I was looking into purchasing some 'Hawthorne Berry' from the local vitamin store. I have a question about the two options.
First one is Hawthorn Berries;
Hawthorn preparations are derived from the flowers, leaves, or berries of a thorny shrub (Crataegus oxyacantha) native to Europe. The Hawthorn plant is a source of bioflavonoids and other antioxidant chemical compounds. Hawthorn helps promote cardiovascular health.*
Size is 565mg.
Second is Standardized Extract ;
The Hawthorn plant provides a source of bioflavonoids, along with other antioxidant chemical compounds. The in these capsules is made up of aerial plant parts, including the berries, leaves, and flowers of the Hawthorn plant. Hawthorn supports the blood vessels, which supply the heart with vital oxygen and nutrients.** These capsules may be swallowed, or opened and prepared as a tea.
The second one is a little more expensive, which is the better one to buy to help aid in blood pressure support during a cycle? And what is the best dosage to load / to take during a cycle?
