  • The present review covers chemistry and bioactivities of anthraquinones, iridoids, and flavonoids from the Morinda genus. The plants of Morinda species, belonging to the Rubiaceae family, have been used as traditional folk medicine with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-tumor, anti-helmin, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and immune enhancing effects. They are rich sources of anthraquinones and iridoids. The relevant 2-methoxy-1,3,6-trihydroxyanthraquinone is one of the most potent quinone… CONTINUE READING
