What is the difference between Hawthorn Berries and Hawthorn Leaves and Flowers?

Hawthorne Berries are typically used to treat cardiac insufficiencies of the heart. The flowers and leaves would be more commonly used for normalizing blood circulation helping to have stronger arteries for better blood flow to the heart. Nutritionally the berries are more beneficial for those with dysfunctional cardiac weaknesses that already exist and help to normalize higher quality heart function.

The flowers and leaves can benefit circulation to the heart and those that have weaknesses there with poor dietary control of fats and sugars. Combining the berries, flowers and leaves to supply a full spectrum of constituents is the best preventive approach for an overall healthy heart and cardiovascular tonic in support of holistic health.
