Hawthorn Berry - Good to eat and good for you!
Crataegus tincture is made from the dark red berries, haws, to be found hanging in small bunches from the thorny hawthorn shrubs by the wayside or in the meadows every autumn. When Alfred Vogel was a child, he and his friends called them ‘mealy berries.’ "We children did not know anything about them, except that they were good to eat (their pulpy inside is not unlike cooked sweet potato) and of course we ate them because there was probably nothing else at the particular moment. Certainly we did not need those berries when we were young, for Crataegus is a valuable solution in cases of weak heart muscles."
When arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and, especially, a hardened and constricted coronary artery are diagnosed, Crataegus can be a reliable solution.
