原始语种摘要: Madagascar is characterized by one of the highest rates of endemism and biodiversity in the world. Brachylaena preparations are extensively used in Malagasy folk medicine for treating gastrointestinal diseases and blenorrhagia. The aim of this study was a preliminary phytochemical fingerprint of Brachylaena ramiflora leaves infusions and bark decoctions, in order to characterize this species as source of biologically active compounds and their relative antioxidant activity by high-performance liquid chromatography-diode array detector. Sixteen and twenty-three biomarkers (molecules with health properties selected for their demonstrated positive role on human organism) were identified in B. ramiflora leaf infusions and bark decoctions, respectively: the main compounds identified in the...
