Screening of Malaysian indigenous microalgae for antioxidant properties and nutritional value
TLDR
This study illustrates that some microalgae such as I. galbana and C. calcitrans have the potential to be used as natural sources of antioxidants with high nutritional value and showed the highest antioxidant activity in FTC and TBA assays.
A labdane diterpene glucoside from the rhizomes of Curcuma mangga.
TLDR
A new labdane diterpene glucoside, curcumanggosides, together with nine known compounds, including labda-8(17),12-diene-15,16-dial, and scopoletin showed significant antioxidant activity and Zerumin B, demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxyCurcumin and curcumin also exhibited cytotoxic activity against a panel of five human tumor cell lines.
Evaluation of wound healing properties of bioactive aqueous fraction from Moringa oleifera Lam on experimentally induced diabetic animal model
TLDR
The findings suggest that aqueous fraction of M. oleifera containing Vicenin-2 active compound may accelerate wound healing in hyperglycemic condition.
Antioxidant and α-glucosidase inhibitory activities of the leaf and stem of selected traditional medicinal plants
TLDR
Neptunia oleracea could be suggested as a potential natural source of antioxidant and antidiabetic compounds that can be used for the prevention or treatment of diabetes.
Influence of Different Extraction Media on Phenolic Contents and Antioxidant Capacity of Defatted Dabai (Canarium odontophyllum) Fruit
Dabai (Canarium odontophyllum) is a potential “functional fruit”. Future commercialization of dabai fat as healthy oil may result in the accumulation of defatted dabai as a by-product. This study was
Anti- and Pro-Lipase Activity of Selected Medicinal, Herbal and Aquatic Plants, and Structure Elucidation of an Anti-Lipase Compound
TLDR
To evaluate the aqueous methanolic extracts of ninety eight medicinal, herbal and aquatic plant materials from Malaysia for their effect on porcine pancreatic lipase (PPL) activity and to identify the structure of an anti-lipase compound from one of the sources, the degree of inhibition was quantified as relative to orlistat activity against PPL (orlistat equivalents).
