What are the benefits of apigenin?

When compared to other flavonoids, it is also an effective anti-inflammatory agent. Because of its antioxidant properties, flavone is used to promote healthy aging and improve skin health. Even topical apigenin is used to treat acne and enhance skin cell proliferation.

Does apigenin boost dopamine levels?

These benefits were linked to a reduction in neuroinflammation and oxidative stress-mediated apoptosis. Apigenin also reduced -synuclein aggregation and altered DA neurotransmission by enhancing dopamine production and D2 receptor expression.

What are the pharmacological uses of apigenin?

Apigenin is used to treat high blood pressure and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anticancer activities. In both in vivo and in vitro investigations, apigenin displayed tumor reduction efficacy against several types of cancer cell lines.
