Hawthorn Leaf Extract
Several species of hawthorn have been used in traditional medicine, and there is considerable interest in testing hawthorn products for evidence-based medicine. The products being tested are often derived from C. monogyna,C. laevigata, or related Crataegus species, “collectively known as hawthorn”, not necessarily distinguishing between these species, which are very similar in appearance. The dried fruits of Crataegus pinnatifida are used in naturopathic medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, primarily as a digestive aid. A closely related species,Crataegus cuneata (Japanese hawthorn, called sanzashi in Japanese) is used in a similar manner. Other species (especially Crataegus laevigata) are used inherbal medicine where the plant is believed to strengthen cardiovascular function.
Active ingredients found in hawthorn include tannins, flavonoids (such as vitexin, rutin, quercetin, andhyperoside), oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs, such as epicatechin, procyanidin, and particularlyprocyanidin B-2), flavone-C, triterpene acids (such ursolic acid, oleanolic acid, and crataegolic acid), and phenolic acids (such as caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, and related phenolcarboxylic acids). Standardization of hawthorn products is based on content of flavonoids (2.2%) and OPCs (18.75%).
