A blend of heart is a unique set of herbs designed for people who have problems related to the cardiovascular system. Many plants has a beneficial effect on the heart and blood vessels, to our mix we have chosen herbs that improve oxygenation of the heart, strengthen the contractile force of the heart muscle, regulate blood pressure and relax the muscles of coronary arteries.
– Hawthorn flower inflorescences collected with hawthorn leaves have an extremely beneficial effect on the heart – increase the strength of contractions, while slightly reducing the number of contractions, toning effect on the myocardium. Hawthorn relaxes smooth muscles of blood vessels, especially the coronary arteries of the heart. This results in relief of pain and decreasing shortness of breath and also increases the blood flow in coronary arteries. Flavonoids present in hawthorn also increase blood flow in vessels of the brain, so that it reaches the appropriate amount of oxygen.
