What’s your favorite herb?
“Fresh avena (the fresh milky oat extract) is perfect for people who have nervous exhaustion. It’s nerve food. Then there’s hawthorn, which is heart food. Hawthorn is cardiotonic for any type of cardiovascular or circulatory problem. Both herbs are perfect for America – where so many people are walking around with nervous exhaustion and broken hearts. Both are also plentiful and sustainable.”
What herb’s going to be popular?
“Hawthorn, because it prevents and treats atherosclerosis, increases cardiac blood flow, prevents angina and treats things like intermittent claudication (limping). Hawthorn strengthens the heart muscle itself – so it’s good for both recovery and prevention. It’s an exceptional herb for good cardiovascular health.”
