Hawthorne Berries




Hawthorn berries have a long history of use in traditional medicine, particularly for their cardiovascular benefits. For centuries, they have been utilized to support heart health, improve circulation, and treat ailments such as high blood pressure and heart failure. In various cultures, these berries have been consumed in teas, tinctures, and extracts, praised for their potent antioxidant properties and ability to strengthen blood vessels. Beyond their medicinal uses, hawthorn berries have also been employed in culinary practices, adding a tangy flavor to jams, jellies, and wines.


Hawthorn berries are small, bright red, and have a tangy, slightly sweet taste with a firm, fibrous texture.

Most authorities on herbal medicine recommend taking 4-5 grams (1 to 2 teaspoons) of the dried berries per day as a tea, made by simmering the berries in water for about 10-15 minutes. They can also be consumed in capsule, extract, or tincture form. Hawthorn berries are widely used for their cardiovascular benefits and overall heart health support. They are traditionally valued for improving circulation, regulating blood pressure, and strengthening the heart muscle. Other common names include maybush, haw, and crataegus.


There are some known precautions. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using hawthorn berries, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications, especially those for heart conditions or blood pressure.
