Category - Chinese hawthorn [Crataegus pinnatifida]

Hawthorn berry powder can be found in some fat burners as well as in some pre-workout supplements with claims that it promotes healthy flow of blood throughout the body. Procyanidins [extracted from hawthorn berry] are reported to exhibit much higher anti-oxidant activity than vitamin E. Furthermore, it is said that procyanidins play a role in the stabilization of collagen and maintenance of elastin. Crataegus pinnatifida extract appears to be one of the few agents that actually promotes hair growth. Short-term usage at recommended doses is possibly safe.
