Chrysanthemum Flowers’ Antitumor Effects

According to an MTT assay (a colorimetric assay for assessing cell metabolic activity), chrysanthemin contributes to suppression of prostate cancer cell production, inducing dose-dependent and time-dependent cytotoxic effects in them. Chrysanthemin, which is the 3-glucoside of cyanidin, is a member of the anthocyanin class of natural commodities. It can be segregated from various plants such as roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa), maral root (Rhaponticum carthamoides), some Viburnum species, and the plant chrysanthemum. It can also be detected in food plants such as European elderberry, lychee, peach, and soybean seed coats.
