The polysaccharides and triterpenes
found in Reishi mushrooms act at multiple targets in the cascade of events leading to inflammation and excessive immune response.
Phyllanthaceae led to the identification of four triterpenes
, namely; glochidonol (1) glochidiol (2), glochidone (3) and lupeol (4) and two steroids, namely; daucosterol (5) and stigmasterol (6).
In the case of these products, triterpene
content ranged from undetectable to 7.
For practitioners, shea nut extract yielding 70% triterpenes
is available as BSP 201.
identified were [alfa]-amyrin, friedelin, lupeol, taraxerol and three unidentifed cholestans.
A quality extract containing 2-4 mg of triterpenes
daily is therefore recommended.
1989), because monoterpenes would have been synthesized by resin-reward ancestors as the biosynthetic precursors of triterpenes

guajava and that the triterpene
derivatives present in the leaf brought about the elastase inhibition.
Since rosamultic acid induced cell cycle arrest in sub-G1 (G0/G1) phase, therefore we also evaluated the effect of this triterpenes
on the expression levels of the cell cycle related proteins including CDK4, CDK6 and cyclin D1 in SGC-7901 gastric cancer cells.
3]0([alfa]); H-17([alfa])/H-21 and H-18([beta])/H-20 were observed; similarly NOESY correlation between H-3([alfa])/H-5([alfa]), Ha-19/H-29([beta]), Hb-19/H-8([beta]) and H-8/H-18([beta]) confirm a trans A/B, cis B/C and trans C/D ring junctions, typical in natural cycloartane triterpenes
with selective bioactivity from Sebastiania adenophora leaves, Euphorbiaceae.
