RED hawthorns are an effective herb in TCM that helps relieve indigestion problems and treat high blood pressure.

According to the legend, hawthorn was discovered by famous herbalist Li Shizhen in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) with the help of a 7-year-old boy. The boy always had a yellow complexion (not a healthy color in TCM) and had a big stomach. Since he played and ate normally, his parents didn't seem concerned.

Yet Li later found that the boy had a better color in the face. The mother said her son ate a lot of wild fruits on the hill near his aunt's house, coughed up a lot of phlegm and got better gradually afterwards.

Li asked the boy to lead him to the fruit tree. He found the hawthorns that cured the boy's indigestion problem.
