It mainly consists of Orientin, Homoorientin, Vitexin and Isovitexin.They are polar and hydrophilic and are soluble in hot water, methanol, ethanol, acetone and other solvents. Their molecules all have phenolic hydroxyl groups and glycosidic chains, which have a strong ability to generate hydrogen bonds and are favorable for adsorption by weakly polar and polar resins, and can be purified using organic polymeric adsorbents such as macroporous resins .
Compared with oxyglucoside flavonoids, Bamboo Leaf Extract flavonoids have the following outstanding advantages:
(1) Structural stability and less susceptibility to degradation;
(2) The ability to penetrate deep into the focal area and directly exert therapeutic effects;
(3) Enhanced hydrophilicity, which is conducive to the development of drugs, food, cosmetics, etc.
