A review on metabolites and pharmaceutical potential of food legume crop mung bean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek)

Being rich in nutritional value and other phytochemical components, the plant can be explored further for its pharmaceutical properties and used as an efficient food additive in the preparation of different types of dietary supplements or food-derived drugs.

Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Colon Cancer Activities of Mung Bean Grown in Burkina Faso

Widely used in traditional medicine in Asia and recently introduced in Burkina Faso under the name Beng-tigré, mung bean is a legume consumed throughout the world and more so in India. The objective

Flavonoids from the mung bean coat promote longevity and fitness in Caenorhabditis elegans.

MBCE improved longevity, stress-resistance and fitness by mediating the mitochondrial function, mimicking calorie restriction, and altering histone modification, and these findings provide direct evidence for the anti-aging effects of mung beans.

Elucidation of the potential antioxidant compound and mechanism of mung bean using network pharmacology and in vitro anti-oxidative activity

In vitro antioxidant activity tests showed that the bioactive ingredients of mung beans had great antioxidant activity, and network pharmacology analysis revealed the underlying molecular mechanisms of oxidative and free radical damage.

Fortification of bioactive components in mung bean grains through germination and evaluation of their cytotoxic activity in colorectal adenocarcinoma cells

This study aimed to evaluate the changes in the chemical composition, bioactive compounds, and their relationship with cytotoxicity in colorectal adenocarcinoma cells as a function of the time of

Nutritional, phytochemical and antioxidant properties of 24 mung bean (Vigna radiate L.) genotypes

Abstract This study aimed to investigate the proximate and phytochemicals present in seeds of 24 mung bean ( Vigna radiate L.) genotypes from four provinces of China for estimating their nutritional

Nutritional value, Ethnomedicine, Phytochemistry and pharmacology of Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek

Flavonoids and phenols are reported from this plant, andioxidant, antidiabetic and hypocholestrolemic activities are also shown by Vigna radiata.

An in vivo study on the use of local phaseolus shoots in food

Findings obtained; even if bean sprouts show that they can be used as an antioxidant source in nutrition, they are needed extensive studies on safely usage in terms of creatures.

Effect of Germination and Illumination on Melatonin and Its Metabolites, Phenolic Content, and Antioxidant Activity in Mung Bean Sprouts

Mung bean (Vigna radiata L.) sprouts are increasingly consumed and have become part of a healthy diet. The sprouts are composed of proteins, carbohydrates, and biochemical compounds. During



A review of phytochemistry, metabolite changes, and medicinal uses of the common food mung bean and its sprouts (Vigna radiata)

This review provides insight into the nutritional value of mung beans and its sprouts, discussing chemical constituents that have been isolated in the past few decades, such as flavonoids, phenolic acids, organic acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, and lipids.

Effect of germination on phytochemical profiles and antioxidant activity of mung bean sprouts (Vigna radiata).

Germination of mung beans dramatically increased vitamin C content in mung bean sprouts in a time-dependent manner and reached the peak on day 8 of germination up to 285 mg/100 g DW, almost 24 times higher than the initial concentration in mng bean seeds.

Antioxidant and antidiabetic activities of black mung bean (Vigna radiata L.).

Black mug bean Xiaoqu 7110 had the highest content of bound phenolic acids and exhibited the strongest antioxidant capacities and exhibited higher antidiabetic activities as compared to the other tested mung beans.

Potential of Vigna radiata (L.) sprouts in the management of inflammation and arthritis in rats: Possible biochemical alterations.

The possible role of Vigna radiata in the therapeutics of arthritis is suggested, as it exhibited significant membrane stabilization activity and protein denaturation activity, and significantly attenuated the biochemical changes induced by administration of complete Freund's adjuvant.

Impact of Bioprocessing on phenolic content & antioxidant activity of mung seeds to improve hypoglycemic functionality

The results suggest that the dietary fungal bioprocessing improves the anti-diabetic potential of mungbean extracts, potentially through modulation of the phenolic profile of the extract, and suggest that enzyme inhibitory activity may be linked to phenolic antioxidant mobilization during biop rocessing.

Health-beneficial properties of potato and compounds of interest.

A long-term study investigating the association between potato consumption and diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer while controlling for fat intake is needed.
