Crataegus is a genus of tree native to the temperate regions of Europe, Asia, North Africa and North America. The berries of Hawthorn trees, sometimes referred to as haws, have been utilised by humans all over the world for centuries. They are a key part of traditional Chinese medicine, and they are used in the United Kingdom to make wines and jams. The people of Mexico have a particular fondness for the fruit, they often eat them raw, use them for several confitures, and even use them to make sweets. The incipient profile of Hawthorn berries includes: flavonoids, vitamin C, beta-carotene, B vitamins, pectin, minerals and organic acids.
Of the three main extraction methods used to produce herbal remedies, decoctions are simply the best. Macerations use solvents which may leave harmful residues in the end product, tinctures contain alcohol which is a systemic poison. Decoctions extract mineral salts and bitter principles through simmering herbs in our own distilled water for a prolonged period. The entire process takes 15 hours, is labour intensive so not conducive to mass production which is why herbal decoctions are uncommon on line. They contain far higher levels of active ingredients, no alcohol and can be made from hard plant parts unlike infusions. Our decoctions are made in small batches from organic ingredients by our fully qualified herbalist. They are also a superior form of supplementation than tablets or capsules, as most have artificially made ingredients, contain filers, flowing agents, excipients binding agents and preservatives. Also they often contain only one active ingredient neglecting the fact that molecules work synergistically in the body. Perhaps one of the most overlooked factors when manufacturing supplements from fibrous herbs is the fact that a large portion of individuals will struggle to absorb the beneficial compounds due to suboptimal digestion caused by compromised gut health. The extended extraction process involved in brewing decoctions makes these compounds much easier to absorb for the average person. Our qualified Herbalist uses only our own zero ppm quad filtered distilled water, all equipment used is stainless steel and our decoctions are bottled into steam sterilised UV resistant pharmaceutical grade glass bottles, which obviates the need to use preservatives of any kind. Be very careful not to touch the top of the bottle or the inside of the lid against anything or decant it into any container or jug that has not been steam sterilised unless the decoction is to be consumed immediately.
This is an
entirely natural additive and preservative free product, do not contaminate the
inside of the bottle or lid with a finger, never return decanted decoction back
into the bottle, store in the fridge after opening. Use within 6 weeks of
