|anti-inflamatory in vitro
|Chemical composition and anti-inflammation activity of essential oils from Citrus unshiu flower.
Ingestion Method: essential oils from Citrus unshiu flower
The results indicate that the CEO is an effective inhibitor of LPS-induced NO and PGE2 production in RAW 264.7 cells. Additionally, CEO was shown to suppress the production of inflammatory cytokines including interleukin (IL)-1beta, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, and IL-6. Based on these results, CEO may be considered a potential anti-inflammatory candidate with human health benefits.
|anti-oxidant in vitro via experiment
|Comparison of chemical composition and antioxidant activities of two Winter savory subspecies (Satureja montana subsp. variegata and Satureja montana subsp. montana) cultivated in Northern Italy.
|The antioxidant activity was determined by using DPPH, ABTS and FRAP and essential oils displayed noteworthy radical scavenging effects against the ABTS radical
|sedative in mice via experiment
|Enhancement of Pentobarbital-induced Sleep by the Vaporized Essential Oil of Citrus keraji var. kabuchii and its Characteristic Component, y-Terpinene.
|Thus, vaporized Kabuchii essential oil and its active component, y-terpinene, have sedative effects comparable with diazepam without inducing motor incoordination, which is a well-known side effect of. diazepam.
