The Uniqueness of Hanna Kroeger’s Remedies: Heart Care Blend™

Heart Care Blend was designed by Hanna Kroeger to support the heart muscle itself.

Hanna considered Heart Care Blend to be food for the heart.  It was designed to nourish and support the heart muscle and its function. Heart Care Blend combines traditional heart healing herbs such as Hawthorn, Capsicum, and Motherwort with Chickweed and Crampbark to make a unique and highly energetic combination for overall Heart Health.

Hawthorn has been studied extensively for its help with many circulatory concerns including blood pressure & cholesterol regulation, angina, and heart palpitations.  Hawthorn is reported to slow, strengthen and regulate the heartbeat.  It also improves oxygenation, energy metabolism, and pumping capacity in the heart. And it makes the heart’s job easier by relaxing the blood vessels!  Hawthorn Berries are often used in combination with Motherwort to promote longevity and strengthen the heart.

Motherwort is considered to be one of the best heart tonics.  It is used to promote blood circulation, lower cholesterol, slow a too rapid heart rate, and relieve stress on the heart muscle.  It is also helpful in reducing anxiety, relaxing the body, and quieting the nerves.

Capsicum, or Cayenne, is warming and stimulating.  It increases blood flow throughout the body and reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  Capsicum increases vitality in a body while helping to prevent heart attacks, strokes, colds, flu and depression.

Crampbark is considered a sedative and a nervine. It has a calming effect on the body and eases circulatory tensions.  It relieves muscle spasms and is useful for heart palpitations and rheumatism.

Chickweed helps cool inflammation and speeds healing.  It is a common tonic to purify the blood and has mild diuretic and laxative properties.

That is a pretty impressive list of heart healing benefits but Heart Care Blend doesn’t stop there!  Hanna would often recommend this amazing combination for emotional issues of the heart.  The heart can greatly benefit from the warming and relaxing qualities of this combination in times of emotional upset.  Whether a person is grieving for the loss of a loved one or feeling sadness or depression, Heart Care Blend can help.   The physical act of warming the heart offers support and strength.  It is like getting a hug!  The heart does so much more than just pump blood through the body.  It is the center of our capacity to give and receive love!  Give your heart what it needs to stay happy and healthy.

Emotions such as anger, stress and grief can even contribute to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular imbalances.  Spiritual Congestion can be expressed in the physical realm as heart trouble, low blood pressure, high blood pressure, emotional issues, cramps or rheumatism.  Balancing and supporting the body’s emotional state goes a long way to having a strong, and vibrant heart.

Heart Care Blend addresses many heart care issues both physical and emotional.  It offers nourishment and support for a healthy heart.  This is a very valuable and truly unique herbal combination!

Drink more water. Hit the gym. Eat more greens. Say no to ice cream. Cut the caffeine. Do yoga. Stop stressing about it.

The list of healthy living choices seems to be longer than ever, and while it is easy enough to integrate a few of these items into your daily routine, keeping up with all of them can be time consuming. We all want to feel as young as possible for as long as we can, but it can be almost impossible to stick to healthy choices when you’re running from one appointment to another. A cup of coffee is the no-brainer answer to fatigued mornings, and the summer heat is begging you to go out for home churned ice cream, but both have their consequences. Are herbs the easiest way to boost your health?

Herbs for Longevity – The Healthy Heart Herb

hawthornHawthorn is a common shrub, related to the rose. Native to Europe, the Crataegus plant produces a small berry commonly called the Hawthorn berry. While the Hawthorn berry may be considered a common plant, its heart-healing functions in the body can be considered extraordinary. Hawthorn has been used to prevent heart disease for centuries. In the 1800s, North American physicians prescribed the herb for both circulatory disorders and respiratory illnesses. The herb, which may help dilate blood vessels, is said to improve blood flow and protect blood vessels from damage. Several studies have been conducted that prove Hawthorn’s effectiveness in improving heart function and treating heart failure. Some evidence shows that Hawthorn may help fight chest pain due to low blood flow.  The University of Maryland Medical Center reported that Hawthorn may be as effective as the leading prescription drugs in treating heart failure. A powerful longevity-promoting supplement, Hawthorn is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals in the body and protect against DNA damage.

It’s Valentine’s Day and while we can appreciate spreading love with chocolates or flowers, we also want to spread good health with our heart healthy products. I know—we’re so romantic! Take a look below for treats that can help support a healthy heart as well as a quick review of our products to keep your ticker in tip top shape!

Fun Foods for Heart Health

Can popcorn promote heart health? YES!

Can popcorn promote heart health? YES!

Yogurt—Consider making this a part of your Valentine’s Dessert by adding berries or other fruit for a heart healthy treat. Research shows that yogurt may help protect against gum disease which is important since, when left unchecked, gum disease greatly elevates a person’s risk for heart disease. Take care of your teeth to provide care for your heart!

Chocolate—Moderate amounts of flavanol-rich dark chocolate has blood-thinning effects, which can benefit cardiovascular health and boost the immune system by reducing inflammation. Some research also shows that cocoa may help lower blood pressure due to a compound called epicatechin which boosts nitric oxide. Plentiful levels of nitric oxide help keep blood pressure from climbing. Be sure to choose dark chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa solids as milk chocolate lacks significant levels of epicatechin.

Berries—Add these to your yogurt or enjoy them alone! Eating just under a cup of mixed berries daily for eight weeks was associated with increased levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and lowered blood pressure. Berries contain a wide range of polyphenols which increase levels of nitric oxide, the molecule that produces a number of heart-healthy effects like helping to relax blood vessels, which subsequently results in lowered blood pressure.

Popcorn—what a fun treat that everyone loves! Popcorn delivers polyphenols, the antioxidants linked to improving heart health. Gram for gram, popcorn boasts three times more polyphenols than kidney beans! And, popcorn is a whole grain and people who eat plenty of whole grains tend to be leaner and have a lower risk of heart disease than those who don’t.

Wine—Drinking wine in moderation may protect the heart by raising HDL (good) cholesterol, decreasing inflammation and thinning the blood to prevent clots that cause heart attacks and stroke. Moderate drinking may also increase estrogen, which protect the heart-a benefit particularly helpful to postmenopausal women whose reduced estrogen levels increase their risk of heart disease. Remember, 1 drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of liquor. We include all these measurements, not just wine, since some scientific literature indicates that people who drink moderately are less likely to have heart disease than those who abstain.

We think those are some great Valentine’s Day treats that promote heart health (courtesy of Eating Well Magazine) but take a look at what else we have up our sleeves!
