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.

The methanol extract of hawthorn had the strongest antibacterial level against bacteria, particularly stapholococcus aureus (SA). It harmed the cell wall and membrane of SA and stopped its enzyme activity, raised reactive oxygen species, transformed gene expression, and triggered SA cell death.
