Flavonoids pigments, one of more numerous groups widely distributed of natural constituents, sometimes known as antoxantins, frequently appear in chemical literature, especially in the last 50 years, and they are characterized by their antioxidant activity, free radical scavenging capacity, coronary heart disease prevention, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer activities, while some flavonoids exhibit potential antiviral activities. Gossypitrin (G7G) the main chemical compound present in the petals of the flowers of Talipariti elatum (Sw.) that grow in Cuba was tested to determine its biological activities. This chemical compound is a flavonoid glycoside which is a gossypetin derivative with a sugar moiety attached in C7. flavonoids . This review deals with the structural aspects of G7G and their protective roles against many human diseases.
