Treat Hypertension With Hawthorn

By Tuesday, 16 April 2019 04:26 PM Current | Bio | Archive

When blood pressure is elevated, there are safe, natural ways to lower it. An extract from the hawthorn plant lowers mild to moderate hypertension, as well as relieving mild and moderate heart failure.

Hawthorn leaves and flowers contain antioxidants such as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), which are also known to strengthen blood vessels.

The advantage of hawthorn is that it not only lowers blood pressure (by dilating the vessels), but at the same time it makes the heart muscle stronger.

In addition, its powerful antioxidants help protect the walls of the major blood vessels from lipid peroxidation damage.

In most studies involving patients with difficult-to-control blood pressure, the dosages of conventional drugs were significantly lowered when they were given hawthorn extract.

Personally, I remember one gentleman coming to me for something to control his very high blood pressure, which remained uncontrolled even after his doctors put him on a mixture of antihypertensive medications.

I suggested hawthorn extract along with reduced doses of his medications.

He returned in two weeks and told me that for the first time in 10 years his blood pressure was normal.

Like all other natural treatments, hawthorn extract should only be taken with the help and consultation of a trained nutritional physician or certified clinical nutritionist.
