Apigenin 98%, a medicinal plant-derived flavone, is present in chamomile. Apigenin has been the subject of numerous scientific studies due to its potential antineoplastic, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-stress, pro-mitochondrial, neuroprotective, and adaptive properties.
Apigenin is a powerful antineoplastic with demonstrated efficacy in precluding and reversing aberrant skin developments such as moles. It has been clinically verified to treat and impede numerous skin malignancies, exhibiting an anti-tumoral effect. Due to its natural UV-protective effect, studies have shown that Apigenin can effectively shield skin from damaging sun exposure. Additionally, Apigenin has been found to reduce cutaneous inflammation, making it helpful in alleviating dermatitis and other inflammatory skin conditions. Finally, Apigenin improves the overall health and functioning of the skin, especially the epidermal permeability barrier homeostasis, which strengthens the skin's extrinsic immunity.
Apigenin's anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic qualities make it a beneficial substance for the treatment of skin scarring, scalp fibrosis, and baldness. In addition, it helps reduce inflammation by suppressing the release of inflammatory mediators such as nitric oxide (NO), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), and multiple Th1 cytokines.
Apigenin's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties are well-known for its efficacy against hair loss, including baldness. Oxidative stress and inflammation can actually damage hair follicles, preventing further growth and leading to a shiny scalp appearance. Apigenin helps to combat these issues, aiding in healthy hair growth. Inflammation and oxidative stress can cause a significant disruption in the normal functioning of hair follicles. Apigenin's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce the negative consequences of inflammation and potentially restore balance to fibrotic tissue in the scalp.
