Title: Plant Extract


1
Plant Extract
Alfa Chemistry
2
Plant Extract
A plant extract is a substance or active
substance of a desired property extracted from
plant tissue by treatment for a specific purpose
through the process of physical and chemical
extraction and separation without changing the
structure of the active ingredients.

Glycosides
Saponins can reduce the surface tension of
liquids and produce foam, and thus can be used as
an emulsifier.
Biological function
There are also glycosides that can lower
cholesterol, fight inflammation, inhibit
bacteria, regulate immunity, excite or inhibit
the central nervous system.
Emulsifier
Pharmic function
Some steroidal saponins also have anti-tumor,
anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and
cholesterol-lowering effects.

Polyphenols
Preventing the adverse effects
Antioxidant
The antioxidant function of polyphenols can
prevent these chronic diseases.
Polyphenols have been found to be effective in
preventing the adverse effects of derivatives of
high-fat foods on human body.

Polysaccharides
1. Immunoregulation
2. Antiviral
4. Hypoglycemic
3. Anticancer
5. Cosmetic
A polysaccharide is a polysaccharide polymer
carbohydrate consisting of a glycoside-bonded
sugar chain and at least 10 monosaccharides.
6. Emulsification

Terpenoids
Plastoquinone
Terpenoids are a general term for all isoprene
polymers and their derivatives. Terpenes are
compounds that are ubiquitous in the plant
kingdom.
7
Flavonoids
Flavonoids are a series of compounds consisting
of two benzene rings, wherein the phenolic
hydroxyl groups are linked by three central
carbon atoms. Flavonoids are powerful
antioxidants that scavenge oxygen free radicals
in the body.
Anthocyanins inhibit all-stage spillage of
lipid-derived peroxides.
Flavonoids can improve blood circulation and
lower cholesterol.
Flavonoids in fruits can greatly reduce the
incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular
diseases.

Cosmetics industry
Plant extracts are attracting increasing
interests in the cosmetics industry. There are
now growing scientific evidences that plant
extracts have a broad and complex arsenal of
active ingredients that not only calm or smooth
skin, but also repair and protect human skin. In
addition, plant extracts may contain compounds
having antimicrobial or other beneficial
properties that affect the formulation of
cosmetics. Plant extracts can provide formulators
with more choices at the technical level in
cosmetics industry and meet the diverse needs of
consumers.
12
Health food industry
Plant extracts can be used in health foods.
Health foods are a specific type of food that has
specific functions for the human body, but they
are not intended to treat diseases and are
suitable for consumption by a specific
population.
