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 new study, especially for hyperoside, chlorogenic acid, and isoquercetin in hawthorn fruits. (2) Methanol and ethanol extracts of hawthorn showed high levels of total flavonoids and polyphenols. The methanol extract of hawthorn showed the strongest antibacterial level against bacteria, particularly stapholococcus aureus (SA). It damaged the cell wall and membrane of SA and inhibited its enzyme activity, increased reactive oxygen species, changed gene expression, and provoked SA cell death. (3) Hawthorn’s methanol extract is potent!

FLAVONOIDS IN CARE OF SPINAL CORD INJURY

Hawthorn leaves were found to contain plenty of total flavonoid species and content.
