Hawthorn Berry 山楂

Chinese Hawthorn is most commonly used for treating indigestion, particularly that of meaty or fatty foods.

However, it can also be used to treat cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol etc.

This is due to its less commonly known TCM property of clearing qi and blood stagnation.



山楂最常用于消食化积,尤宜消化油腻肉食。

但山楂其实还有行气散瘀,活血止痛之功效,因此现代也用于治疗各种心血管病,如高血压病,高脂血症等。
