This deciduous shrub/small tree has been widely distributed throughout all of the British Isles, Europe, West Asia, and North Africa. It reaches a maximum height of 19 feet and grows as wide as 10 feet. The Corylus avellana is one of the first harbingers of spring; its pale yellow, petalless flowers open in February before the arrival of its leaves. The large, toothed leaves of the Corylus avellana are vivid green and heart-shaped with a downy undersurface and a short stalk. As the tree ages, its bright green leaves are transformed into heavy, muted yellow-brown tints of green. In autumn, clusters of nuts are produced from small red tufts on swollen bud-like structures. The pale green clusters of unripe nuts add a lightened feature to this tree as do the autumnal changes in leaf color. The tree is a valuable source of food for wildlife.

The tree has many uses. Its soft, beautifully veined wood is used in basketry, inlay work, and small furniture items. It also yields a good quality charcoal. The twigs are used as dowsing rods. The seeds can be finely ground for use in cosmetics or eaten raw or roasted for baking purposes. Their rich oil content makes the seeds valuable as plant milk. The bark and leaves are a source of tannin.

Powerful Antioxidant


GI – Digestive – Hepatology:


Prevent fibrosis from progressing to cirrhosis, Hepatitis C, All Viral Hepatitis including Alcoholic induced Hepatitis and associated diarrhea, Marked Hepatic Insufficiency. Reduces Cholesterol, Fatty Liver, Dyspepsia. The triad: Juniper, Hazel, Rye are a Polycrest Liver Detox par Excellence. Will reduce the thickening of gallbladder wall in Cholecystitis. Preserves Liver Tissue Integrity.


Hematology – Oncology:


Anticoagulant, Hypochromic Anemia.

Warning: Do not use in lung cancer since it breaks down the fibrous tissue and could cause metastasis. But okay to use in conjunction with chemotherapy. Will prevent blood clots from forming in the lungs. Significant quantities of paclitaxel vinca alkaloids (Taxol®), in at least 12 species of hazelnut trees. Taxol, a potent anticancer natural product (with activity against a number of leukemias and solid tumors in the breast, ovary, brain, and non small cell lung cancer, advanced Kaposi’s sarcoma in AIDS. Contains cesium oligo-element which might explain added oncological effects. Reduces blood acidity and thereby increase oxygen which is so often depress in liver problems or cancer.
