  • Resumen
    • lnflammation is an organic reactive defense mechanism against exogenous and endogenous stimuli. lnflammation has tumor (swelling), rubor (redness), dolor (pain) and calor (heat), as ancient greeks said. Plants like Chamomilla recutita are studied extensively for its antiinflammatory properties. Several phytochemical families, specially flavonoids, iridoids, polysacharides and phenols are identified as inductors of theses properties. Many tropical plants are newly introduced as antiinflammatory agents, like Sizygium aromaticum, Boswellia serrata, Schinus therebenthifolius. Others, like Harpagophytum, procumbens or Sabal serrulata, instead of its tropical origin, are best known and used in western countries.
