The cagaitera (Eugenia dysenterica D.C.) is a native fruit species from the Cerrado region of Brazil. Its main use is for food, but it has medical, pharmaceutical. The aims of this work were to elaborate a fruit wine from cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica DC) pulp and to compare the fermentations conducted with free and with. The mature fruits of cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica) are harvested by hand. After cleaning (immersion in sodium hypochlorite ppm) and selection, the fruits.

Aqueous extract was lyophilized and stored at C. Evaluation of antidiarrheal effects of E. Stunning photographs of each species, brief details sugenia the plant, its uses and how to grow it from seed. Small, yellow to slightly orange fruit with a thin skin and a very juicy, acidic pulp.

In Vivo Effects of Cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica, DC.) Leaf Extracts on Diarrhea Treatment

Analyses of ionic absorption and acute and subchronic toxicity after ricin oil-induced diarrhea were conducted according to the method described by Sagar et al. Flowering branch Photograph by: Cells contained a single nucleus, up to three nucleoli, and basophilic cytoplasm Figure 4. Experimental Design Animals were segregated in 6 groups I to VI each group and undergone chronic treatment for 90 days.

Year ISBN Description An extremely concise book, listing approximately 1, species and varieties of plants with their botanical name, common name in Brazil, regions in Brazil where the plant is eugehia, a brief list of uses and any medically active compounds in the plant. Based on the results reported eugeniaa several authors cited in this paper regarding the physical and chemical characteristics of the antioxidant action of the cagaita fruit, one can conclude that there is potential for therapeutic and medicinal applications.

Various plant extracts are described as having antidiarrheal activity, such as aqueous extracts of Guiera senegalensis roots [ 26 ] and Byrsocarpus coccineus [ 27 ], and also methanol extracts of Xylocarpus granatum bark [ 12 ], Asparagus pubescens root [ 10 ], Dalbergia lanceolaria bark [ 13 ], and others.


Ulceration and intense inflammatory infiltrate were observed in animals treated with aqueous extract and ricin oil Figures 5 d and 5 eresp.

The extract was thereafter concentrated in rotary evaporator and lyophilized. Analysis of antisecretory effect of infusion, ethanolic and aqueous extracts of E.

Fruit cut open to reveal flesh and seed Photograph by: Microbiological quality Microbiological studies of cagaita pulp revealed no growth of microorganisms. For example, the temperature, sun exposure and maturity, among other factors, may have had an effect on the results. Close-up of the flowers Photograph by: Small intestine sections rysenterica rats treated with water ainfusion of leaves of E.

SW voltammograms of CHE. Abnormalities of chloride, phosphorus, and magnesium homeostasis are common and can be associated with dehydration caused by diarrhea [ 40 ]. Tissue lesion of the liver was determined by the presence of congestion, hydropic and fatty degeneration, inflammatory infiltrate, and necrosis. Through such methods is possible to understand the redox features of a pool of compounds and provide important information about the thermodynamical feasibility of ROS reduction [ 1112 ].

Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity

eugwnia Some authors suggest that intestinal hemorrhage is associated with a significant localized inflammatory response in the mucosa and serosa, which they attributed to intestinal endotoxemia [ 4344 ].

The relative values were determined by counting the coincident points in the test grid and dividing them by the total number of points. September 7th Published: Eugenia brogniartiana Eugenia brogniartiana. Results imply therefore that CHE constituents do promote superoxide dismutase activity.

Since this enzyme is involved in the removal of oxidized proteins from mitochondria, the decline of its expression may enhance the damage promoted by ROS.


Herbal mater is regarded as the major antioxidant source in medicine due to the high reducing power of many plant secondary metabolites. Syzygium samarangense Wax Jambu.

Historically, like tannins, phenolic compounds were classified as anti-nutrients, which have demonstrated adverse dysenteroca on human metabolism. These variations could be due to climatic conditions, soil type and the addition of fertilizers, for example.

Syzygium suborbiculare Lady Apple.

Ugni myricoides Black Chilean Guava. Both tissue architecture and cells were altered by aluminium exposure, as cell cytoplasm increased in volume and presented more vacuoles than the untreated group. Four- m-thick sections were obtained using a microtome and stained with hematoxylin and eosin.

Physiological development of cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica).

Mice were gently placed on the platform upon stepping four paws onto the grid floor when they received a 0. Analysis carried out in 0. AlCl 3 exposure expressively reduced CA1 layer The latency of the step-down motion onto the grid was also recorded in the test session. None difficulty in the extract solubilization was observed. Results evidence that AlCl 3 does promote lipid peroxidation, which is in accordance to literature. Each entry has a brief description of the plant and its uses, accompanied by one to many excellent quality photographs of the fruits.

In view of a number of disease properties including epidemiology, etiological agents, and changeable clinical manifestations depending on the region, different strategies have been applied to control diarrhea [ 8 ].

Using fruit juice or pulp that has been clarified by the membrane processes of microfiltration is already a reality in the international market.
