Your Beating Heart:

The role of your heart is to pump oxygen-rich blood to every living cell in the body.

Your heart beats approximately 80 to 100,000 times a day.  It pumps almost 8000 litres of your blood.

Like any complicated and hard working piece of equipment you need to look after it.

Diet and lifestyle are often the major contributors to heart problems.  Cardio Vascular disease kills one Australian every 12 minutes and is largely preventable. (Source: Heart Foundation Australia)

FOODS FOR HEART HEALTH.

What your doctor probably hasn't told you.

HAWTHORN BERRY

The best-known herb for the heart in western herbalism is Hawthorn, which is a small tree or shrub that grows throughout the northern hemisphere.  

 

The pleasant looking hawthorn is a dense tree with small, sharp thorns growing to 25 feet. It has small white flowers with rose-like petals and bright red berries containing one or two large seeds. Hawthorns are native to Europe, North America and Asia. 

 

In both the East and West, hawthorn has been used for generations as both a food and a medicine. The current use of hawthorn for heart health dates back to the 17th century, according to the French doctor, Leclerc. Green, an Irish doctor, is known to have used it extensively--though secretly--as a heart remedy.  After his death in 1894, his daughter revealed the famous cure to be a tincture of the ripe berries of a variety of Crataegus species .  

 

It is believed that Hawthorn can increase blood flow to the heart muscle itself.

 

In pharmacological tests, hawthorn has been shown to improve the contractility of the heart muscle (which can lead to a stronger pumping action of the heart), increase cardiac performance and output, lower the peripheral vascular resistance (reducing the workload of the heart), steady the heartbeat (antiarrhythmic effect), as well as increasing the heart's tolerance to oxygen deficiency, such as might happen during stress or excitement, or in diseases where the arteries are partially blocked.  (Evidence Hawthorn Pub Med _ 1 and 2)

 

It’s a plant that can be added to one's daily dietary regimen when there is any suspicion of problems of cardiovascular issues. If one has a family member who has heart or vascular problems, or for people eating a diet that includes moderate to high levels of fat (especially from dairy products or red meat), or who are stressed or using stimulants (such as coffee), hawthorn could be an excellent support.

 

All herbal tonics work slowly and gently and should be taken for at least 3 months, up to several years or longer, if needed. 

 

With long-term use, it is believed that hawthorn can help to strengthen and nourish the heart. Here is a summary of the important clinical effects of hawthorn: 

 

1. It can help dilates the arteries that supply the heart muscle itself with blood, oxygen, and fuel, providing a better supply of these essential nutrients. This can result, with continued use, in a stronger, more efficient heart beat.  (Evidence Pub Med _ 2)

 

2. It acts as a powerful free-radical scavenger, protecting the heart against the harmful effects of lessened oxygen--a common result of vascular conditions, such as blocked arteries. (Evidence Pub Med _ 1) 

 

In this modern age with its times of stress and anxiety, it is reassuring that nature has provided such a gentle yet effective cardiovascular support as hawthorn

 

GARLIC

 

Garlic may be the world's most respected medicinal plant--not only does it have thousands of years of historical medicinal usage, but it has also been the subject of numerous research studies published in hundreds of scientific articles, of which there have also been a lot of research studies on the cardiovascular effects of garlic, which represents a major amount of research. (Evidence Attachment “Garlic Trials”)

 

While garlic's contribution to the health of the heart and cardiovascular system can be significant, many people don't like to eat garlic because of the smell it imparts to their breath. Garlic odors can even exude from the pores of some people when eaten regularly. It seems many people would rather have heart issues than be have a lonely heart. 

 

For this reason, and also because of convenience, many people like to get their daily clove or two from garlic capsules or tablets. In Heart Mate we have used the dried clove which doesn’t create an odor and to further assist with odor elimination we have added parsley to the formula for its chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll acts as a deodorizer.

 

PARSLEY

 

While we are on Parsley...

 

Parsley is no longer a garnish that sits on your plate - it contains vital nutrients and vitamins that support the body. Parsley is a rich source of calcium, iron, riboflavin, potassium, thiamine, vitamin A, vitamin C and trace amounts of niacin. The parts of the plant used medicinally in Heart Mate are the whole plant. 

Historically, the Greeks held Parsley in high esteem, crowning victors with chaplets of Parsley at the Isthmian games and making it into wreaths for adorning the tombs of their dead. The herb was never brought to table of old, being held sacred to the dead. 

During the Middle Ages it was used as a poison antidote.  The high chlorophyll content facilitates utilization of oxygen.

So we now know why these three foods can be of benefit. But there are three more that are important to the health of the heart.

CAPSICUM

Capsicum, aptly described as the plant that "bites back," is a common condiment in certain diets.  

The plant grows in warm climates and has been used for decades as a catalyst for the other herbs.  

Its red colour is partly due to its high vitamin A content. 

The Capsicum family includes Red Peppers, Bell Peppers, Pimento and Paprika, but the most famous medicinal member of this family is the common Cayenne pepper. 

Because Capsicum can stimulate circulation and may enhance blood flow, it is traditionally considered a food for the circulatory system and a cardiovascular stimulant.  As such, Capsicum is used in traditional medicine to help assist in lowering blood pressure and breaking down cholesterol buildup.  

The warming properties of Capsicum are useful for people suffering from poor circulation to the hands and feet and other related conditions.  

There are still two more plants to complete Heart Mate, let’s take a quick look.

ELECAMPANE

The plant's specific name, helenium, derives from Helen of Troy; elecampane is said to have sprung up from where her tears fell. It was sacred to the ancient Celts, and once had the name "elfwort".[2]

John Gerard (1545) was a famous english herbalist of his time recommended elecampane for helping with breathing issues.

Elecampane may also be helpful to patients with cardiovascular issues. 

 

CRAMP BARK

 

Crampbark as the name suggests is traditionally considered  a calmative.  Indigenous to northern United States and Canada; similar variations occur throughout Europe.

 

So what can we expect from Heart Mate?

 

The pure Botanicals contained in this product have been traditionally used to help support and maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.

 

Hawthorn is an excellent cardiotonic. Hawthorn functions by peripheral vasodilation.

Heart Mate can assist very mild dilation of coronary vessels; increased enzyme metabolism in the heart muscle; and increased oxygen utilization by the heart.

 

Heart Mate can be taken on a daily basis as a supplement to help maintain your heart’s fitness and maintain healthy blood circulation.
