The cardiovascular system is comprised of the heart, vascular network and blood connective tissue. As long as this system is running unimpeded, the cardiac tissue receives nutrients.
However, if there are atheromas (fatty tumors) blocking the way, the result can be atherosclerosis (fatty hardening of the arteries) blocking off nutrients such as oxygen and glucose to the myocardium.
This process can ultimately lead to angina pectoris and other degenerative heart conditions. According to the American Heart Association’s website, “2003 statistics for the United States show that coronary heart disease (CHD) is the single leading cause of death in America.
CHD causes heart attack and angina.” Hawthorn is recognized as one of the best-selling herbal products in Europe. Perhaps because of this, it has many published clinical studies citing its benefts to the cardiovascular system.
This botanical has been proven in clinical trials to reduce myocardial oxygen demand as well as being an antioxidant, cardio-protection agent and a coronary artery vasodilator.
