Advanced age is a major risk factor for metabolic disorders. Accelerated inflammatory processes with increased age can contribute to the pathogenesis of metabolic disturbances. Chrysin is a natural flavonoid ingredient of honey and propolis. Chrysin has been effective in decreasing cholesterol and glucose levels preventing metabolic disturbances. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of chrysin against age-associated inflammation, hyperglycemia, and hypercholesterolemia. Male Wistar rats (2, 10, and 20 month-old) were intraperitoneally (i.p.) injected with chrysin (20 mg/kg) for 30 days. The findings showed elevated inflammatory cytokines, glucose, and lipid parameters in the sera of aged rats when compared with young ones. However, chrysin treatment ameliorated these alterations. Furthermore, chrysin reduced the levels of adiponectin, HDL-C, and insulin in 20month-old rats. The current study showed that chrysin was effective in attenuating age-related lipid abnormalities, glucose elevation, and inflammation.
