HeartBeat® is used in Herbal Medicine to help maintain and support cardiovascular health. It contains cayenne and prickly ash, which are traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help support peripheral circulation.
Comprised of nine expertly chosen healing herbs, featuring hawthorn and garlic, this formula has been a mainstay for St Francis for over 20 years. Hawthorn reduces what’s called peripheral vascular resistance. In this way it helps the blood flow to the heart more freely, keeping it supplied with oxygen and beating regularly. Garlic is a highly significant medicinal herb, its many antioxidant benefits verified by thousands of years of use. Scientific research indicates that garlic has remarkable cardiovascular action.
St. Francis Herb Farm uses certified organically grown or wildcrafted herbs in our HeartBeat® herbal formula.
