Vitexin – Flavonoid Profile
Vitexin is a trihydroxyflavone that is produced in bamboo leaves, pearl millet, and passion flower. The more promising studies on vitexin show the flavone may be useful in lessening inflammation, managing diabetes and preventing fertility issues. Vitexin further contributes to the reduction of neural cell death observed in neurodegenerative diseases. Although this review and other recent studies demonstrate its therapeutic effects, further research is needed to substantiate existing findings and accelerate knowledge in this area.
