What is Apigenin powder?

Apigenin powder is a natural product belonging to the flavone class that is the aglycone of several naturally occurring glycosides. It is a yellow crystalline solid that has been used to dye wool. It is extracted from Apium graveolens var.dulce, Citrus maxima (Citrus grandis Osbeck), or Matricaria chamomilla.

Apigenin Scientific Info

Apigenin is described as a nonmutagenic bioflavonoid which is presented in leafy plants and vegetables and has significant chemopreventive activity against UV-radiation. Current research trials indicate that it may reduce DNA oxidative damage; inhibit the growth of human leukemia cells and induced these cells to differentiate; inhibit cancer cell signal transduction and induce apoptosis; act as an anti-inflammatory; and as an anti-spasmodic or spasmolytic.

As with many flavonoids, it has potential to reduce the risk of cancer since it has anti-tumor activity. It also could potentially be useful in allergic conditions since it can have anti-inflammatory properties.

Apigenin Benefits

Apigenin may also stimulate adult neurogenesis, stimulate adult neurogenesis in vivo and in vitro, by promoting neuronal differentiation and may be useful for stimulating adult neurogenesis and for the treatment of neurological diseases, disorders and injuries, by stimulating the generation of neuronal cells in the adult brain.

It readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and has not demonstrated toxicity at high doses. It could thus prevent amyloid beta deposition and tau phosphorylation due to neuroinflammation, which can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

Through effects on cell signaling, inflammation, cell cycle, and protease production, it has demonstrated effectiveness against a wide range of cancer types, while not showing toxicity to normal cells.
