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.
