How does Hawthorn work?

Hawthorn can help improve the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during contractions, widen the blood vessels, and increase the transmission of nerve signals.

Are there safety concerns?

Hawthorn seems safe for most adults when a standard form (LI132 Faros or WS 1442 Crataegutt) is used short-term. In some people, it can cause nausea, stomach upset, fatigue, sweating, headache, dizziness, palpitations, nosebleeds, insomnia, agitation, and other problems.

Do not use hawthorn if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have a heart condition, without the help of a healthcare provider.
