Daily Herb-o-scope - Keep your heart healthy with Hawthorn berries
Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) is a great cardiac restorative that can nourish and restore the heart. This plant has the innate ability to stimulate or depress the hearts activity as needed. Take it as a tasty tea or as a tincture but don't forget about the delicious jams and jellies that these berries can make. Although Hawthorn is safe to be taken along with heart medication, be sure to consult your physician so that you can monitor you blood pressure and heart function. You may find that with continued use of hawthorn berries you may need less medication.
