Rosmarinic acid, a constituent of the plant, and also isolated from Anchusa
azurea Mill., reportedly demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-ulcer activities (Kuruuzum-Uz et al, 2012).
A relatively higher concentration of sucrose was also reported to be favorable for rosmarinic acid production in Anchusa
officinalis cell culture (De-Eknambul & Ellis 1985), the ajmalicine, serpentine, and tryptamine in Catharanthus roseus cell cultures (Merillon et al.

Apart from Amsinckia, many genera in the Boraginaceae contain distylous members, for example, Anchusa
, Arnebia, Cordia, Cryptantha, Echioides, Lithodora, and Lithospermum (Ganders 1979), but distyly is unknown in other Boraginaceous genera.
