How our Product is Made: The SRC Difference
We harvest our berries from wild Pennsylvania hawthorn trees. We separate the berries from the leaves, thorns, branches, etc. and only use the berries, which we believe contain the most potent ingredients. This is a very difficult and labor-intensive process. Most companies making hawthorn products state that they use the whole tree.
Many of the hawthorn berries used in various hawthorn products are imported from Eastern Europe in dry dehydrated form. Dr. Christopher (possibly the most famous herbalist in North America) has stated that fluid extracts made from fresh herbs are more potent than those made from dried herbs.
We only use the berries on the trees not ones that have fallen to the ground, which we have learned spoil much faster and are subject to insects. After the berries have been cleaned, we place them in a freezer to insure freshness prior to processing.
We use only distilled water in the extraction process.
IngredientsAlcohol Base: Concentrated hawthorn berry fluid extracted with distilled water in a base of vegetable glycerin and 6.7% ethyl alcohol by volume.
