Abstract:
The study Alternanthera brasiliana (L.) Kuntze aims to prove its effectiveness in folk medicine. From the study of their chemical constitution were identified by LC-MS technique three glycosylated flavones than were called 2 ”-O-ramnosylvitexin; 4 ’,5,7-trimethoxy-2 ”-O-ramnosylvitexin and Ligustroflavone. The tests showed high antioxidant capacity of the specie and in small concentrations showed too high levels of photoprotection. In addition its high capacity for photoprotection also paves its use in cosmetology. Alternanthera brasiliana is a species extremely promising with all parameters to become a herbal medicine.
