Plants have been traditionally used for the treatment of different types of illness, due to biomolecules with recognised benefits. Rosaceae family is used in traditional Galician medicine. The following plants Agrimonia eupatoria, Crataegus monogyna, Filipendula ulmaria, Geum urbanum, Potentilla erecta and Rosa canina are usually found in treatments. The aim of this study is to perform an ethnobotanical review about the bioactive compounds of these plants and their different bioactivities, both… Expand
Traditional plants from Asteraceae family as potential candidates for functional food industry.
Phenolic compounds, essential oils, and sesquiterpene lactones are some of the most important compounds, being related to different bioactivities, which could be interesting for the development of new functional foods. Expand
Culinary and nutritional value of edible wild plants from northern Spain rich in phenolic compounds with potential health benefits.
Wild edible plants (WEPs) are considered as promising sources of essential compounds needed not only in human diet including carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids but also of other minor compounds as phenols, vitamins, or carotenoids that have shown numerous beneficial bioactivities. Expand
Antidiabetic potential of the isolated fractions from the plants of Rosaceae family in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
Nectarine and peach extracts’ anti-diabetic properties improved insulin secretion and pancreatic beta-cell function and subsequently led to restoring pancreatic islet mass in STZ-induced diabetic rats. Expand
Status and Challenges of Plant-Anticancer Compounds in Cancer Treatment
Although more research is still necessary to develop more efficient and safe phytochemical drugs, more of these compounds might be used in future cancer therapies, as some strategies to face the limitations have been considered. Expand
Rapid characterization of hypanthium and seed in wild and cultivated rosehip: application of Raman microscopy combined with multivariate analysis
The differences observed between the rosehip samples may be attributed to abiotic factors (growing, ripening and storage conditions), which had a significant impact on the carotenoid and polyphenols biosynthesis. Expand
Effect of treatments on seed dormancy breaking, seedling growth, and seedling antioxidant potential of Agrimonia eupatoria L.
Abstract Agrimonia eupatoria L. is an important medicinal plant of the Rosaceae family. Antioxidant and volatile components have been identified in this herb. The seed dormancy of A. eupatoria causesExpand
Black-box modelling, bi-objective optimization and ASPEN batch simulation of phenolic compound extraction from Nauclea latifolia root
Aspen Batch Process Developer (ABPD) V10 simulation model is reasonably reliable for the scale-up design engineering of the phenolic extract production from NLR and gives mean relative deviation error of 3.75%. Expand
Phytoconstituents and Bioactivity of Plants of the Genus Spiraea L. (Rosaceae): A Review
The genus Spiraea L. belongs to the Rosaceae Juss. family and includes more than 100 species distributed in the temperate zone and subtropical zone of the Northern Hemisphere at the center of speciesExpand


The use of medicinal plants as immunostimulants in aquaculture: A review
Medicinal plants show their main properties as growth promoters, immune enhancers, where they act as antibacterial and antiviral agents to the host immune system, although the mechanisms are not fully understood. Expand
Antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of different solvent extracts of the medicinal plant Geum urbanum L.
The methanol extracts of the roots and aerial parts of G. urbanum and their fractions were investigated for antibacterial and radical scavenging activity and revealed that G.urbanum L. is a perspective medicinal plant and deserves further, more detailed studies. Expand
Comparing the composition and bioactivity of Crataegus Monogyna flowers and fruits used in folk medicine.
This study shows the potential of different parts of Crataegus monogyna as sources of several compounds, including nutrients and nutraceuticals, and supports the documented nutritional and medicinal impact of this species. Expand
Polyphenolic Composition of Crataegus monogyna Jacq.: From Chemistry to Medical Applications
A critical review of the available scientific literature about pharmacological activities as well as botanical aspects, phytochemistry and clinical impacts of C. monogyna is provided, suggesting that the toxicity of hawthorn is negligible. Expand
Substituting medicinal plants through drug synthesis
Plants are inevitable part of human existence since prehistoric times because of their diverse uses in daily livelihood and their immense capability of curing intricate human diseases and their over-exploitation results in loss of diversity of medicinal plants. Expand
Potentilla--a review of its phytochemical and pharmacological profile.
This comprehensive review provides a botanical description of Potentilla species and their phytochemical constituents in the aerial and underground parts and recommends that future efforts should concentrate more on in vitro and in vivo studies and also on clinical trials in order to confirm traditional wisdom in the light of a rational phytotherapy.

Extracts of Agrimonia eupatoria L. as sources of biologically active compounds and evaluation of their antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antibiofilm activities.
The strongest antimicrobial activity was detected on G+ bacteria, especially on probiotic species, and the acetone extract demonstrated the highest activity. Expand
Are polyphenol antioxidants at the root of medicinal plant anti-cancer success?
Most plant products with consistently reported anti-cancer efficacy contains high levels of polyphenols or other potent antioxidants and their mechanisms of action correlate to that reported for isolated antioxidants in the context of cancer, suggesting that natural products may indeed become the panacea against this chronic disease.
