5 Extracts to Support Your Heart & Circulation*

Valentine’s Day is near, which means you’re probably seeing hearts everywhere. Whether you celebrate it or not, it’s a great time of year to remember and appreciate your hard-working circulatory system. Our circulatory systems do so much for us, and yet most of us rarely think about it! This February, show yourself some love and begin a daily ritual to promote healthy heart and circulatory function.*

If you’re not sure where to begin, we’ll get you started with 5 heart and circulatory support extracts you should know about.*

1.     Motherwort

  • Supportive herb for the heart and nervous system.*
  • Traditionally used to calm nerves and reduce tension.*
  • Traditional support for the endocrine system.*
  • Supports a healthy menstrual cycle.*

As with everything we do, we put our whole hearts into making our Motherwort liquid herbal extract. It’s grown on our Regenerative Organic farm in southern Oregon and we prepare the extract using Certified Organic Motherwort leaves and flowering tops. To assure optimal extraction of the herb’s bioactive compounds, the plants are hand-harvested while in full flower, carefully shade-dried then thoroughly extracted.

Quotes Favorite Herb

Like the comforting feeling of home in a bottle. Love Motherwort and love Herb Pharm’s extract.*

2.     Hawthorn Blend

  • Promotes healthy heart & circulatory function.*

Our Hawthorn Blend is a proprietary mix of the extract of the berry, leaf and flower of Crataegus trees. It’s made with Certified Organic leaves and flowers that are harvested in Europe in the spring or early summer. The berries are responsibly wildcrafted in the Pacific Northwest in autumn.

Quotes Endurance & Heart Health*

I am an American triathlete competing in 2-3 Ironman races per year. I’ve been using Herb Pharm Hawthorn Blend as part of my daily plan…it’s made one of the most pronounced effects on my health of any product I have tried.*
-Christopher P.

3.     Horse Chestnut

  • Supports healthy veins and circulation.*

We prepare Horse Chestnut extract from the seed of Certified Organic and/or responsibly wildcrafted Aesculus hippocastanum trees. Horse Chestnuts look a little funny—like a spikey ball. We only extract the interior seed, not the whole fruit, though!

Quotes Great for Circulation*

I've been using horse chestnut for years to help with my circulation. It's been great for keeping my body healthy.*
-Geraldine G.

4.     Ginger

  • Promotes circulation.*
  • Promotes circulatory warming and alleviates occasional nausea.*

There’s a reason why everyone wants to enjoy the spicy, warming flavor of ginger in the Fall and Winter! Our extract is made with Certified Organic Ginger, and if you’re a super fan of Ginger, we encourage you to read more about it in our Herb Library.

Quotes Great Ginger!

I love having the liquid ginger on hand to regulate amounts as needed. It’s great for teas and yogurts, but especially love it for a quick golden milk shot which I have daily! Awesome product!*
-Mary K.

5.     Heart Health

  • Supports healthy function of the heart & circulation.*

The great thing about herbs is that there are so many to choose from. In addition to the single herbal extracts above, our herbalists also craft formulas like our Heart Health™ liquid herbal extract. This formula includes Hawthorn, Cactus Grandiflorus, Motherwort and Ginger.

I love this product, it calms my heart! The big size is very economical!*
