Macerate 02 is an oil preparation in which ginger, parsley, cinnamon and hawthorn are soaked in apricot kernel oil.

For six weeks, the plants are immersed in cold-pressed apricot kernel oil, which "binds" their medicinal properties, i.e. macerates them. 

By taking 2-3 teaspoons a day (before meals), you get the best from the synergy of carefully selected herbs and apricot oil.

What does science say

  • According to literal data and the pharmacopoeia, HAWTHORN contains procyanidins, flavones, tannins, ascorbic acid and acts as a heart tonic, coronary vasodilator, hypotensive and antisclerotic. That is exactly why it is used to strengthen the heart, in hypertension and angina pectoris (1,2,3).
  • According to the pharmacopoeia, GINGER acts as a carminative and diuretic (4)
  • PARSLEY has its own aromatic smells and according to the pharmacopoeia it contains essential oil, acting as a diuretic, carminative, expectorant, antirheumatic and antimicrobial and is used in cystitis, dysuria, bronchitis... (5,6,7,8)
  • CINNAMON and its scents and aromas act as an antispasmodic, carminative, corrigent... (9,10)
  • APRICOT OIL contains almost no amygdalin at all (amygdalin is found exclusively in the membrane of the apricot kernel) and therefore has no anticancer properties, but it is a very good nutritive oil. (11,12)
