Hawthorn contains a variety of phytonutrients such as cathechins, maslinic acid, hyperoside, isoorientin, isopipex and saponins. The taste of this berry is slightly sweet, sour and smells aromatic. Studies have shown that hawthorn can promote heart function and dilate blood vessels so that more oxygenated blood can reach the heart.
