What is Hawthorn Extract and Where Does It Come From? 

Hawthorn berries are tangy little red berries that grow on shrubs and trees. There are hundreds of species of these plants and they are typically found in North America, Asia and Europe.  For years, people have used the Hawthorn plant as an herbal remedy for various ailments. In fact, it is one of the key parts of Chinese medicine! 

The Benefits of Hawthorn Extract

So, what are the benefits of Hawthorn Extract and how can it benefit you? First of all, Hawthorn berries and leaves are loaded with polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that are found in plants. These antioxidants aid in fighting off damaging free radicals in the body and promote a general sense of wellbeing. They also have been shown to reduce symptoms relating to inflammation including asthma, heart problems and even certain cancers. In a study involving mice with liver disease, hawthorn berry extract was shown to reduce levels of inflammatory compounds.1 Another study involving mice showed that Hawthorn berry extract was helpful in reducing inflammation related to asthma symptoms.2 These studies have lead scientists to believe that this extract may offer the same anti-inflammatory benefits in humans.

Hawthorn Extract Supports Healthy Digestion 

In addition to reducing inflammation, Hawthorn extract has been shown to support healthy digestion. If you suffer from bloating, gas and constipation, you should consider adding Superior Labs 100 Percent Natural Hawthorn Extract into your supplement routine. For centuries, Hawthorn has been used to reduce the symptoms associated with digestive disorders. The berries contain fiber which can help to reduce constipation while acting as a beneficial prebiotic. One study actually showed that hawthorn extract dramatically reduced the transit time of food in the digestive system which can also help to alleviate indigestion.3

Hawthorn Extract Also Supports the Heart & Circulatory System

Last but not least, Hawthorn Extract has been shown to promote heart health. A review of 14 randomized studies in more than 850 people showed that hawthorn extract (along with taking heart failure medications) experienced improved heart function and exercise tolerance. This study also showed the study participants experienced less shortness of breath and fatigue. 

Hawthorn Extract has also been shown to help lower blood pressure and improve blood fat levels. Imbalanced levels of blood fat play a key role in having plaque buildup in the blood vessels.
