1. Organic acids

There are mainly oxalic acid, stearic acid, malic acid, oleic acid, citric acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, lauric acid in hawthorn extract. Most of them are unsaturated fatty acids, which regulate blood lipids and improve memory. Linolenic acid has a good effect on inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis and dermatitis. Malic acid and citric acid have good anti-inflammatory, hypoglycemic, antioxidant, antibacterial, choleretic and immune-regulating effects. It also promotes the digestion of fats by gastric juices.

2. Flavonoids

Flavonoids are mainly in Hawthorne Berry Extract Powder. On the one hand, they can remove excess oxygen free radicals in the body and have a strong inhibitory effect on various oxygen free radical reactions. On the other hand, the anti-inflammatory effect of flavonoids is very good, which can inhibit the exudation of inflammatory biological enzymes, so it affects hemostasis and wound healing. In addition, the polyphenol condensed flavan polymer epicatechin in hawthorn has a high content, which has good effects on lowering blood pressure, lowering blood lipids, improving immunity, promoting metabolism, and protecting heart and liver.

3. Triterpenes

Triterpenoids are common in nature, especially in Hawthorn Berry. The special structure and functional group of triterpenoids determine its properties. For example, the pinene derivatives mainly contained in plants have the functions of hemolysis, hypolipidemic, hypoglycemic, and anti-tumor effects. Metabolites of triterpenoids have a bitter taste. It has a perfect defense function and is closely related to the confrontation of plants and insects. The long-term confrontation and the maintenance of ecological balance are the main reasons why triterpenoids gradually have the functions of anti-toxin, detoxification and prevention of microbial invasion. At present, the most effective anticancer drug Taxol is composed of terpenoids, and the anticancer and antibacterial effects of some Chinese herbal medicines such as glycyrrhizin have also attracted much attention.



Hawthorne Berry Extract Powder still has a broad market in application prospects. In addition to food additives and other industries, its health care function also provides product development ideas for the pharmaceutical and health care industry.
