Study on the Anti-Inflammatory Effects of different extracts of dandelion
Edited by Nickole
Dandelion is cheap and rich in resources. It is widely distributed in our country. In recent years, there have been many studies on the anti-inflammatory effects of dandelion, and most is the dandelion extract. But most of them did not clarify which ingredients in dandelion extract have anti-inflammatory effects. The following analyzes is the four common active ingredients in dandelion extract, which are dandelion polysaccharides, dandelion flavone, taraxacum phenolic acid and taraxacum sterol for their actual anti-inflammatory effects.
According to various research data, the study is as below:
1. Dandelion extract has obvious anti-inflammatory effects in vivo. The anti-inflammatory effects of 4 kinds of dandelion extracts were extracted and compared, and it was found that dandelion polysaccharides and taraxacum phenolic acid had no significant improvement effect on the swelling of mice, indicating that dandelion polysaccharides and phenolic acid had no obvious anti-inflammatory effects.
2. Dandelion sterol and dandelion flavone have obvious anti-inflammatory effects in the body; and the effect of flavone is better than sterol. At the same time, the higher the dose of flavonoids, the more obvious the anti-inflammatory effect, which shows that the inhibitory effect of dandelion flavonoids is dose-dependent.
3. Dandelion contains a lot of flavonoids, which are active ingredients with anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory effects. In recent years, there have been many studies on flavonoids and anti-inflammatory. Research has shown that flavonoids, such as flavonoids from Duxiang and total flavonoids from licorice, have a certain effect on inflammation effect.
The anti-inflammatory effect of dandelion flavonoids has been developed in modern pharmacology, but further research is needed. Including the functions and principles of other active ingredients, we can continue to explore in depth. The application of dandelion extract must be more and more extensive.
