Hawthorn Berry is widely recognized for its cardioprotective properties, and has been subject to studies in multiple animal models.
Several animal studies show that hawthorn can act as a vasodilator, meaning it can relax constricted blood vessels, ultimately lowering blood pressure.
A review of 14 randomized studies in more than 850 people concluded that those who took hawthorn extract along with their heart failure medications experienced improved heart function and exercise tolerance.
A larger study with just under 2,700 people with heart failure suggested that supplementing with hawthorn berry may reduce the risk of sudden heart-related death.
In addition to supporting heart health, Hawthorn berries have also been used for centuries to treat different digestive issues.
In a study in mice with liver disease, hawthorn berry extract significantly reduced levels of inflammatory compounds.
While these studies haven't been conducted in dogs, the fact that it has shown potential benefits in multiple species, points towards it more than likely having a beneficial effect for dogs as well. Especially when combined with the lack of any case reports demonstrating any toxic effect for dogs, as hawthorn is widely used in canine heart supplements.
