Hawthorne helped with my bradycardia:
In addition to the other link I posted about supplements that have helped me enormously during this time being on/coming off of Yasmin, wanted to share something that has alleviated alot of the problems I was experiencing with bradycardia (unsually slow heartbeat -at/under 60 bpm that became ectopic-where it would skip beats) because I think there were alot of women who have reported concerns/issues with their hearts.
I am still presently using this in tincture form along with schizandra and have noticed that the arrhythmia I was experiencing has almost completely disappeared. Here is some information about its healing properties:
Phytochemicals: Caffeic Acid, Hyperoside, Oligomeric Procyanid, Vitexin, Ursolic acid, Rutin, Flavonoids, Quercetin
Medicinal properties: Hawthorn contains a variety of flavanoids that appear to be responsible for the cardiac actions of the plant. Hawthorn has been used for heart cardiac insufficiency, bradycardic rhythm disorders and angina pectoris. Hawthorn increases the blood flow to the heart and restores normal heart beat. Hawthorn is also used after heart attack to help recovery. Hawthorn dilates blood and assists in reducing high blood pressure. Studies have shown that hawthorn increase the contraction strength and the stroke volume of the hearth. Howthorn is only effective if taken for a period of minimum six weeks.
Hawthorn flowers and berries are astringent and are used in decoction to treat sore throats and digestive ailments, such as vomiting and diarrhoea. Hawthorn is also used as diuretic and to treat kidney stones.
Other facts: Hawthorn was first mentioned by the Greek herbalist Dioscorides during the first century AD. It went out fashion as a medicine until the 19th century, when it was used to treat heart diseases. Hawthorn originates from Europe and Western Asia.
