Want to embrace the heart healing power of the mythical hawthorn bush but aren't quite sure which dietary supplement to try? Look no further. Swanson Ultra Hawthorn Phytosome uses the patented technology of phytosome binding to guarantee you maximum bioavailability and a higher concentration of antioxidant flavonoids per dosage.
To understand just what Swanson Ultra Hawthorn Phytosome is we must first learn a little about the Hawthorn bush (and berry) itself. The ancient Hawthorn bush is known in scientific circles as a member of the Crataegus species. After the Greeks, it was the turn of historic Japanese and Chinese medicines to turn to it for its numerous healing powers.
It was the Chinese who first named it properly (Shan Zha) and used it as a digestive aid. This suggesting today that they may have mistaken the pains from clogged arteries in the chest as simple indigestion. Thankfully it wasn't long before the true power of the Hawthorn became known.
In modern medicine, the phytochemicals from the plant are now finding themselves increasinly sought after to aid in the battle against cardiovascular disease. Literally brimming with Antioxidant Flavonoids they work by actually improving the amount of blood pumped into and out of the heart.
The result is a plant that is capable of dilating our blood vessels to the point where they become more able to handle higher blood pressure, easing pressure on the arterial walls and maximising blood flow around the body.
This is where the really clever science comes in. Whilst it may often seem like adding certain supplements to your diet can mean problem solved, that isn't necessarily the case. That's where Phytosome Technology steps in.
Indena's patented Phytosome Technology is actually changing the way we think about nutritive supplementation.
You may have heard the expression 'bioavailable' and wondered what it means. It literally translates as 'body-ready'. nutrients which our body can absorb and utilise better. Phytosomes are a more bioavailable delivery system which subsequently produce far superior results than conventional herbal extracts. Phytosomes are generated by Indena's patented technology which sees the unique elements of a herb (in this case the Hawthorn berry) bound to phosphatidylcholine (a soy derived emulsifying compound).
What makes this clever is that Phosphatidylcholine is a major component of the cell's membrane, allowing whatever has bonded to it to pass through the lipid structure of the cell more freely. The result? Better, more efficaceous antioxidant flavonoid help for your heart and blood circulation.
