Puerarin is an isoflavone with antioxidative ability that may reduce cholesterol level and the risk of cardiovascular diseases. It has also a blood-thinning effect and may help with non-alcoholic fatty liver as well.

Apigenin is a flavonoid found in artichoke, parsley, celery and chamomile tea as well and can block the liver enzyme Cytochrome P450 2C9, which is responsible for the metabolism of many medications.

It is also claimed that apigenin may stimulate the growth of the nerve cells. This is why apigenin might be beneficial in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It possessesantioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties, helping to reduce the risk of cancer and allergies.

Ziziphin is a triterpene glycoside that blocks the ability to feel sweet taste.

Jujube contains a glycoprotein called “mucilage”, which has anti-inflammatory activity in the gastrointestinal system by covering the mucous membranes and protecting them from getting irritated. Mucilage is found in higher amounts in flaxseed, kelp, okra, psyllium, and aloe vera.
