What is OxyResveratrol ?
Oxyresveratrol (OXY) is a natural hydroxystilbene that shows similar bioactivity but better water solubility than resveratrol. OXY can be found in heartwood or fruits of Artocarpus heterophyllus, Artocarpus lakoocha, Artocarpus gomezianus, Artocarpus dadah, wood extracts or fruits of mulberry trees (Morus australis, Morus alba L.), fruits of Melaleuca leucadendron, rhizome of Smilacis chinae, as well as Egypt herb Schoenocaulon officinale.
Health Benefits of OxyResveratrol
OXY exhibited similar biological activities with Resveratrol including radical scavenging, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and neuroprotective properties.
The first bioactivity of OXY that has been found is that OXY is a potent tyrosinase inhibitor. Tyrosinase is a widely distributed enzyme in nature, catalyzing the rate-limiting step for biosynthetic pathway of melanin pigments. It exists in many organisms with slightly different forms. In animals, the deposition and distribution of melanin pigments determine the skin color.
Reports have documented the in-vitro and in-vivo anti-inflammatory effects of OXY isolated from Artocarpus heterophyllus, Artocarpus dadah, or mulberry wood. Mori Cortex is the dried root bark of Morus alba L., and has been widely used as an antitussive, antiphlogistic, antiinflammatory and diuretic herb in China, Japan and Korea. Chung et al.
OXY has been reported to exert neuroprotection in Aβ (25-35)-induced neurotoxicity in cortical culture neurons, 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)- induced neurotoxicity in SH-SY5Y cells, as well as in vitro and in vivo models of transient cerebral ischemia.
