Can hawthorn be used to help control stable angina. I

Can hawthorn be used to help control stable angina. I am an older runner that experienced 3 SCA's 3 yrs ago, and have been diagnosed with stable angina, which occurs 2-3 / month at the warm up period of my run. I was prescribed a beta bloc, but angina periods stayed the same - up to 15 times per month. I stopped the beta bloc and started taking l-carnitine, which has brought the angina down to 2-3/month, plus feeling better over all, better oxygen exchange and increased energy. I have read about the affects of hawthorn - lowering blood pressure and cholesterol.
