Erica species are generally spread along the coasts of Turkey. There are five Erica species in these regions, namely; E. arborea, E. manipuliflora, E, bocquetii, E. sicula subsp. Libanotica and E. spiculifolia salisb. Among these species, E. manipuliflora is commonly found in Mugla and southwest part of Turkey. Erica species are called as "funda", "puren" or "tree heath" locally in Turkey and contain biologically active compounds such as flavonoids, coumarins and triterpenoids. Since ancient…

Digestibility and Bioavailability of the Active Components of Erica australis L. Aqueous Extracts and Their Therapeutic Potential as Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors
The bioavailability of the components of both extracts, as studied in a Caco-2 cell model, showed that compounds can permeate the membrane, which is a condition to exert their biological activities.
Antiulcer Activity in Rats by Flavonoids of Erica andevalensis Cabezudo‐Rivera
Gastric ulcers induced by oral administration of absolute ethanol were reduced by pretreatment with the highest dose of the ether fraction of the flavonoid extract, however it did not induce significant changes in the amount and glycoprotein content of gastric mucus.
Antioxidant phenolic compounds from the leaves of Erica Arborea (Ericaceae)
Reversed-phase HPLC analyses of the methanol extract of the leaves of Erica arborea afforded a novel phenylpropanoid glucoside, named ericarborin, together with five flavonoids, which were determined by direct comparison of their spectroscopic data with respective literature data.
