Throughout history, the use of plants has played a role in the development of medical treatments. As science and technology have advanced, the routes of administration, extraction processes, and research involving plant derivatives have improved, leading to the adoption of the term 'Flavonoids' to refer to a secondary metabolite in plants, which varies according to the species or fruit. Plants and their derivatives have been extensively investigated, revealing benefits in the treatment of a broad spectrum of diseases, including anticoagulants (warfarin), headache management (ergotamine), antiarrhythmics (digoxin), among others. The use of flavonoids in the central nervous system has been studied in models of nerve regeneration, prompting the extrapolation of studies focused on peripheral nervous system treatment, which is a novel topic of interest in the scientific community.
