But these findings, which were limited to in vitro or animal studies using extracts, do not prove that the presence of anti-cancer extracts means that eating them has anti-cancer effects.
Need to note is, eat hawthorn in large quantities for a long time, still can cause a variety of adverse reactions such as dizziness, arrhythmia to the body, so do not recommend long-term and large consumption. Additional, immature hawthorn contains more gather tannic acid, hollow edible easy cause abdominal distension, abdominal pain wait for a circumstance.
