There is promise for this herb as a natural fat burner since the 70% ethanolic extract has been noted to stimulate leptin (hormone) production in fat cells and increase in leptin has been noted in serum following oral ingestion of the leaf extract.
Recently, the potent antiangiogenic activity of O. stamineus and its prevention activity against human breast tumors were reported.
O. stamineus also suppressed vascularization (abnormal formation of blood vessels) and inhibited growth of implanted human colon tumors. The high amount of rosmarinic acid and flavonoids in the ethanolic extract plays a major role in these activities.
