Abstract

A popular medicinal plant with a long history of traditional usage in many different cultures is Xanthium strumarium, better known by its common name, cocklebur. The phytochemical makeup, pharmacological properties, and possible medical uses of X. strumarium are summarized in this article.
A wide variety of bioactive substances, including as flavonoids, alkaloids, terpenoids, and polysaccharides, define X. strumarium's phytochemistry. Its many pharmacological characteristics, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anticancer, and immunomodulatory activities, are attributed to these phytoconstituents.
Many preclinical investigations have shown how well X. strumarium extracts and isolated chemicals work to treat a range of illnesses, such as skin cancers, gastrointestinal issues, metabolic abnormalities, and respiratory problems. Furthermore, studies have looked into the possibility of X. strumarium having neuroprotective benefits and helping to treat neurological conditions.
Furthermore, X. strumarium has potential in conventional medical systems for the treatment of pain, fever, diabetes, and immune-related illnesses. Additionally, new studies demonstrate its usefulness in fighting bacteria resistant to many drugs and its promise as an adjuvant therapy in the treatment of cancer.
Although X. strumarium has a great therapeutic potential, further study is necessary to understand its mechanisms of action, determine the best dose combinations, and assess its safety profile in clinical settings. All things considered, X. strumarium is a great source of bioactive chemicals with a wide range of pharmacological actions, and it has a lot of potential for the creation of novel therapeutic agents and nutraceuticals.
