Hawthorn Flower Pictures - Hawthorn Flowers and Leaves The crataegus plant – better known as the hawthorn – is a large genus of flowering trees and shrubs from the rosaceae family. The hawthorn flower is native to more temperate areas of Europe, Asia and North America, and can easily grow in either full or partial sun, and within a variety of soil types. Interspersed among strong, toothy leaves, the hawthorn flower blossoms from small white balls into delicate white, five-petaled blooms. These blooms surround tiny, pink-headed stamens, and are backed by five star shaped sepals. The stem of these flowers may appear to be vaguely swollen, this is due to the fact that it contains seeds that will, by the fall, develop into appealing red berries. The branches of the hawthorn flower were once traditionally used as decorative pieces that were placed in the home on the first day of May.

The Truth About Coconut Oil - Ellie Krieger Although it’s been more than five years since coconut oil began its meteoric rise in the U.S. marketplace, the confusion about it has not waned a bit. “Should I switch to coconut oil?” is consistently one of the most common questions that come across my desktop — not surprising given that you could throw a dart at the Internet and hit a claim about the oil’s amazing healing power. Mostly, there has been a paucity of good science on it, but a meta-analysis (a systematic review of the existing research) published this year in Nutrition Reviews has shed some light on the topic. I spoke with the lead researcher, Laurence Eyres, chairman of the Oils & Fats Specialist Group at the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry, for further insight. The study found that coconut oil, which is 92 percent saturated fat, raises LDL (bad) cholesterol less than butter does, but significantly more than unsaturated plant oils do.
