Besides the alkaloids, the triterpenic heterosides (derived from the quinovic acid) and polyphenols (especially tannin) are also highlighted (PAVEI et al.
Triterpenes and quinovic acid glycosides from Uncaria tomentosa.
tomentosa s bark contains a series of secondary metabolites, such as oxindole alkaloids and polyphenols (flavonoids, proanthocyanidins, tannins) and small concentrations of other secondary metabolites, such as quinovic
acid glycosides, polyhydroxylated triterpenes and saponins (Laus, 2004; Aquino et al.
Chemical studies have revealed the presence of alkaloids, quinovic
acid, glycosides, polyhydroxylated triterpenes, flavonoids and catechins in cat's claw, with some compounds showing a potentiation of phagocytosis by white blood cells.
The Giles' biggest milestone since starting up business has been joining forces with the Quinovic
franchise in June 2007.
1) include five known compounds; mono sodium salt of 3[beta],23-di-0-sulfonyl-23-hydroxyurs-20(21)-en-28-oic acid 28-0-[[beta]-D-glucopyranosyl] ester (Zygofaboside A; 1), (3[beta],4[alpha])-3,23,30-trihydroxyurs-20-en-28-al 3,23-di(sulfate) sodium salt (2), 3[beta]-0-[[beta]-D-2-0-sulfonylglucopyranosyl] quinovic
acid 28-0-[[beta]-D-glucopyranosyl]ester (Zygophyloside G; 3), 3-0-[2-0-sulfo-[beta]-D-quinovopyranoside] quinovic
acid 28-0-[[beta]-D-glucopyranosyl] ester (Zygophyloside E; 4), and 3[beta]-0-[[beta]-D-quinovopyranoside] quinovic
acid 28-0-[[beta]-D-glucopyranosyl] ester(5).
and Admin Secrets have created an alliance with the latter providing administrative support for Quinovic
's new office.
Active components identified in these extracts include different oxindolic alkaloids, indole alkaloids, glycosides (pentacyclic triterpenes with a variety of derivatives such as ursolic acid, quinovic
acid glycosides, sterols and procianidins) and tannins the chemical composition of which can vary depending on their geographical origin and seasonal harvesting (Heitzman et al.
tomentosa revealed the presence of diverse compounds such as alkaloids, quinovic
acid glycosides, polyhydroxylated triterpenes, flavonoids, catechins and sterols (Aquino et al.
Cat's claw has been shown to contain many different chemical constituents, including quinovic
acid glycosides, sterols, tannins, procyanidins, flavonoids, polyhydroxylated triterpenes and at least 17 different alkaloids (Aquino et al.
acid glycosides which have anti-viral activity (Cerri et al.
guianensis, and those which exist provide evidence only for its quinovic
acid glycoside and alkaloid content (Lee et al.
