Hawthorn is a deciduous flowering shrub in the rose family that is widely distributed throughout most of the Northern Hemisphere. In the wild, it is typically found in thickets and woodland settings. In cultivation, hawthorn is grown as a hedge plant.
The fruit of the shrub, which are called haws, are abundant in vitamin C and potent antioxidant compounds known as oligomeric procyandins. The powdered berry is convenient to add to foods and beverages or to encapsulate as a dietary supplement.
Add to fruit or vegetable juice, smoothies, soups and other foods.
Combine with other ground herbs and spices to make natural foundation, blush and eye shadow.
Precautions - Consult your physician before using this herb if you have high blood pressure or a heart condition because hawthorn compounds may increase the effects of pharmaceutical medications used to treat these conditions.
