According to the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health "Phytochemical investigations of the polar extracts afforded four flavonoid glycosides, four phenylpropanoic glycosides, caffeic acid and one iridoid, ajugoside. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are implicated in the aetiology of several inflammatory processes. In the present study polar fractions and isolated compounds from S. perfoliata subsp. perfoliata were evaluated for their antioxidant activity using DPPH spectrophotometric and TBA lipid peroxidation assays, as well as for their antiinflammatory activity using the soybean lipoxygenase bioassay. All extracts and isolated compounds showed significant antioxidant and inhibitory activity against soybean lipoxygenase. These findings give support to the ethnopharmacological use of the plant in the treatment of several inflammatory ailments."
