fresh Shan Zha 246For men:

Hawthorne is also useful as a tonic for men because it balances and enhances the adrogenic (male) hormones in general.  Hawthorn berries also have the ability to relax and dilate blood vessels, which is helpful for erectile problems.

Cautions:

Hawthorn may interact with some vasodilating medications and may potentiate or inhibit the actions of drugs used for heart failure, hypertension, angina, and arrhythmias.  Check with your herbalist, doctor or knowledgable health practitioner before taking hawthorn with vasodilating medications or potentially with blood thinners.

Large amounts may cause a drop in blood pressure and possibility of fainting. Generally considered safe for long-term use, do not exceed recommended dosage. Consult your health care professional for assistance with heart problems.
