2+ chelating ability] of some tropical green leafy vegetables; Talinium triangulare , Ocimum gratissimum , Amaranthus hybridus , Telfairia occidentalis, Ipomea batata , Cnidoscolous aconitifolius,Expand
Comparative Study on the Inhibitory Effect of Caffeic and Chlorogenic Acids on Key Enzymes Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease and Some Pro-oxidant Induced Oxidative Stress in Rats’ Brain-In Vitro
TLDR
One possible mechanism through which the phenolic acids exert their neuroprotective properties is by inhibiting AChE and BChE activities as well as preventing oxidative stress-induced neurodegeneration. Expand
ENHANCEMENT OF TOTAL PHENOLICS AND ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES OF SOME TROPICAL GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES BY STEAM COOKING
ABSTRACT This study sought to evaluate the effect of steam cooking on the vitamin C, total phenolics, total flavonoid and antioxidant properties (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl [DPPH] free radicalExpand
Caffeic and chlorogenic acids inhibit key enzymes linked to type 2 diabetes (in vitro): a comparative study
TLDR
The esterification of caffeic acid with quinic acid, producing chlorogenic acid, reduces their ability to inhibit α-amylase and α-glucosidase activities, which could be part of the possible mechanism by which the phenolic acids exert their antidiabetic effects. Expand
Antioxidant and inhibitory properties of Clerodendrum volubile leaf extracts on key enzymes relevant to non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and hypertension
Abstract To characterize the interaction of phenolic (free and bound) extracts from white butterfly (Clerodendrum volubile P. Beauv) leaves with key enzymes relevant to non-insulin dependent diabetesExpand
Modulatory effect of protocatechuic acid on cadmium induced nephrotoxicity and hepatoxicity in rats in vivo
TLDR
It is suggested that PCA may protect against cadmium-induced toxicity in the kidney and liver and decrease in ALT, AST and ALP activity were noticed in groups administered different doses of PCA. Expand
Water extractable phytochemicals from some Nigerian spices inhibit Fe2+-induced lipid peroxidation in rat's brain - in vitro.
This study sought to assess the ability of the aqueous extract of some Nigerian spices [ Monodora myristica (Africa nutmeg), Xylopia aethiopica (Ethiopian pepper), Syzygium aromaticum (TropicalExpand
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitory activity, antioxidant properties and phenolic composition of two Aframomum species
TLDR
Inhibitory effect of these extracts on acetylcholinesterase activity and their antioxidant property could be attributed to the combined effect of phenolic and non-phenolic constituents of the seeds. Expand
Comparative study of the aqueous and ethanolic extract of Momordica foetida on the phenolic content and antioxidant properties.
The present study was designed to evaluate and compare the phenolic (total phenols and flavonoid) contents and antioxidant activity of aqueous extract of Momordica foetida (AEMF) and ethanolicExpand
