Aloe Vera

Aloe latex or aloe juice is obtained from the yellow latex of pericyclic cells found beneath the epidermis in the leaves of Aloe vera and other Aloe species It is dried to yield a solid material called ‘‘aloe’’ that contains anthraquinones including barbaloin, which is metabolized to the laxative aloe-emodin, iso-barbaloin, chrysophanic acid, and aloin. Because of its extremely bitter taste and its laxative effect, aloe latex or aloe juice cannot be used readily or safely in food products. The physiological effects of aloe latex and/or aloin have been widely investigated. Some of the most recent works include studies on the effect of aloe-emodin on hepatic cells, the protective effect of aloe extract on hepatotoxicit, the gastroprotective properties of aloe extract, the bacterial conversion of barbaloin in vivo into aloe-emodin, a genuine purgative component, the absorption of radio-labeled aloe-emodin, and many others.

Chrysanthemum morifolium Flower

The flower of C. morifolium is a commonly used medical herb with mild action and a popular beverage with an aromatic odor in China. It is used for treating colds and eyes with redness and pain. It is potentially anticarcinogenic, since the flowers contain chlorogenic acid, flavonoids, and pentacyclic triterpenes. The flavonoids from C. morifolium have been found to exhibit anti-HIV activity. Several active anti-HIV compounds, including acacetin-7-O-h-D-galactopyranoside and chrysin, have been isolated from C. morifolium and found to be promising compounds for the inhibition of HIV growth.

Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides)

The fruit of H. rhamnoides L. is a traditional herbal medicine mainly used in Tibet and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regions to regulate the function of stomach and intestines, and treat syndromes such as indigestion, abdominal pains, etc. It has been well documented to have antioxidant, immunostimulative, regenerative, and anti-ulcerogenic properties, a protective effect against injuries in mice, and effects on hyperlipidemic serum cultured smooth-muscle cells in vitro. The alcoholic extracts of leaves and fruits of the plant at a concentration of 0.5 mg/mL were found to inhibit chromium-induced free radical production, apoptosis, and DNA fragmentation. In addition, these extracts were able to arrest the chromium-induced inhibition of lymphocyte proliferation. This suggests the alcoholic extracts have marked cytoprotective properties. An alcoholic extract of the berries of the plants protected against radiation-induced DNA strand breaks and inhibited radiation and tertiary butyl hydroperoxide–induced DNA strand breaks at concentrations off0.1 mg/mL. The protection against DNA damage could mainly be attributed to direct modulation of chromatin organization. These studies suggest that fruit of H. rhamnoides can be a potential protective agent against DNA damage in chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
