An inflammatory process was elicited by exposing macrophages to LPS. It is remarkable that extracts of the members of the Onagraceae family have diverse biological effects. In the present study, we examine the biological properties of L. These properties are due to the high content of polyphenols, such as tannins and flavonoids.
