Chemical profile and biological activities of Sonneratia apetala (Buch.-Ham.)
- 25 Downloads
This review aims at summarizing the chemical profile and biological activities of the mangrove plant Sonneratia apetala on the basis of published evidence in various databases. For this, an up-to-date (till Aug 2019) a search has been made in the PubMed, Science Direct and Google Scholar with relevant keywords. The search yielded 21 published papers regarding to the phytochemical and pharmacological properties of S. apetala and its derived compounds. Accumulated results suggest that different parts of the S. apetala contain various minerals, vitamins (e.g., ascorbic acid, thiamin, riboflavin), and important secondary metabolites. To date, a number of biologically active principles have been isolated from this plant, including lupeol, caffeic acid (+)-catechin (−)-epicatechin, ellagic acid, gallic acid, and quercetin. The plant possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anthelmintic, cytotoxic/anticancer, anti-diarrheal, analgesic, anti-diabetic, and anti-hyperlipidemic activities. Of note, S. apetala may be a potential source of nutrients, minerals and vitamins, and biologically-active lead compounds.
