Dr. Wong's Essentials® Hawthorne Berry Extract is a blend of Hawthorne Berries extracted and combined with Serrapeptidase to create a superbly beneficial product.
"In Germany one of the most frequently prescribed treatments for maintaining healthy/normal heart function is the herb Hawthorne (Crataegus orycantholdes). Germany, like many European countries, has a government agency called the Kommission E which produces official monographs guiding the safe prescription, usage and manufacture of herbal medicines. Amongst current monographs is one on hawthorne where it is listed as having many benefits including by not limited to the potential for improving physical work capacity and anaerobic capacity (the ability to continue functioning in low oxygen conditions).*
In Germany some clinical trials have found benefits in the elderly with no heart conditions by simply helping maintain healthy heart functioning through the aging process (Hoffmann 1995).* Hawthorne is reported to be supportive for normal heart action during menopause, anxiety and nervous disorders (Hobbs & Foster 1990).* There is limited preliminary research showing that hawthorne helps relieve muscle tension and promotes relaxation and normal sleep rhythms (Djumlija 1994) (Chang & But 1986).*"
Hawthorne berry is a great nutritional supplement to help regulate and strengthen a normal healthy heart beat*. However, Hawthorne berry works best as a concentrated extract of just the berries as the leaves and stems are not physiologically active parts of the plants.* To enhance absorption and utilization, Dr. Wong has added the enzyme Serrapeptidase to our Hawthorne Berry Extract supplement.*
This Hawthorne Berry Extract product works synergestically with our ® for optimal results.* Adding our new TMG (TriMethylGlycine) can also be used to help further improve results.*
