Health Benefits
1. Immunoregulation
In the study to investigate the immunomodulating activity of MF on the expression of nitric oxide (NO), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), co-stimulatory molecules and also interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) in macrophages and splenocytes, showed that MF could significantly induce the phosphorylation of signal molecules of MAPKs and the degradation of IkappaBalpha which finally led to the activation and nuclear translocation of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) for the target gene expression. All those notions disclosed that the aqueous extract MF is a new TLR4 activator, which induces a Th1 immune response as a consequence of induction of cytokines secretion, especially TNF-alpha and IFN-gamma(1).
2. Anti-diabetic effect
In the study to investigate the anti-diabetic effect of PM021 on an animal model of developing type 2 diabetes of Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rats, showed that PM021 also improved glucose tolerance in OLETO rats. However, PM021 had no effect on LETO rats, a control group of OLETF rats. Taken together, these findings indicate that PM021 has distinct anti-diabetic effects without any adverse effects or toxicities(2).
3. Antihyperglycemic effects
In the study of theAntihyperglycemic effects of N-containing sugars from Xanthocercis zambesiaca, Morus bombycis, Aglaonema treubii, and Castanospermum australe in streptozotocin-diabetic mice, fagomine (1), 4-O-beta-D-glucopyranosylfagomine (2), 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosylfagomine (3), 3-epifagomine (4), 2,5-dideoxy-2,5-imino-D-mannitol (5), castanospermine (6), alpha-homonojirimycin (7), and 1-deoxynojirimycin (8) were evaluated for antihyperglycemic effects in streptozotocin (STZ)-diabetic mice. The insulin-releasing effects of 1 were also investigated. The blood glucose level fell after i.p. injection of the extract (50 mg/kg). Compounds 1, 2, 5, and 6 reduced the blood glucose level after i.p. injection of 150 mumol/kg. Compound 1 increased plasma insulin level in STZ-diabetic mice and potentiated the 8.3-mM glucose-induced insulin release from the rat isolated-perfused pancreas. The 1-induced potentiation of insulin release may partly contribute to antihyperglycemic action(3).
