What is Bellflower Extract?

Platycodon grandiflorum extract is the dried origin remove of Platycodon grandiflorum (Jacq.) A.DC. The primary energetic component is saponins, and also it also has flavonoids, polysaccharides and also anthocyanins, fatty acids and fatty oils, micronutrient as well as amino acids. Anthocyanins have anti-oxidation, get rid of cost-free radicals, minimize blood cholesterol degrees, anti-tumor, anti-mutation and also other effects. Anthocyanins have excellent security, excellent water solubility, high material, and also have the attributes of natural pigments. Therefore, while playing a particular function in managing physical functions in the body, platycodon anthocyanins can also be made use of as healthy food pigments in food and beverages.

Chemical Composition of Bellflower Extract

1. Campanulaceae saponins The main active ingredients of Campanulaceae are saponins, and the saponins of Campanulaceae are all oleanane-type pentacyclic triterpene derivatives, which can be divided into three categories: Campanulaceae acids, Campanulaceae diacids, and telegalic acids.
2. Flavonoids In the early 1980s, 9 kinds of flavonoids were isolated from the aerial part of platycodon grandiflorum, and an anthocyanidin was isolated from its flower; recently, 4 kinds of flavonoids were isolated from the aerial part, mainly apigenin and luteolin; 5 kinds of flavonoids were isolated from its seeds, such as docetaxel and quercetin. Natural flavonoids have small molecular weight, can be quickly absorbed by the human body, enter the blood and tissues, and then exhibit anti-fatigue, capillary expansion, anti-oxidation, anti-aging, anti-mutation, anti-tumor and other effects. Studies have shown that flavonoids have a strong ability to scavenge free radicals, superoxide and hydroxyl radicals, and inhibit lipid peroxidation.
3. The polysaccharides and anthocyanin platycodon polysaccharides were fractionated and purified by DEAE-cellulose, and the three polysaccharide single components PGPsI, PGPsII and PGPsIII were obtained, and their molecular weights were 2640, 89759 and 63453. The components were identified by SephadexG-200 gel chromatography, ultraviolet spectroscopy and iodine reaction, and did not contain nucleic acid, protein and starch. Anthocyanins are glycosides formed by the combination of anthocyanins and sugars through glycosidic bonds. They mainly exist in flowers and fruits, making them appear in different colors such as red, purple red to blue. Bellflower anthocyanins have good stability under most conditions, but in the presence of alkaline and oxidizing agents, the stability of Bellflower anthocyanins is poor. When the concentration was higher, the scavenging efficiency of Vc and platycodon anthocyanins on DPPH would increase exponentially.
4. Fatty acid and fatty oil 34 kinds of fatty acids were isolated and identified from Platycodon grandiflorum fatty oil, including 15 kinds of unsaturated fatty acids, the main types are linoleic acid (42.79%), palmitoleic acid (0.30%), 11-eicosenoic acid (1.53%), linolenic acid (14.02%), etc.; 19 kinds of saturated fatty acids, the main types are palmitic acid (13.71%), stearic acid (1.36%), arachidic acid (0.79%) %), behenic acid (1.78%), lignoceric acid (1.38%), hexacosanoic acid (3.14%), octacosanoic acid (3.51%), etc.
5. Trace elements and amino acids contain Cu, Fe, Mn, Co, Zn, Cr, Mg, Ca, Sr, Li and other trace elements.
6. Contains a variety of amino acids, including 8 kinds of essential amino acids, accounting for 6.44% of the total amino acids. The total amino acid content is as high as 15.01%. Among them, уγ-aminobutyric acid is a neurotransmitter chemical substance that plays an important role in the energy metabolism of the human brain.
7. Others 12 kinds of phenolic acid compounds and their derivatives were identified from the aerial part of Bellflower root; two kinds of phenolic compounds with antioxidant activity were isolated from the petroleum ether extract of Bellflower root. In addition, Campanulaceae also contains steroids (α-spinach, △7-stigmasterol, β-sitosterol, etc.), proteins, alkaloids, volatile oils and other chemical components.

Bellflower Extract Uses

1. Hypoglycemic result
Normal home-free management of Platycodon grandiflorum water or alcohol essence 200 mg/kg can reduce blood glucose, similar to that of tolbutamide. It additionally has hypoglycemic result on speculative tetrachloropyrimidine diabetic person rabbits, and can hinder the rise of food-induced blood glucose. The reduction of liver glycogen can additionally be recuperated after medicine, and the effect of alcohol extract is more powerful than that of water remove.

2. expectorant, antitussive result
Both Bellflower Remove and root water preparation can reduce the discharging of phenol red, and also have an extremely significant expectorant result. The primary reason is that the saponins consisted of in it boost the glossopharyngeal nerve suggestion when administered by mouth, which reflexively causes hypersecretion of the breathing system, dilutes the spit and also makes it simple to cough up. Platycodon saponins D and D3 may be effective ingredients for lowering phlegm. Researches have shown that platycodon saponin capsules have obvious anti-inflammatory, coughing, asthma and also expectorant results, as well as have certain precautionary and also healing results on persistent respiratory disease.

3. Anti-tumor and also anti-oxidation impacts
Platycodon grandiflorum root oil ether extract has anti-oxidation result, as well as the results of colorimetric test of tetramethylazozolium salt (MTT) reveal that the essence has strong cytotoxicity to human colon cancer cell HT-29, ileocecal cancer cells cell HRT-18, as well as liver cancer cells cell HepG2 in vitro. Researches have actually revealed that platycodon saponin D has the task of dramatically inhibiting the spreading of human breast cancer cells (MCF-7) and human severe promyelocytic leukemia cells (HL-60 cells). Its certain device of activity and also the structure-activity relationship of platycodon saponin antitumor task require refresher course. The remove of platycodon grandiflora has anti-oxidation and removes oxygen cost-free radicals, so it can be utilized in the development of anti-oxidation and anti-aging cosmetics; at the same time, the platycodon grandiflorum is utilized in the manufacturing of fragrance and also pigment compounds by acid electrolysis, which can be made use of in aesthetic manufacturing, which fulfills the requirement of green food, so it has high application worth. Recent researches have actually additionally revealed that the saponins of Platycodon grandiflorum can impact the lipid content in lotion and also liver, and also have the impact of reducing weight and also lipid.

4. Lower cholesterol
Bellflower Remove can enhance bile acid secretion, minimize cholesterol content in rat liver, as well as increase steroid excretion.

5. Hemolysis
Bellflower Essence has a local irritability as well as a rather strong hemolytic result, with a hemolytic index of 887. As a result, it can only be taken orally, and can not be made use of as a shot. Dental management can trigger saponins to be hydrolyzed as well as damaged in the digestion system without hemolysis. Nonetheless, when taken orally in huge dosages, the stomach mucosa is boosted with saponins, which can cause nausea or vomiting as well as throwing up.

6. Anti-bacterial result
Platycodon grandiflorum water essence as well as preparation were diluted in test tubes at a proportion of 1:10 to hinder Epidermophyton flocculus in vitro. With the preparation 4.50% plate little groove approach, it has repressive result on Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Shigella flexneri, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and also Escherichia coli.

7. Sedative, analgesic as well as antipyretic impacts
Dental feeding of Bellflower Extract to animals has solid antipyretic and analgesic results. Inducing fever to computer mice with typhoid vaccination and gavage at 50-100 mg/kg can minimize the spontaneous task of computer mice, as well as has apparent antipyretic impact which can last for 3-4 hours.

Experiments of climbing up ladders, piercing holes, rotating rods and inclined planes in computer mice have actually confirmed that the unrefined product of Campanulaceae saponins has central repressive impacts such as sedation as well as analgesia.

8. Hinder gastric acid secretion as well as anti-ulcer impact
Bellflower Remove has the result of hindering the secretion of gastric juice and standing up to peptic ulcer. For rats with pylorus ligation, platycodon saponin was offered to the duodenum, which can lower the secretion of gastric juice and partially prevent the task of pepsin. Its inhibitory effect on experimental abscess resembles that of atropine. After the dosage is enhanced, it can entirely hinder the secretion of gastric juice and also the incident of ulcers. Continuous administration of platycodon saponins in rats additionally minimized the incident of acetic acid ulcers. The methanol cold saturate of bellflower likewise has anti-ulcer effect.

9. Anti-inflammatory and immune improving results
Bellflower Essence has anti-inflammatory result. Rats fed platycodon saponin have substantial anti-inflammatory impact on carrageenan foot swelling, cotton round granuloma as well as acetic acid swelling. It can additionally prevent adjuvant arthritis in rats as well as decrease capillary leaks in the structure in allergic mice.
