Today, many health care professionals use hawthorn to help protect against heart disease and help control high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Heart failure Hawthorn has primarily been studied in people with heart failure (a condition in which the heart is unable to pump adequate amounts of blood to other organs in the body). Four studies conclude that hawthorn significantly improved heart function. There have found that the herb can improve a heart failure patient’s ability to exercise. Patients have reported that hawthorn significantly improved symptoms of the disease (such as shortness of breath and fatigue). One study found that hawthorn extract (900 mg/day) taken for 2 months was as effective as low doses of captropril (a leading heart medication) in improving symptoms of heart failure. A large study found that a standardized hawthorn supplement was effective in 952 patients with heart failure. The study compared conventional methods of treating heart failure (various medications) with hawthorn alone and in addition to the drugs. After 2 years, the clinical symptoms of heart failure (palpitations, breathing problems, and fatigue) decreased significantly in the patients taking the hawthorn supplement. The patients taking hawthorn also took less medications for their condition. Atherosclerosis Animal and laboratory studies demonstrate that this herb has antioxidant properties that help protect against the formation of plaques. The buildup of these fatty materials in the blood vessels is called atherosclerosis. Plaque buildup in the vessels supplying the heart with oxygen-rich blood may cause chest pain (angina) and heart attacks, while plaque buildup in the arteries that supply blood to the brain may result in stroke. Chest pain Hawthorn berry preparations have been shown to combat chest pain (angina), which is caused by low blood flow to the heart. In one early study, 60 angina patients were given either 180 mg/day of hawthorn berry-leaf-flower extract or placebo for 3 weeks. Those who received the hawthorn preparation experienced improved blood flow to the heart and were also able to exercise for longer periods of time without suffering from chest pain. High cholesterol Studies using rats suggest that a hawthorn tincture (made from the berries) may be a powerful agent for the removal of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol from the bloodstream. The tincture of hawthorn berries also reduced the production of cholesterol in the livers of rats fed a high-cholesterol diet. More studies of hawthorn and cholesterol in people are needed. High blood pressure Although hawthorn has not been studied specifically in people with high blood pressure, considerable evidence supports the cardiovascular benefits of this herb. Studies suggest that hawthorn can be taken safely by people with hypertension who are also taking blood pressure medications. A hawthorn extract was recently found to be effective for hypertension in patients with type 2 diabetes who were also taking their prescribed medicines. Patients took 1,200 mg hawthorn extract daily or placebo for 16 weeks. Those taking the hawthorn supplement had lower blood pressures than those taking the placebo
