The purpose of the present study was to investigate the antioxidant activity and fructans content in ethanol and water extracts of roots of elecampane (Inula helenium L.), a Bulgarian medicinal plant. The extraction procedure included 95% (v/v) ethanol extraction and subsequent water treatment. The antioxidant activity was evaluated by several reliable methods such as DPPH-, ABTS-, FRAP- and CUPRAC-assays, as well as the total phenolic content. In addition, the total fructans and sugar content…

Anti-urease, total phenolic content and antioxidant activities of some Inula l. (Asteraceae) taxa in Turkey

Results obtained from this study demonstrate that Inula species might be utilized as a probable natural source in the pharmaceutical and food industries but further and more specific studies are needed to determine active antioxidative and anti-urease compounds in the extracts.

Biological Activities and Chemical Profile of Gentiana asclepiadea and Inula helenium Ethanolic Extracts

The results pointed out important constituents such as secoiridoid glycoside, phenolic acids, and flavonoids and promising antioxidant properties of ethanolic extracts obtained from Gentiana asclepiadea L. roots that support the ethnomedicinal recommendations of these species and highlight them as valuable sources of bioactive compounds.

Ultrasound and Microwave-Assisted Extraction of Elecampane (Inula helenium) Roots

UAE was evaluated as a promising approach for the simultaneous extraction of bioactive compounds (dietary fibers and antioxidants) from elecampane roots in comparison with microwave irradiation.

Antioxidants and carbohydrate content in infusions and microwave extracts from eight medicinal plants

Article history: Received on: 19/06/2017 Accepted on: 30/08/2017 Available online: 30/10/2017 The aims of the current research were to evaluate and to compare the antioxidant activity and the content

Comparative effects of n-hexane and methanol extracts of elecampane (Inula helenium L.) rhizome on growth performance, carcass traits, feed digestibility, intestinal antioxidant status and ileal microbiota in broiler chickens

Overall, MEER seems to be a better choice of treatment owing to its more effective benefits on broiler performance, ileal microbiota, gut morphology and antioxidant ability of the intestinal mucosa.

Antioxidant and chemical properties of Inula helenium root extracts

AbstractThe objective of the paper was to investigate the chemical composition of Inula helenium roots extracts and to evaluate the antioxidant potential conferred by the chemical constituents. GC/MS

EVALUATION OF FRUCTAN CONTENTS IN THE TAPROOTS OF PLANTS LACTUCA SERRIOLA L. AND SONCHUS OLERACEUS L.

The roots of two widespread plants in Bulgariaprickly lettuce and annual sow thistle are evaluated as a source of inulin-type fructans as the fructoligosacharides fraction dominates in ethanolic extracts to conclude that the roots are rich source of fructan.

Evaluation of Bulgarian medicinal plants as a potential source of inulin-type prebiotics.

It has been found that the amounts of fructooligosaccharides and inulin were the highest in roots of the plants collected in the autumn season as in taproots of common chicory and up to 34 g/100 g d.w in dandelion roots, respectively.

Phenolics and betacyanins in red beetroot (Beta vulgaris) root: distribution and effect of cold storage on the content of total phenolics and three individual compounds.

The distribution of total phenolics and main betacyanins in red beetroot (Beta vulgaris) root was determined, and tentative identifications of betanidin and feruloylamaranthin were made.

Ultrasound-Assisted Extraction of Total Phenolic Compounds from Inula helenium

The results showed that high amounts of phenolic compounds can be extracted from I. helenium by ultrasound-assisted extraction technology.

THE QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF THE INULA HELENIUM L . SPECIES

The present paper aims to achieve a study referring to the qualitative and quantitative chemical composition of Inula helenium L., a species known in this country under the name of horse-heal, which has therapeutic use in human and veterinary medicine and has antiinflamatory properties.

Ultrasound-assisted extraction of alantolactone and isoalantolactone from Inula helenium roots

Comparison with classical extraction methods showed that the amounts of alantolactone and isoalantlactone achieved by UAE with 70 and 96% EtOH for 30 min at room temperature were higher or almost equal to those obtained by maceration for 24 hours.
