The study said its extract contains chemical substances such as steroids, triterpenes
, saponins and flavonoids
The early herbalists used the plant as a standard treatment for gangrene, sores, dislocated joints, fistulas, the overgrown liver, and wounds; it contains a remarkable set of compounds for such an insignificant plant principally iridoids, glycosides, anthroquinones, phenols and mono and triterpenes
. And although it was used by 20 th century herbalists to treat tuberculosis and all forms of internal and external bleeding the plant no longer has the prominence it once held.
Numerous diterpenes and triterpenes
have been isolated (Patel, Rojas-Vera, Dacke, 2004), some of them with taxonomic significance such as rubusoside and suavioside (Seto, Tanaka, & Tanaka, 1984).
Paradigm's offerings include Venus Bark Extract (Betula alba bark extract), a unique plant-derived compound of triterpenes
extracted from the outer bark of the white birch tree of North America.
Previous phytochemical studies of this genus yielded; dihydroisocoumarins, benzyl phthalides, favonoids, lignans, neolignans, bibenzyl derivatives, phenolic acid derivatives, kavalactones, sesquiterpenes and triterpenes
(Sari 2012; Granica et al.
These effects can be attributed to the presence of substantial and possible synergies of the chemical components viz., anthraquinones, coumarins, anthracene derivatives, mono-, sesqui- and diterpenes, triterpenes
and steroids, as well as water-soluble tannins.
Constituents of Satureia calamintha, application of Eu(fod)2 to the assignments of methyl resonances of triterpenes
related to 12-ursene, Org.
The phytochemical prospection occurred through characterization reactions, evaluating the presence of phenolic compounds, tannins, flavonoids, free coumarins, anthocyanins, anthraquinone, steroids, triterpenes
, alkaloids, saponins, cardiotonic glycosides, cyanogenic heterosides and reducing sugar, all analyzes were performed in triplicate following methodology adapted by Matos (2009).
Zen Nutrients Onco-V Capsules contain resveratrol, green tea extract, quercetin, turkey tail mushrooms, turmeric, garlic, ginger, ginseng, tocotrienols, triterpenes
, vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, selenium, zinc, manganese, and molybdenum.
Anthraquinones such as chrysophanol (1,8-dihydroxy-3methylanthraquinone) and physcione (1,8-dihydroxy-3methyl-6-methoxy-anthraquinone) (Figure 1), triterpenes
such as lupeol ([beta]-lup-20 (29)-en-3-ol), and flavonoids such as quercetin are commonly identified in various species of Senna.
In addition, several types of terpenoids or terpenes ([C.sub.10][H.sub.16]), such as diterpenes ([C.sub.20]), triterpenes
([C.sub.30]), tetraterpenes ([C.sub.40]), hemiterpenes ([C.sub.5]), and sesquiterpenes ([C.sub.15]), have also effective antifungal activity .
