Hawthorn BerriesHawthorn belongs to the rose family.

Used for generations as a symbol of Hope.

A small thorny tree that bears tiny red berries. This fruit is used in all kinds of foods in many different countries.

Research over the last 100 years is indicating hawthorn as beneficial to the cardiovascular system.

Hawthorn may help lower blood pressure and reduce angina.

German pharmacies use hawthorn a lot. Both prescription and over the counter.

Hawthorn isn’t really known to have any dangerous side effects.

BUT it’s never a good idea to Dr. your own heart! If you want to use hawthorn to treat your blood vessels and heart talk to your doctor about adding it to your regimen.

GuaranaA wood vine grown in the Amazon Basin.

As much as triple the caffeine as a cup of java.

The seeds are sometimes eaten by the spoonful and sometimes pulverized with added water to make a paste.

Dried paste is used to make a hot coffee like beverage.

Guarana may have the ability to keep red blood cells moving instead of clumping together, which could prevent a heart attack, but way more research is needed.

NOTE: Guarana is REALLY powerful enough to give most people the jitters or a headache. I think I’ll opt for a good old fashioned cup of coffee instead.

I am currently hunting up a picture of this plant.
