    Basic Information

    The chemical name of Ferulic Acid is 4 hydroxy 3 methoxy cinnamic acid, which is one of the derivatives of cinnamic acid (also known as cinnamic acid, 3 phenyl 2 acrylic acid, molecular structure). Ferulic acid was originally found in plants Found in the seeds and leaves of the plant, it is a phenolic acid that is widely present in plants. It combines with polysaccharides and proteins in the cell wall to form the skeleton of the cell wall.

    It has a high content in Chinese medicinal materials such as Asafoetida, Angelica, Chuanxiong, Cimicifuga, Jujube seed, etc. It is one of the effective ingredients of these Chinese medicines and has been used as one of the quality indicators of Chinese patent medicines. Among the food raw materials, coffee, chaff, pandan beans, wheat bran, and rice bran also contain higher levels of ferulic acid. In recent years, researches on pharmacological effects have found many pharmacological effects and biological activities of ferulic acid and its derivatives, and the toxicity is low, so it has a wide range of uses in medicine, health care products, cosmetic raw materials and food additives.

    Flow chart

    After long-term exploration and verification of a large number of scientific experiments, Xi'an Green Spring Technology Co., Ltd. has explored and developed a new alkaline hydrolysis method to prepare natural ferulic acid. This method uses rice bran oil saponin as raw material and adopts a new process. In the production process, the application of chemical reagents such as acid and alkali is greatly reduced, and an advanced treatment process is developed on this basis, which not only reduces the discharge of waste residue and waste liquid, but also greatly improves the yield of ferulic acid. The rate and recovery rate have reached more than 90%, and the content is more than 98%.

    Brief Introduction

    Natural ferulic acid is prepared from the rice husk. The main ingredient of rice bran extract, Ferulic acid is an antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals that could cause oxidative damage of cell membranes and DNA. Rice bran extract, ferulic acid helps to prevent damage to our cells caused by ultraviolet light. Ferulic acid is often added as ingredient of anti-aging supplements.

    Medical field

    Anti-Inflammatory Agents, Non-Steroidal

    Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.

    Cholagogues and Choleretics

    Gastrointestinal agents that stimulate the flow of bile into the duodenum (cholagogues) or stimulate the production of bile by the liver (choleretic).


    Agents that prevent BLOOD CLOTTING

    Antihypertensive Agents

    Drugs used in the treatment of acute or chronic vascular HYPERTENSION regardless of pharmacological mechanism. Among the antihypertensive agents are DIURETICS; (especially DIURETICS, THIAZIDE); ADRENERGIC BETA-ANTAGONISTS; ADRENERGIC ALPHA-ANTAGONISTS; ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS; CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS; GANGLIONIC BLOCKERS.
