The Benefit of using Hawthorn Berries as a natural cure

Hawthorn berries or flowering tops can be used to treat a wide range of problems associated with the circulatory system. This herb improves the function and health of the heart, it makes the peripheral blood supply to the hands and feet more plentiful, and it slightly lowers blood pressure. It can speed the recovery from a heart attack and stroke. It can be taken alongside orthodox medication under the supervision of a herbalist, but it is not always compatible with heart or high-blood-pressure drugs. For the purpose of self-prescribing I would recommend using it for poor circulation and slightly raised blood pressure.
