1. Varieties of Dandelion
The dandelions included in the 2015 Chinese Pharmacopoeia are dried whole grasses (herbs with root) of the perennial herbaceous plants T.mongolicum Hand.-Mazz., T.sinicumKitag. of the Asteraceae family (Taraxacumspp.), or several plants of the same genus. There are more than 2000 species of dandelions in the world, 70 species and 1 variety in China, of which T.mongolicum Hand is the most widely distributed in China, except for the southeast and south, it is found almost all over the country. And Taraxacum officinale is mainly found in Xinjiang.
According to research, the chemical composition of dandelion includes dandelion sterols, dandelion bitterin, lignans, saponins, chlorogenic acid, choline, inulin, inositol, and so on. Dandelion is also rich in vitamins and trace elements, and its content is several to dozens of times higher than that of common vegetables (such as tomatoes, cabbage, and carrots). In recent years, with in-depth research on the development and utilization value of dandelion, it has been developed into health care products, drugs, and cosmetics. It is widely used in pharma, food, health food and so on.
In addition, Dandelion has the characteristics of non-toxic, mild, and high safety, which has been verified by the long-term application practice and pharmacological and clinical research in China.
2. Bioactivity of Dandelion
Antibacterial and antioxidant are the two main activities of dandelion.
The whole dandelion grass contains triterpenoid components and flavonoid glycosides, which has a broad-spectrum antibacterial effect, and has obvious inhibitory effects on common bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. A large number of studies have confirmed that dandelion is effective against Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria, and fungi and does not produce drug resistance.
2.2 Scavenging free radicals, antioxidant.
Flavonoids are one of the main active ingredients of dandelion, and have SOD-like effects.
As shown in a set of experiments in the figure, dandelion flavonoids have a strong scavenging ability for hydroxyl radicals, and the scavenging ability increases with the increase of flavonoid content. And with the dandelion flavonoids mass concentration reaching a certain amount, its scavenging capacity for hydroxyl radicals tended to be gentle without significant changes.
As shown in the figure, dandelion flavonoids have a strong ability to scavenge DPPH free radicals, and the scavenging ability increases with the increase of flavonoid content. And its scavenging ability for DPPH free radicals tended to level off without significant change as the mass concentration of dandelion flavonoids reached a certain amount.
2.3 Dandelion has a strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect
. Dandelion's SOD-like small molecules can stimulate the enhancement of the skin's endogenous SOD activity. At the same time, they can directly participate in the removal of free radicals, improving skin free radical metabolism, reducing the stimulation and inflammation of free radicals on skin tissue.
