Red Hawthorn Fruit

Red Hawthorn Fruit

Haw “flakes” are sweet tasting and made from the fruit of the Chinese hawthorn. Chinese people are known to take the flakes with bitter Chinese herbal medicines–to make them more palatable. Scientific evidence has proved that the hawthorn flower and leaf can be used safely for the treatment of mild forms of heart failure. The hawthorns compounds are actually flavonoids (oligomeric procyanidins) which are responsible for cardiac action which is attributed to the hawthorn plant.
