Hawthorn Berry Products

This species of tree has many religious, superstitious and occult connotations throughout Europe and the Middle East. Following the ancient herbal traditions of the past Indigo Herbs brings you three premium quality Hawthorn ingredients; Hawthorn Berry Fruit Powder, Hawthorn Berry Tincture and Hawthorn Berries Tea. This highly effective supplement is very versatile and is said to be good for complaints of the heart, both emotional and physical. Indigo Herbs has an affinity with the Hawthorn since in Glastonbury it is said Joseph of Arimathea pushed his staff into the ground on Wearyall Hill which then burst into life, growing into a thorn tree which unusually flowers twice a year - once in May and then again at Christmas.  

Within Pagan and Christian legend the Hawthorn holds a position of significance. This is primarily because many pagan traditions and superstitions carried over into Christian belief when Christianity rooted in Europe. In Ireland the Hawthorn is associated with fairies and is held to be one of the three sacred trees; the other two being Oak and Ash. Solitary Hawthorn bushes are thought to be under the protection or homes to fairies. It is very bad luck to cut down a Hawthorn tree in Ireland which is why you might see solitary Hawthorns growing in open fields. For the Greeks and Romans the Hawthorn was a symbol of fertility featuring heavily in marriage ceremonies. The Romans would use Hawthorn sprigs to ward off evil from their homes which is also a common folklore in Ireland and Britain. Other superstitions include farmers hanging Hawthorn branches in their barns so their cows give better milk, and fishermen carrying a thorn of Hawthorn when casting for fish to increase their chances of a good catch.

The Hawthorn comes in many species and variants throughout Europe, North America and Northern Asia. These trees belong to the Rosaceae family and can come in various sizes with a multitude of different leaf variations. Flowers can be white, pink, red or a mixture of all three. The berries are used throughout the world as a compliment to cooking, most notably in China and Korea, and have a very tart taste.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Indigo Herbs Hawthorn Berries can be made into a herbal tea by decocting the berries and immersing in boiling water over a low heat for 10 minutes, this extracts the phyto-chemicals from the bark, root, plant matter. Use 2 cups of boiling water per person. Pour and strain into a cup; strain the plant material, sip and relax.

Serving:

1-2 teasp per cup boiling water up to 3 times a day

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Hawthorn Berry Tea derives from trees that are cultivated by experts who know the very best time to harvest the Hawthorn berries. All berries are cleaned and then dried in dehumidifiers under strict sanitized conditions. After all the moisture has been pulled from the berries they are tested for pollutants and heavy metals before being packed and shipped. 

Overdose can cause cardiac arrhythmia and dangerously lower blood pressure. Milder side effects include nausea and sedation. Patients taking Digoxin should avoid taking hawthorn.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Hawthorn Berry Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Hawthorn Berry Tincture:
Traditionally Taken: 2-4ml tincture up to 3 times a day.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner. 

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.
  • Packaged in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle with dropper.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Hawthorn Berry Tincture derives from trees that are cultivated by experts who know the very best time to harvest the Hawthorn berries. All berries are cleaned and screened before undergoing a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.  

Overdose can cause cardiac arrhythmia and dangerously lower blood pressure. Milder side effects include nausea and sedation. Patients taking Digoxin should avoid taking hawthorn.

Also known as: Hawthorne, Haw, May, Mayblossom, and Mayflower

The Hawthorn berry is extremely rich in antioxidants that specifically work to support the heart. They are especially high in oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs) and it is this particular class of antioxidants that seem to be responsible for Hawthorn’s many health benefits. They enhance the antioxidant activity of vitamins A, C and E, improve circulation, strengthen capillaries, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, protect against atherosclerosis, are effective antioxidants for the brain and nerve tissue and enhance connective tissue health. 

Also of benefit to the digestive system, Hawthorn Berries stimulate bile and gastric secretions, aiding in the digestion of stagnant food in the GI tract, especially that which is rich in fats or protein.They also contain various organic compounds that interact with gut flora to improve the digestion of nutrients.

Our fruit and vegetable powders are slow-dried to preserve the nutritional content and are 100% natural with nothing added. This makes these powders a perfect choice for using as natural flavourings and colourings.

It’s simple and easy to benefit from the goodness of these superfood fruit and vegetable powders by adding them to smoothies for a superfood boost. However they can be used extensively in food preparation.

Try experimenting with the intense flavours in making raw chocolate, icecream, flapjacks, cakes, breads, biscuits, pancakes to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Fruit and Vegetable powders page.

Hawthorn Fruit Powder can be added to smoothies, encapsulated or mixed with a little water or juice.

Suggested Use: 1 – 2 tsp daily

High in Vitamin C

Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the safest and most effective vitamins whose benefits are many.  It is absolutely vital in collagen production – collagen is a simple protein and an essential part of our connective tissue – the very framework of our body.  All of the components that hold our bodies together such as skin, bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums, tendons and cartilage rely upon collagen.  Vitamin C is directly responsible for influencing collagen synthesis and helps to shield us from the symptoms of collagen deletion – most famously scurvy! 

A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals which are harmful by-products of digestion or foreign substances in the atmosphere.  Inside the body it changes form to a negatively charged compound called ascorbate which helps to protect nerve cells and improves psychological function.  It has been known as the antioxidant’s antioxidant because it functions to protect vitamin E from oxidation too, another vitamin that interacts with free radicals to prevent cell damage.  Vitamin C strongly enhances the absorption of iron - when they are consumed and digested together, vitamin C combines with the iron to form a compound that is more easily absorbed.  Crucial to the overall health of the body in its efforts to fight off infections – both bacterial and viral – white blood cells contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than other cells and require constant replenishment to keep the immune system working to its optimum capacity, especially during and after intense physical exercise.    Whilst highly concentrated in citrus fruits, other rich sources of vitamin C are acerola cherries, leafy green vegetables, red peppers and potatoes.

Vitamin C contributes to:

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of gums

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin

·         normal collagen formation for the normal function of teeth

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         normal functioning of the nervous system

·         normal psychological function

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

·         the reduction of tiredness and fatigue

·         the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E

·         Vitamin C increases iron absorption

SOURCE OF
Vitamin A
more info...
Source of Vitamin A

Vitamin A is the name given to a group of fat-soluble antioxidant compounds.  Two different types of vitamin A are found in the diet; “preformed vitamin A” (also referred to as retinol or retinal) is found in animal products and “pro-vitamin A” is found in plant based foods - the most common type being beta-carotene.  It was the first fat soluble vitamin to be recognised and is sometimes referred to as the “anti-infective” vitamin due to its enhancement of the body’s immunity against infections by increasing the lymphatic responses against disease forming antigens.  It keeps the mucous membranes moist that line the mouth, respiratory passage and urinary tract and enhances the activity of white blood cells. 

Known as retinol because it produces the pigments in the retina in the eye, it enables your eyes to adjust to light changes, keeps the eyes moist and improves night vision.  It can also significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.  Vitamin A helps to keep your body free from free radicals and toxins which might cause damage to your skin, helping to keep it soft and supple by ensuring moisture retention.  Vitamin A deficiency can impair iron metabolism which can lead to anaemia despite adequate iron intake.  Playing an important role in cells’ ability to adapt to perform specific functions in larger organs, the richest sources of preformed vitamin A are found in liver, kidney, butter and whole milk, whereas good sources of pro-vitamin A are dark green leafy vegetables and yellow-orange vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots.

Vitamin A contributes to:

·         normal iron metabolism

·         the maintenance of normal mucous membranes

·         the maintenance of normal skin

·         the maintenance of normal vision

·         the normal function of the immune system

·         Vitamin A has a role in the process of cell specialisation
