Cultivated chrysanthemums are more showy than their wild counterparts. Flower heads come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be daisy-like or ornamental, such as pompons or buttons. Many hybrids and hundreds of cultivars have been created for horticultural use in this species. Other hues, such as white, purple, and red, are available in addition to the usual yellow. Chrysanthemum blooms are made up of a large number of individual flowers (florets), each of which can produce a seed. The disc florets are located in the middle of the bloom head, while the ray florets are located on the periphery. The ray florets are called imperfect flowers because they only have female reproductive organs, but the disc florets have both male and female reproductive organs, making them complete flowers.
Chrysanthemum has not been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment or prevention of cancer.
Chrysanthemum is a sunflower family blooming plant. It’s been used in traditional medicine for generations, but there’s been little study on it. It may be beneficial to develop as a treatment for bone disorders and diabetes, according to lab research. In the lab, chrysanthemum extracts have been shown to destroy cancer cells, but it is unknown if this action happens in the human body.
This botanical should be avoided by patients on immune-suppressing medications, since it may exacerbate the side effects of these medications.
Traditional Chinese medicine uses chrysanthemum to cure angina, but no study has been done on it.
Cold prevention and treatment
Although chrysanthemum is used in traditional Chinese medicine to cure the common cold, it has not been researched in humans.
To bring down the temperature
Traditional Chinese medicine uses chrysanthemum as a fever reliever, although human data is limited.
To lower high blood pressure levels
Clinical trials have not been done on chrysanthemum, which is used to treat high blood pressure in traditional Chinese medicine.
In order to decrease inflammation
Laboratory research show that chrysanthemum has a range of characteristics, including anti-inflammatory capabilities, however human trials are limited.
You’re on anti-immunosuppressive medication: A kidney transplant patient who drank chrysanthemum tea was discovered to have dangerous amounts of these medicines in his blood, and lab research revealed that chrysanthemum was likely a significant cause.
You’re using P-glycoprotein substrate medicines or Cytochrome P450 3A4 inhibitors: Chrysanthemum has the potential to change their effects.
Ragweed is an allergen for you.
Chrysanthemum is a perennial blooming plant that is native to Asia and northeastern Europe and belongs to the Asteraceae family. Traditional medicine uses the floral and aerial portions of several species to treat hypertension, angina, fever, and many inflammatory illnesses. Cytotoxic, antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antiosteoporotic, and neuroprotective effects have been demonstrated in preclinical investigations. Anti-diabetic, anti-hyperlipidemic, and anti-atherosclerotic properties are also found in several species.
Chrysanthemum has also been shown to reverse multidrug resistance in human breast cancer cells, to have anti-angiogenic and antiproliferative properties, and to help mice with cachexia. Clinical studies have not yet been carried out.
Various components, such as phenolic chemicals and chlorogenic acids, have been linked to antioxidant properties. Inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis and tumour necrosis factor-alpha release are two anti-inflammatory strategies. In vitro, tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) activity was related to anti-osteoporotic action of phenolic and flavonoid components from C. indicum flowers. Another C. indicum extract, through upregulating alkaline phosphatase expression and extracellular calcium concentrations, prevented the development of TRAP-positive mature osteoclasts, disturbed bone resorption, and promoted primary osteoblast differentiation.
The anti-inflammatory properties of C. boreale handelin were connected to downregulation of NF-kappaB signalling and pro-inflammatory cytokine generation in animal models. Through the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-alpha-mediated pathway, a polyphenol-rich C. morifolium extract reduced hyperlipidemic fatty liver in mice. In dorsal cutaneous lesions, chrysanthemum substantially lowered serum IgE, IgG1, IL-4, and IFN- levels, as well as mRNA levels of IFN-, IL-4, and IL-13.
Chrysanthemum inhibited P-glycoprotein activity, which reversed multidrug resistance in human breast cancer cells. It inhibited the JAK1/2 and STAT3 signalling pathways, causing death in different tumour cells. The component linarin was found to have antiproliferative properties in lung cancer cells via suppressing the Akt-dependent signalling pathway. C. morifolium showed anti-cachectic benefits in animal models by functioning as a PPAR-gamma ligand, which reduced skeletal muscle alterations in tumor-bearing mice.
Ragweed allergy sufferers should avoid this plant.This botanical should be avoided by transplant patients since it may raise the blood levels of immuno suppressive drugs and increase the risk of toxicity.
