Tirotundin is a plant-derived sesquiterpene lactone isolated from Tithonia rotundifolia, which acts a dual activator of PPARα and PPARγ [1]. This is one of the active components found in Chinese traditional medicines used to treat diabetes and hepatitis. Activation of PPARγ is responsible for the compound's anti-diabetic effect. Tirotundin-induced activation of PPARα may improve dyslipidemia.
