FLAVONOIDS IN HAWTHORN LEAVES’ EXTRACT
Hawthorn leaves’ antioxidant and antimicrobial attributes are expanding its reputation as a well-known herbal medicine plant. Hawthorn’s total phenols, total flavonoid content, and antioxidant activity tested well in a recent study, especially for hyperoside, chlorogenic acid, and isoquercetin in hawthorn fruits. (2) Methanol and ethanol extracts of hawthorn demonstrated high levels of total flavonoids and polyphenols. The methanol extract of hawthorn showed the strongest antibacterial level against bacteria, especially stapholococcus aureus (SA). It harmed the cell wall and membrane of SA and inhibited its enzyme activity, raised reactive oxygen species, changed gene expression, and provoked SA cell death.

Research arranged to be published in 2021 presents the powerful therapeutic benefits of hawthorn leaves’ flavonoids for spine cord injury. Hawthorn leaves were found to contain plenty of total flavonoid species and content. Research described that this type of an abundance of flavonoids can reduce apoptosis (cell death) and utlilize neuroprotective effects to stimulate motor function in rats with spinal cord injury.
