Default Herbal Extract Extends Life

How much do you want to bet that this story won't make the evening news?



"An herbal medicinal substance, Crataegus Extract WS1442, safely extends the lives of congestive heart failure patients already receiving pharmacological treatment for the disease, according to a study presented today at the American College of Cardiology’s 56th Annual Scientific Session. Crataegus Extract WS1442 is an extract of leaves of the Crataegus tree, and is a natural antioxidant. The herb is currently approved for use in some European countries to treat early congestive heart failure."

FYI, I believe this product is sold in the US under the name HeartCare:

Crataegus is Hawthorn. We can get it from any HFS. It has been used for centuries for heart support. Good article, thanks Harry.

I'm glad to hear that. Crataegus sounds cantankerous, crotchety,
almost crustaceaus, certainly post cenozoic, but more likely cretaceous.

Whereas, Hawthorn is merely prickly.
