. By slowing their frequency, it makes the heart work more efficiently. The hawthorn flower also has a positive effect on the blood vessels of the brain. Fruits of this plant show similar properties, but they contain much less flavonoids and more procyanidins. They also have vitamin A and sugar alcohol.
Other use: Hawthorn is great in the cosmetics industry, and its properties make it more and more often found in creams, shampoos, soaps, toothpastes and bath preparations. It nourishes the skin, improving its circulation.
