Modern medicinal parts are leaves and flowers, while traditional preparations use fruits. The main active ingredients of hawthorn are flavonoids, including oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC), vitexin, vitexin 4-O-rhamnoside, quercetin and hyperoside. These flavonoids can act as effective antioxidants.
