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.

Isolation of bioactive peptides and multiple nutraceuticals of antidiabetic and antioxidant functionalities through sprouting: Recent advances.

The sprouting route for the isolation of peptides and glucosinolates, and for the enhancement of total phenolic contents, polyunsaturated fatty acid profiles, and other bioactive constituents was explored.



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.

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.

Mangos and their bioactive components: adding variety to the fruit plate for health.

The foundation of research supporting the potential role of mangos in reducing risk for inflammation- and metabolically-based chronic diseases is growing and new insights on the benefits of mango for brain, skin and intestinal health are explored.

Antioxidant Properties of the Mung Bean Flavonoids on Alleviating Heat Stress

It is demonstrated that mung bean soup can play additional roles to prevent heat stress injury and characterization of the mechanisms underlying mungbean beneficial effects should help in the design of diet therapy strategies to alleviate heat stress.

Antioxidant and Myocardial Preservation Activities of Natural Phytochemicals from Mung Bean (Vigna radiata L.) Seeds.

The results demonstrated that 2, 3, and MBS had a significant protective effect against ISO-induced myocardial ischemia and can be regarded as a potential new source of antioxidants andMyocardial preservation agents.

Antioxidant activity in mung bean sprouts and safety of extracts for cosmetic use.

Results of RBC (hemolysis ratio), CAM (vascular morphological), and human skin patch tests (changed subjects) illustrated extracts of mung bean sprouts are safe and can be used as additives in antiaging cosmetic products.
