Hawthorn Crataegus drops
Extract of freshly harvested Crataegus (Hawthorn) berries
Crataegus berries are edible and during World War I, Crataegus (Hawthorn) seeds were ground and used instead of coffee. In addition, Hawthorn leaves were used instead of tea and tobacco.
More crucially Hawthorn berries have been used in healthcare as far back as the 15th century and known as a tonic. Alfred Vogel relished eating Crataegus berries as a child and later learnt of their true usefulness as a tincture made from the pulp of the berries.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
