  1. Why does Hawthorn Syrup work?
    We have learned that it dilates the veins and arteries, allowing more blood flow to the heart and better circulation. It also allows the heart to function with less oxygen. A Ph.D. N.D. told me that hawthorn has the same frequency as the heart!
  2. Will Hawthorn Syrup help rapid and irregular heart beats? What about atrial fibrillation and anxiety attacks?
    Yes. See the above answer. We have helped hundreds of people and include information about these problems with every order.
  3. Do you use the whole berry in your process or just the fruit (and not the seeds)?
    We only use the whole berry (including seeds), the most potent part of the tree, to make our concentrated fluid extract product. We use our proprietary process that we have developed over the years. My Ph.D. N.D. teacher states that our product is more than ten times stronger than competitive hawthorn products on the markets.
  4. Is your syrup more beneficial than dried hawthorn in capsules? The people at your health store will tell you that it takes over two months before you see any benefits from the hawthorn capsules. (You could be dead twice!) Also, most companies use the whole tree: berries, thorns, bark, leaves, etc. (Cleaning the berries is very time consuming and costly.) One company told me they just grind up everything and no one knows the difference. Dried berries may have been subjected to high heat, which kills most of the cardio enzymes. If the berries were imported, they were gassed and radiated along with all imported produce.
  5. Is there sugar or honey in your syrup?
    Our product contains no sugar or honey. We use vegetable glycerine, a sweet syrup made from the Blue Agave plant that is friendly to diabetics.
  6. Can my pets benefit from Hawthorn Syrup?
    Pets love it! Pets with heart problems tend to cough a lot. As with humans, most pet problems are caused by constipation. Check out our pet link on our web site. We have helped miniature pinschers, adult Dobermans, a Maine Coon cat named Nathan, and work with a holistic vet in Indiana.
  7. Do you ship your Hawthorn Syrup outside the United States? If so, what are the additional charges?
    We have customers in over 35 countries and as far away as Australia, Europe and the Philippines. Pricing the shipping charges is difficult. We bill these charges separately after we get the shipping rate from the U.S. Post Office.
  8. Is Hawthorn Syrup safe to take while on other medications?
    Hawthorn is a very safe herb. Itís like eating apple sauce. It has an LD (lethal dose rate) of 4,000 mg/kg of body weight. This is considered very safe. (For example, caffeine is 200 mg/kg body weight.)

    We list the possible interactions on our web site, but have not had any problems yet. The Chinese use hawthorn as a digestive aid and to remove stagnation from the stomach in addition to its use as a heart tonic. (Itís also good for sore throats.)

  9. Is using your syrup more beneficial than eating just the berries?
    Our syrup gives a higher concentration of hawthorn than just eating the berries would. It is a liquid and bypasses the digestive tract, so it will also work more quickly. The berries must first be digested (and may also be difficult to obtain).
  10. What is the difference between the alcohol extract and the water extract? What about the taste?
    We use a blend of brandy and vegetable glycerine in the alcohol version and just vegetable glycerine in the non-alcohol version (which we developed). They both work equally well. The non-alcohol version tastes sweeter. We recommend it for pets and for insulin-dependent diabetics, as well as for people who donít want to consume alcohol even small amounts.
  11. My country uses the metric system. Iím not sure how much I should take.
    Donít worry; you canít overdose on our product. Last year I drank about a quart (32 ounces or 908 grams) with a gallon of distilled water to get out of a heart attack after an accident with a tri-axle dump truck. It worked immediately! To answer your question specifically:
    1 teaspoon = 1.5 grams = 1,500 milligrams
    (3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon; 2 tablespoons = 1 ounce)
    16 ounces (1 pound) = 454 grams
  12. The non-alcohol version of your Hawthorn Syrup tastes too sweet to me and upsets my stomach. Can it be added to something hot or cold?
    The Hawthorn Syrup with brandy isnít as sweet; I prefer it too. But if youíd rather stick with the non-alcohol version, you can dilute it with any liquidóhot or cold.
  13. Will your product help high blood pressure?
    Hawthorn will help regulate blood pressure as needed. It works like magic for low blood pressure, bringing it up to normal in a matter of hours! Years ago, when my friendís wife was in the hospital dying in the last stages of cancer, her blood pressure was 60/40 for three days. He gave her a teaspoon of Hawthorn Syrup at 5:30 p.m. and another at 9:00 p.m. At 12:30 a.m. her blood pressure was 110/60! They discharged her in the morning. (Sadly, she died from the cancer three weeks later.)

    With high blood pressure, hawthorn helps but takes longer and requires some dietary changes. I had a customer go from 220/120 to 160/90 in one month! Drinking a lot of distilled water will help too.

    We have many testimonials from people whose high blood pressure problems have been helped, and include information about high blood pressure from Granny Earthís Newsletter with every order.

  14. Will hawthorn help with cholesterol problems?
    Our research states that it does. Hawthorn berries contain a lot of pectin, which is very thick and sticky. For example, when people make hawthorn berry jelly, they donít have to add pectin to make it jell. Hawthorn acts as a digestive aid and makes a calming tea. You can check with your local health food store for natural products for cholesterol reduction without side effects. You should also check products for high homocystene, too, which probably causes more blood clots, strokes and heat attacks than cholesterol.
  15. How much solid extract of crataegus oxycantha is in a teaspoon of your product?
    First: Hawthorn Syrup is a concentrated fluid extract of hawthorn berries containing many water soluble cardio enzymes and phyto chemicals. It is not a drug. Although it cannot be measured exactly, our product contains about 1,000 to 1,050 milligrams of crataegus oxycantha. We make possibly the most concentrated Hawthorn Syrup on the market and are recommended by several medical doctors.
  16. Can I take more than the dose recommended on the web site?
    YES! The dosage on our website was the recommendation from the early 1900s, when there wasnít all the pollution and bad water we have now. You have to listen to your body and act accordingly. The information included with our product recommends between two and six tablespoons per day of our Hawthorn Syrup for congestive heart failure. We also include information that recommends Hawthorn Syrup for congestive heart failure and general heart health.
  17. Can I be a distributor of your product?
    No, we are a private company. We donít use distributors, outside sales people, or participate in multi-level sales.
  18. Can I buy your product locally or do I need to order it directly from you?
    We donít sell to retail stores. Our products need to be refrigerated when received because they are alive. Many stores donít have refrigeration. In addition, we cannot give retail stores the large discount they require due to the high manufacturing costs required to maintain a high quality concentrated product. We try to keep the cost affordable for the average person.

    We do a good job sending out our orders within a day or two. We ship via Priority Mail, which delivers in two to three days in the United States and within a day to our local area. Export sales to foreign countries take longer, depending on location; for example, it generally takes between seven and ten days for a delivery to Australia.
