-Protect nerve cells from injury and damage through different paths, i.e., activating genes that control brain cell survival by increasing cerebral blood flow via angiogenesis and neurotoxic factors reducing neurogenesis and pro-inflammatory agents produced in the brain due to normal aging and abnormal brain.
-Display a broad-spectrum antiviral activity and anti-HIV.
-To block the infiltration of immune cells and reduce inflammatory responses that are linked with atopic dermatitis/eczema.
-Suppress UVB-induced MMP-9 and VEGF, the causative factors of skin irritation and damage.
