Heart Strengthening Hawthorn Tea

According to the World Health Organization, heart disease has been the number killer of men and women around the world for the past 20 years.[1]

This is a HUGE problem.

One of the biggest tragedies about heart disease is that the vast majority is preventable. I covered that in-depth in an article here: Supporting Heart Health

Below is a special tea that includes a particular ingredient that has been used for centuries to regulate the heartbeat and strengthen the heart muscle.

With our devastating heart disease statistics, this tea is needed now more than ever.

The main ingredient is Hawthorn Berries (Crataegus laevigata). According to modern nutritional science, Hawthorn leaves, flowers, and fruits contain compounds that dilate coronary vessels and lower blood pressure. The herb has been used to treat a wide range of heart conditions, including hypertension related to a weak heart, angina, arteriosclerosis, the early stages of congestive heart failure, age-related heart disorders, and arrhythmia.”[2]

Well, that just about covers everything!

The other ingredients in this tea help support the heart in a variety of ways.

  • Nettles (Urtica dioica) nourishes the kidneys and builds the blood.
  • Violet (Viola odorata) is moistening and contains a small amount of salicylic acid.
  • Red clover (Trifolium pretense) supports the lymphatic system.
  • Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) as its Latin name implies, is cardiotonic and benefits the entire cardiovascular system.

Don’t fall victim to the staggering statistics of heart disease. Enjoy this tea 2-3 times per day, and strengthen your heart with every sip.
