Ambrette (Abelmoschus moschatus)



Interactions

Ambrette/Drug Interactions:
  • Antidiabetic agentsAntidiabetic agents: In animal study, myricetin, isolated from the aerial part of Abelmoschus moschatus, improved insulin sensitivity, enhanced glucose utilization, and lowered plasma glucose (63; 64; 65). Theoretically, concurrent use of ambrette and antidiabetic agents may cause additive glucose lowering and increase the risk of hypoglycemia.
  • OpioidsOpioids: In animal study, myricetin, isolated from the aerial part of Abelmoschus moschatus, increased beta-endorphin secretion and activated opioid mu-receptors of peripheral tissues (64). The effects of opioids and ambrette are not well understood.
  • PhotosensitizersPhotosensitizers: Based on secondary sources, ambrette may cause hyperpigmentation and increase sensitivity to sun (52). Theoretically concurrent use of ambrette and photosensitizers may increase the risk of photosensitivity.

Ambrette/Herb/Supplement Interactions:
  • HypoglycemicsHypoglycemics: In animal study, myricetin, isolated from the aerial part of Abelmoschus moschatus, improved insulin sensitivity, enhanced glucose utilization, and lowered plasma glucose (63; 64; 65). Theoretically, concurrent use of ambrette and antidiabetic agents may cause additive glucose lowering and increase the risk of hypoglycemia.
  • OpioidsOpioids: In animal study, myricetin, isolated from the aerial part of Abelmoschus moschatus, increased beta-endorphin secretion and activated opioid mu-receptors of peripheral tissues (64).
  • PhotosensitizersPhotosensitizers: Based on secondary sources, ambrette may cause hyperpigmentation and increase sensitivity to sun (52). Theoretically concurrent use of ambrette and photosensitizers may increase the risk of photosensitivity.

Ambrette/Food Interactions:
  • Insufficient available evidence.

Ambrette/Lab Interactions:
  • EndorphinsEndorphins: In animal study, myricetin, isolated from the aerial part of Abelmoschus moschatus, increased beta-endorphin secretion (64).
  • GlucoseGlucose: In animal study, myricetin, isolated from the aerial part of Abelmoschus moschatus, enhanced glucose utilization and lowered plasma glucose (63; 64; 65).
