  • Salacia chinensis Linn. (Syn. S. prinoides DC.) is a woody climbing shrub, an endangered medicinal plant naturally found in tropical Africa, Sri Lanka, China, Vietnam, Thailand and southern regions of India. A large number of biological active compounds such as salacinol, kotalanol, neokotalanol, neosalacinol, salasol and mangiferin have been isolated from S. chinensis which show various medicinal properties. The different parts and water extraction of the whole plant have been extensively used… CONTINUE READING
