Methylated flavone derivative contained in e.g. Orthosiphonis folium, the cat's beard, and in orange oil. In experimental approaches it could be proven that sinensitin as well as the flavone derivative eupatorin (also detectable in Orthosiphon-stamineus extracts) have anti-inflammatory properties. For sinensitin,antiproliferative and antiangionetic effects have also been demonstrated.
