If one pays even the slightest bit of attention to the mainstream media, watches “entertainment” offerings from any cable or motion picture outfit or feels compelled to catch the local news with cutesy women and men (I think, though not entirely sure, they are really human) with their nauseating repartee about the days events, fictitious weather reports on what weather catastrophe might come our way tomorrow and cheese whiz sports wrap up’s – such a modern day smorgasbord of gastronomical upsets might also cause your heart to skip a beat or two.
Not to worry too much as God, Mother Earth, the cast of Gilligan’s Island or whatever other creative force brought us to this hub of nuttiness also provided a wonderful herb to keep the heart healthy and strong enough to endure even the most heinous of modern day offerings, like watching any panel on any news program discussing anything.

Hawthorn is one of the best of the bounty of herbs on this beautiful land to aid optimum performance of the heart and the human circulatory system.
Studies with early-stage CHF (congestive heart failure) patients, using daily doses of leaf with flower extract ranging from 160 to 900 mg, showed improved heart function and exercise tolerance, and a lessening in shortness of breath and post exercise fatigue (Reuter, 1994; Zapfe et al., 1993) – via cms.herbalgram.org
And it is beneficial even if you don’t suffer from CHF.
Regular supplementation with this herb can thus help bring some balance blood pressure and it is considered to be an excellent remedy for the treatment of high blood pressure – especially when the condition is connected to hardening in the arteries of the person. Problems such as those connected to poor circulation caused by aging arteries, problems of poor circulation towards the lower body and legs as well as problems like poor memory and confusion induced by a poor blood circulation to the brain can all be remedied by supplementation with the hawthorn herb. ~ via herbs2000.com
