α-Asarone was used in the synthesis of series of α-asarone isomers and were investigated for their hypolipidemic and antiplatelet activities. It is used in the synthesis of anti-inflammatory neolignan. Also used in lignan syntheses for antiallergic agents. It is clinically used as medication for treating epilepsy, cough, bronchitis and asthma. It exhibits neuroprotective, anti-oxidative, anticonvulsive and cognitive enhancing action.
