Intestinal bacterial metabolism of flavonoids and its relation to some biological activities
Flavonoid glycosides were metabolized to phenolic acids via aglycones by human intestinal microflora producing α-rhamnosidase, exo-β-glucosidase, endo-β-glucosidase and/or β-glucuronidase. Rutin,Expand

Transformation of ginseng saponins to ginsenoside rh2 by acids and human intestinal bacteria and biological activities of their transformants
When ginseng water extract was incubated at 60°C in acidic conditions, its protopanaxadiol ginsenosides were transformed to ginsenoside Rg3 and ▵20-ginsenoside Rg3. However, protopanaxadiol glycosideExpand

Metabolism of 20(S)- and 20(R)-ginsenoside Rg3 by human intestinal bacteria and its relation to in vitro biological activities.
When ginsenoside Rg3 was anaerobically incubated with human fecal microflora, all specimens metabolized ginsenoside Rg3 to ginsenoside Rh2 and protopanaxadiol. The main metabolite was ginsenosideExpand

Metabolism of puerarin and daidzin by human intestinal bacteria and their relation to in vitro cytotoxicity.
When puerarin or daidzin were incubated for 24 h with human intestinal bacteria, two metabolites, daidzein and calycosin, were produced from them, respectively. The metabolic time course of puerarinExpand
