HEART LIQUID EXTRACT COMBINATION

This liquid extract combination offers a tonic effect to the circulatory system. Can be used whenever desired or as a preventative.

Use 5 - 15 drops, 1 - 2 dropperfuls, or as much as a teaspoon at a time. Dose frequency could be 1 - 3 times or several times a day as desired. Generally best to start with less before increasing dose. Better results are more likely if taken on a daily basis.

Do not use herbal products to replace necessary care by a qualified physician.

BOTANICAL SAFETY INFORMATION

Hawthorn Berry Syrup Crataegus oxyacantha

Doses of cardiac drugs may be reduced by concomitant use of Hawthorn. It can potentiate the activity of cardioactive drugs such as Digitalis spp., Convallaria majalis, strophanthin, and the cardiac glycosides digitoxin and digoxin.  However, because of its coronary vasodilating and antiarrhythmic effects, it also potentially reduces the toxicity of these cardiac glycosides by reducing the dosage needed to achieve the desired effect.  It may increase the effects of beta-blockers.  Hawthorn can increase the coronary artery-dilating effect induced by theophylline (a bronchodilator), adrenaline, adenosine (an antiarrhythmic), papaverine (a vasodilator), caffeine (a vasodilator), and sodium nitrate (a salt used to preserve food).  However, the European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy monograph does not list any interactions, so some authorities apparently do not consider these interactions significant.  It can potentiate barbiturate-induced sleep times. Consult a physician when symptoms continue unchanged for longer than 6 weeks or in cases of swelling of the legs. Medical diagnosis is absolutely necessary when pain occurs in the region of the heart, spreading out to the arms, upper abdomen, or the area around the neck;  or in cases of respiratory distress (dyspnea).
