Why is it important?

The importance of α-Spinasterol in human healthcare was not appreciated. Projections in this article show its remarkable value not only as an anti-diabetic compound, but also as an agent to control chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritics. It can prove to be an important molecule for human health care.


Food supplements, value-added products and nutraceutical formulations can be developed with α-spinasterol for the management of diabetes, chronic inflammatory diseases and improving general health. Nature has created the most elegant and safe molecules with immense therapeutic and healthcare values and included them in food/edibles also. One such important emerging molecule is α-spinasterol. We must use it judiciously with our ingenuity for our healthcare.
