Citrus Aurantium Extract
Introduction of Hesperidin
Bitter Orange Extract Peel Powder
Hesperidin is a flavanoneglycoside found abundantly in citrus
fruits. Its aglycone form is called hesperetin. Its name is derived
from the word "hesperidium", the kind of fruit produced by citrus
trees. Hesperidin is believed to play a role in plant defense. It
acts as an antioxidant according to in vitro studies.Various
preliminary studies reveal novel pharmaceutical properties, none of
which has been confirmed as applicable to humans. Hesperidin
reduced cholesterol and blood pressure in rats. In a mouse study,
large doses of hesperidin decreased bone density loss.Another
animal study showed protective effects against sepsis. In vitro and
in laboratory research, hesperidin has anti-inflammatory effects.
Hesperidin is also a potential sedative, possibly acting
throughopioidor adenosine receptors.Hesperidin exhibited pronounced
anticancer activity against some selected human carcinoma cell
lines.Some in vitro results applied only to the aglycone form.
Hesperidin also showed potential to penetrate the blood–brain
barrier in an in vitro model.
