Hawthorn is a genus of small ornamental trees belonging to the rose family that have sharp thorns and yield bunches of aromatic white flowers and bright red fruit or berries. Hawthorn leaves, ﬂowers and berries have been used for generations by herbalists as a cardiovascular tonic. Hawthorn is believed to contain many beneficial compounds, including antioxidant flavonoids, that are thought to benefit heart health. These antioxidant flavonoids are thought to support healthy cardiovascular function by supporting cardiac muscle tone, vascular integrity, blood flow, and protecting the blood vessels from damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hawthorn?
Hawthorn is a genus of small ornamental trees belonging to the rose family that have sharp thorns and yield bunches of aromatic white flowers and bright red fruit or berries. Hawthorn leaves, ﬂowers and berries have been used for generations by herbalists as a cardiovascular tonic.
What are the active ingredients in Hawthorn GOLD™?
Hawthorn is believed to contain many beneficial compounds, including antioxidant flavonoids (e.g. Vitexin), that are thought to support healthy cardiovascular function by supporting cardiac muscle tone, vascular integrity, blood flow, and protecting the blood vessels from damage.
Does Hawthorn GOLD™ contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of Hawthorn GOLD™ contains:
- Non-GMO, gluten-free rice concentrate - Because the nature of herbal extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness), and particle size, rice flour is sometimes added during manufacturing to ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.
- Non-GMO Maltodextrin - The Maltodextrin in the product is actually part of the Hawthorn ingredient complex and was not added to the product by NutriGold® during manufacturing. Because the FDA guidelines on declaring excipients present in the ingredient on a finished product's label are vague, most companies choose not to declare these excipients even though they are present in a significant enough amount and consumers should have that information when making a purchasing decision.
Because what you see is NOT what you always get when it comes to supplements, NutriGold is once again leading the way with regard to truth and transparency in supplement labeling by declaring not just what is added by us during manufacturing (e.g. Non-GMO, Gluten-free Rice Flour), but also declaring excipients that are a part of the ingredient complex we source from our vendors. This is just another thing we do at NutriGold to ensure that our valued customers have all the information they need to make informed purchasing decisions. One small step for NutriGold, one giant leap for supplement consumers everywhere!
Is Hawthorn GOLD™ free of allergens and GMOs?
Hawthorn GOLD™ is verified free of egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish and soy by an independent, third-party lab. It is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is Hawthorn GOLD™ suitable for vegans/vegetarians?
Hawthorn GOLD™ does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
How long do I have to take Hawthorn GOLD™ before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most herbal supplements, including Hawthorn GOLD™, need to be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness.
Is Hawthorn GOLD™ suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.
What are the side effects and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Hawthorn GOLD™?
Hawthorn GOLD™ does not have any known side effects or interactions and is generally well-tolerated by most individuals. However, it is always recommended to consult your healthcare provider before taking any supplements if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, and/or taking any OTC or prescription medications for a health condition.
Is Hawthorn GOLD™ safe for long-term use?
Hawthorn GOLD™ should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when used as directed and under the guidance of an experienced herbalist or other healthcare provider.
