Abstract:

Globe amaranth (Gomphrena globosa L.) is a flowering plant widely recognized for its vibrant inflorescences and potential medicinal properties. This research investigates the chemical composition of globe amaranth flowers and explores their traditional and contemporary medicinal uses. Through comprehensive phytochemical analysis, the study identifies key bioactive compounds, including flavonoids, saponins, and betacyanins, which contribute to the plant's antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial activities. The findings underscore the significance of Gomphrena globosa in traditional medicine and its potential applications in modern therapeutic practices.
