Hawthorne Max-V vegetarian capsules by Douglas Laboratories provide a significant quantity of the flowering tops and berries of the hawthorn tree, Crataegus oxyacantha, standardized to 2% vitexin-2″ rhamnoside. Rich in bioflavonoids, extract of hawthorn has been known for centuries as a potent cardiovascular tonic, improving the function of the heart and circulatory system.
Hawthorn’s berries and flowering tops have been used medicinally for close to two millennia as a treatment for digestive problems, kidney and bladder stones, and as a diuretic. Only recently has hawthorn’s cardioprotective benefits been recognized. Today hawthorn is perceived, especially in Europe, as a prime supplement for healthy cardiovascular support.
The cardiotherapeutic properties of hawthorn are due to its high content of many biologically active flavonoid compounds, including anthocyanidins, proanthocyanidins, quercetin, vitexin, vitexin ramnoside, as well as catechin and epicatechin. Hawthorn extract has been shown in human as well as animal studies to improve circulation by dilating coronary blood vessels.
Hawthorne Max-V vegetarian capsules may be a useful nutritional adjunct for those who wish to support their heart and circulatory system.
