Plant flavonoids as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors in regulation of hypertension

  title={Plant flavonoids as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors in regulation of hypertension},
  author={B. W. Nileeka Balasuriya and H. P. Vasantha Rupasinghe},
Background: Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is a key component in the renin angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS) which regulates blood pressure. As the over expression of RAAS is associated with vascular hypertension, ACE inhibition has become a major target control for hypertension. The research on potential ACE inhibitors is expanding broadly and most are focused on natural product derivatives such as peptides, polyphenolics, and terpenes. Plant polyphenolics are antioxidant molecules… CONTINUE READING
