Ecdysteroid-containing plants, including Leuzea carthamoides (DC.), are of great interest as raw material for producing new adaptogens and tonic food additives. The ecdysterone content in its subterranean parts was 0.05% of the raw material weight [1]. Rhaponticum uniflorum DC., a herbaceous perennial of the family Asteraceae, is also promising as a source of ecdysteroids [2]. Preliminary chemical studies of extracts from the subterranean and aerial parts of R. uniflorum detected biologically active compounds such as ecdysteroids, flavonoids, polysaccharides, tanning agents, triterpenoid saponins, coumarins, and amino acids. Carotinoids were observed only in extracts from the aerial part [3]. Vorob′eva et al. established that the ecdysteroid contents in R. uniflorum varied from 0.023 to 0.85% as a function of the plant part and development stage [4]. Methods for increasing the yield of biologically active compounds from plant raw material are currently being sought. In this respect,...
