  • Patent number: 10098921
    Abstract: An anti-gout composition including the mixed extract of Chrysanthemum indicum and Cinnamomum cassia as an active ingredient shows substantially greater inhibitory effects on xanthine oxidase than when Chrysanthemum indicum or Cinnamomum cassia is used separately. An animal model treated with the mixed extract of Chrysanthemum indicum and Cinnamomum cassia experienced a decrease in uric acid in serum and in urine. The mixed extract of Chrysanthemum indicum and Cinnamomum cassia is an active ingredient induced from a natural material, and, accordingly, the mixed extract is safe and a source material therefor is easily provided. Accordingly, the mixed extract can be widely used in gout-related industries.
