Abstract

Anthocyanins belong to the flavonoids class of polyphenols and they are water soluble dark colored natural pigments from fruits and vegetables. Dietary consumption of anthocyanins is high compared to other flavonoids, owing to their wide distribution in plant materials. Anthocyanins are the active component in several herbal folk medicines due to its multifaceted medicinal properties. This review discusses the anthocyanins as multitarget drugs, which posses antioxidant, antidiabetic, antihyperlipidemic, anti inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, antiulcer, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, neuroprotective role. Several chemotherapeutic activities were observed in vitro and in vivo experimentation on cell-line studies, animal models, and clinical trials. This property of anthocyanins could be promising in providing health benefits against chronic diseases.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 29 July 2017.
All research outputs
#6,898,705
of 11,531,674 outputs
Outputs from Current Pharmaceutical Design
#1,581
of 2,471 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#138,722
of 262,849 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Pharmaceutical Design
#13
of 44 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,531,674 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,471 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.4. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,849 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 44 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its contemporaries.
