HeartBeat is used in Herbal Medicine to help maintain and support cardiovascular health. It contains cayenne and prickly ash, which are traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help support peripheral circulation.
Comprised of nine expertly chosen healing herbs, featuring hawthorn and garlic, this formula has been a mainstay for St Francis for over 20 years. Hawthorn reduces what’s called peripheral vascular resistance. In this way it helps the blood flow to the heart more freely, keeping it supplied with oxygen and beating regularly. Garlic is a highly significant medicinal herb, its many antioxidant benefits verified by thousands of years of use. Scientific research indicates that garlic has remarkable cardiovascular action.
St. Francis Herb Farm uses certified organically grown or wildcrafted herbs in our HeartBeat® herbal formula.

My patients have experienced such dramatic results from your products…
“I have been in practice since 1991, and I believe that I have been a customer of St. Francis Herb Farm for that long as well. My patients have experienced such dramatic results from your products, that I have never had a reason to even consider another supplier for tinctures. I wouldn’t even know where to begin in choosing a particular favorite product. When products are high quality, patients get results, and that makes me a very happy naturopath. Thank you.”

A natural way to reduce heart disease and cardiovascular related conditions …
Hawthorn is a cardiotonic herb which means that it supports the functioning of the heart and vascular system. It is a unique herb because it can be used for both high and low blood pressure. Its blood pressure regulating effect is mediated by several components of the herb. Hawthorn, especially the berries, contains bioflavinoids.
Bioflavinoids repair damaged vessels and dilate vessels in the heart and extremities. This regulates blood pressure and also improves heart pain (angina) and leg pain (peripheral vascular disease) that are due to lack of blood flow.
Hawthorn also influences the angiotensin-converting enzyme, an enzyme that regulates blood pressure by balancing the amount of fluid in the vessels. Other antioxidants in hawthorn, called proanthocyanidins, decrease spasms in the blood vessels and reduce the build up of plaque in the arteries. Finally hawthorn improves heart functioning without altering the amount of blood going through the heart. This makes hawthorn a good choice for the treatment of mild heart failure.
Hawthorn supplements are found as loose herb, encapsulated herb, tincture and liquid extract. Hawthorn products should be standardized as an assurance that they contain hawthorn and that there are some active ingredients present at the time of processing. Hawthorn can be found in combination products for cardiovascular health.
Everyone who takes hawthorn should watch for signs of low blood pressure such as faintness, dizziness and headache. Due to hawthorn’s cardiovascular effects, individuals who use heart medication or blood pressure regulating medication should use hawthorn with caution. Pregnant women due to the risk of hypotension should not use hawthorn.
