Thai Indigenous Plants: Focusing on Total Phenolic Content, Antioxidant Activity and Their Correlation on Medicinal Effects

Total phenolic content and antioxidant activity have involved in medicinal effects of plants. The 25 species of Thai indigenous plants were classified into three groups depending on their medicinal

Antioxidant activity and total phenolic content of medicinal plants associated with prevention and treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

In order to find new resources of natural antioxidants, antioxidant activities of 40 medicinal plants associated with prevention and treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases were


Herbal extracts are considered as a good sources of antioxidant compounds. This work describes antioxidant effect of 15 kinds of herbs. Three different antioxidant assays were used, Trolox equivalent

Comparative analysis of bioactive phenolic compounds composition from 26 medicinal plants

Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activities of ethanol soluble organics from water extracts of selected medicinal herbs and their relation with flavonoid and phenolic contents

Background and Objective: Medicinal herbs offer an important traditional way to prevent and cure several diseases such as cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation and cancer as they contain



Antioxidant activity and phenolic compounds in selected herbs.

The antioxidant capacities (oxygen radical absorbance capacity, ORAC) and total phenolic contents in extracts of 27 culinary herbs and 12 medicinal herbs were determined and rosmarinic acid was the predominant phenolic compound in selected herbs.

Antioxidant Activity and Total Phenolics in Selected Fruits, Vegetables, and Grain Products

The antioxidant activities and total phenolics of 28 plant products, including sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, wheat germ, buckwheat, and several fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants were determined.

Antioxidant and antiproliferative activities of common fruits.

Although flavonoids have been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth in vitro, the ability of Flavonoids to limit cancer progression is limited in animal studies, and a potential application is the possible synergisticaction of flavonoid with chemotherapy agents.

Inhibition of carcinogenesis by dietary polyphenolic compounds.

This chapter reviews the inhibition of tumorigenesis by phenolic acids and derivatives, tea and catechins, isoflavones and soy preparations, quercetin and other flavonoids, resveratrol, and lignans as well as the mechanisms involved based on studies in vivo and in vitro.

Antioxidative activity of natural products from plants.

Antioxidant properties of several medicinal mushrooms.

Overall, G. lucidum and G. tsugae were higher in antioxidant activity, reducing power, scavenging and chelating abilities, and total phenol content.
