What is Trans-Polydatin?
Polydatin also called Piceid which is a stilbenoid glucoside and is a major resveratrol derivative in grape juices. It can be found in the bark of Picea sitchensis. It can also be isolated from Polygonum cuspidatum, the Japanese knotweed. Trans-piceid is the glucoside formed with trans-resveratrol, while cis-piceid is formed with cis-resveratrol.
Health Benefits of Trans-Polydatin
Nowadays, Trans-Polydatin is widely used in dietary supplements, functional beverage. The main functions of Trans-Polydatin are as follows:
Use polydatin to prevent cancer — According to a study that was published by the Journal of Translational Medicine in 2003, polydatin can be used in preventing cancer. The scientific mechanism behind this ability of polydatin is the presence of chrysophanol and emodin which have anti-mutagenic properties. This implies that these substances decrease the rate at which cancer cells mutate. Mutation is usually the beginning of cancer in humans. Therefore, these substances act like cancer preventers.
Lower high cholesterol
Use polydatin to lower high cholesterol — Polydatin has been used in Japan and China to lower high cholesterol in human body for many centuries. According to a research by the Department of Pharmacology in the Military University in Shangai, polydatin decreases the total cholesterol level in the serum. The scientific mechanism behind this activity of polydatin is its ability to develop a hepatoprotective and/or hypolipemic agent which lowers cholesterol level in the body. However, the study suggested the need for further research to determine the mechanism of the hypolipemic action.
Protect the liver
Take polydatin to protect the liver from tetrachloride-induced injury—Polydatin has the ability to protect and nourish the liver.
According to a study that was published by the Public Library of Science, polydatin has anti inflammatory and antioxidant stress effects. It can also act as an effective hepatoprotective agent, which can effectively be used in treating oxidative stress as well as inflammation-related diseases.
