The traditional botanical hawthorn, in use since the 1600’s, has been the most popular herb in America and Europe for supporting the heart for more than 300 years. Rich in flavonoids and procyanidins, hawthorn’s primary activity is its unique ability to both increase coronary blood flow and increase the contractile strength of the heart, making for a stronger,more efficient heartbeat.


Planetary Formulas offers three scientifically advanced and clinically derived hawthorn products: Hawthorn Heart™, Full Spectrum™ Hawthorn Extract tablets, and Full Spectrum™ Hawthorn Liquid Extract. Each product has been developed in light of the latest advances in modern research and the clinical experience, of one of the world’s foremost herbal authorities— acupuncturist, herbalist and author Michael Tierra, L.Ac., O.M.D.Michael blends classic Western, Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal formulations with modern pharmacological research, resulting in premier hawthorn compounds that are unsurpassed for dependability and consumer satisfaction.


Botanical Support for the Heart

Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) is a small thorny tree with white flowers and red berries. It originated on the hillsides and sunny slopes of England, Europe, and North America.Hawthorn has been the subject of botanical writings since as early as the first century A.D.


Herbalists traditionally used all parts of the hawthorn plant, which has been regarded as the most important cardiac tonic in both Chinese and Western herbalism. A syrup of hawthorn berries was reportedly used as a heart tonic by the private physician of King Henry IV of France.


Research Validates Traditional Beliefs

Today modern research is confirming traditional beliefs about hawthorn. Hawthorn has been shown in animal studies to positively influence the contraction of heart muscle. More significantly, 14 clinical studies on humans have shown positive results for cardiovascular health.


Hawthorn’s bioflavonoids have documented antioxidant activity, which is vital for protecting the heart from the ravages of free radicals.


Full Spectrum Hawthorn Extract

Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Hawthorn Extract tablets consist of hawthorn leaf and flower extract standardized to 2% vitexin (yielding 9 mg vitexin), a part of hawthorn’s primary beneficial constituents. In addition, whole berries are included. Combining leaf, flower, and berries captures the full spectrum of hawthorn constituents, as various parts of the plant contain different concentrations and types of the flavonoids and procyanidins.


Full Spectrum Hawthorn Liquid Extract
