Background: The effect of capsaicin (the active ingredient in Capsicum frutescens Linn . (Solanacea e) on coagulationwas reported in several studies. Current research is being directed at elucidating if capsaicin has any effect on coagulation. Objectives: To investigate if either the ethyl acetate extract of Capsicum frutescens Linn . ( Solanacea e) (CFE) or capsaicin (FlukaBiotechnika-CPF) on coagulation. Methodss: The effects of ethyl acetate extract of Capsicum frutescens Linn . ( Solanacea…

Multiple inhibitory effects of garlic extracts on cholesterol biosynthesis in hepatocytes
In contrast, nicotinic acid and particularly adenosine caused moderate inhibition of HMG-CoA reductase activity and of cholesterol biosynthesis suggesting that these compounds participate, at least in part, in the early inhibition of sterol synthesis by garlic extracts.
