Health Benefits

1. Anti cancer
The indentfied of a a new triterpenoidal saponin (1: Julibroside J(21)) with a xylopyranosyl moiety located at its C-21 side chain of Albizia julibrissin hjave showed of inhibitory action against Bel-7402 cancer cell line at 10 microg/ml, according to “A cytotoxic saponin from Albizia julibrissin” by Zou K, Zhao YY, Zhang RY.(1).

 2. Anti antitumors
The indentfied of a a new triterpenoidal saponin, julibroside J(28) (1), was isolated from the stem bark of Albizia julibrissin Durazz (Leguminosae) of Albizia julibrissin displayed significant antitumor activity in vitro against PC-3M-1E8, Bel-7402, and HeLa cancer cell lines at 10 microM assayed by SRB method, according to ‘An antitumor compound julibroside J28 from Albizia julibrissin” by Liang H, Tong WY, Zhao YY, Cui JR, Tu GZ.(2).
