Some acceptance of using hawthorn to treat heart-related conditions has also been gained in the United States. Hawthorn may have a role as an adjunctive therapy in mild heart failure but its place in therapy is less clear in more severe cases of congestive heart failure, according to Drugs.com.

Hawthorn's ability to lower cholesterol is due to its ability to increase the liver's absorption of LDL cholesterol, also known as "bad" cholesterol, reports SFGate.

Side effects of hawthorn may include skin rash, nausea, headache, dizziness and heart palpitations. Consult with your physician before taking Hawthorn to treat a health condition.
