- Hawthorn berry and leaf - A thorny shrub in the rose family which grows throughout the world. Traditionally, hawthorn berry tea was used to treat heart failure, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries. Some Research suggests that hawthorn can lower cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad cholesterol”), and triglycerides (fats in the blood).

Researchers theorize that red clover might help protect against heart disease.*
