Active Ingredient : Bacosides 20%, Bacosides 40% & Saponin 20%
Saponins / Bacosides: 1. Bacosides A enhances the body’s antioxidant defenses by increasing superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidase (GPX) activities. 2. They maintain the structural and functional integrity of the mitochondrial membrane by inhibiting excessive lipid peroxidation & creatine kinase, improving the activities of ATPases and maintaining the ionic equilibrium. 3. They protect gastrointestinal health by raising mucosal defensive factors. 4. They appear to play a protective role in the synaptic functions of the nerves of the hippocampus and contribute to treat impaired memory. 5. They are effective in repair of damaged neurons by enhancing kinase activity, neuronal synthesis and restoration of synaptic activity, cholinergic activity and nerve impulse transmission. 6. They stabilize mast cells and possess anti-inflammatory activity via inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis and lysosomal membrane stabilization.
2. It is used to treat skin diseases, leprosy, leucoderma, eczema and psoriasis.
3. It is used in treatment of hoarseness, asthma, bronchitis and ulcer.
