BIOSYNTHESIS OF POLYPHENOLS IN SALVIA SPECIES
Keywords:salvia, caffeic acid, cytotoxic, cancer, anti-inflammatory
Chinese Salvia Species also called as “sages” are known as full of polyphenols that are rich source of natural antioxidants which are used to decrease levels of free radicals. Caffeic acid is an antioxidant present in Salvia as a secondary metabolite in plant metabolism. Many species of this plant are used in the treatment of degenerative disorders like cancer due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxygenation, anti-tumor and cytotoxic properties. Because of these specific properties of salvia species it is used in food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.
