Vital substances:

Hawthorn berries have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine and are considered to be a remedy in our part of the world too. They are used primarily for weak hearts, cardiac palpitations and arteriosclerosis. The berries are said to regulate the blood pressure and also to lower it [1].
Hawthorn berries can be eaten as a preventive measure as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Today, homeopathic practitioners make use of hawthorn berries when combatting cardiac insufficiency, for an irregular pulse with pain under the left collar bone, and for burning skin rashes.

The most interesting substances contained in hawthorn berries are oligomeric procyanidines (OPC), glycosidic flavones such as vitexin and vitexin-rhamnoside, as well as glycosidic flavonols, for example rutin and hyperoside. The berries also contain 0.5 to 1 % tannins [1].

Dried hawthorn berries contain the same nutrients and vital substances as fresh hawthorn berries, only in a concentrated form. This makes them an even better, and above all, healthy source of vital substances for our bodies. The natural world makes it possible for the berries to give us this nutritional bounty.

Description:

Hawthorn berries are aromatic berries with a strong flavour and slightly sweet taste. The colour varies from rich orange to reddish-brown.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic hawthorn berries exclusively from a remote mountainous region in Uzbekistan / Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic farming and are worked by the local organic farmers at harvesting time only. The farmers in this area have complied with organic cultivation criteria for many years and are proud of their contribution towards sustaining the natural balance.

The hawthorn berries are picked by hand. After harvesting, the hawthorn berries are washed, the stalks removed and then gently dried using solar energy. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.

Product purity:

The hawthorn berries are pressure treated and controlled in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
