Fulvic acids (FA) and 4′-methoxy-6-carbomethoxybiphenyl (MCB, 1), two major organic compounds isolated from Shilajit (a humus product), were screened for anti-ulcerogenic activity in albino rats. Both FA and MCB showed significant anti-ulerogenic effects in the battery of tests accepted for this purpose. The mechanism of anti-ulcerogenic action was...

Two new acylsterylglucosides, sitoindoside VII and sitoindoside VIII, were isolated from the roots of Withania somnifera Dun., and were screened for putative anti-stress activity because the plant is widely regarded as the ‘Indian Ginseng’ by practitioners of the traditional Indian system of medicine.

... Sitoindosides and acylsterylglucosides in Ashwagandha are anti-stress agents. Active principles of Ashwagandha, for instance the sitoindosides VII-X and Withaferin-A, have been shown to have significant anti-stress activity against acute models of experimental stress (Bhattacharya et al., 1987). Many of its constituents support immunomodulatory actions (Ghosal et al., 1989). ...
... The technology of HPLC has attributed to the immense pharmacological activities of phenolic acids such as ferulic acid with anti-inflammatory [28] and antifungal [29]; gallic acid having anti-inflammatory [22], antibacterial [28]; tannic acid with astringent and antioxidant property [30,31] and caffeic acid with anti-inflammatory properties [28]. Many biological and medicinal properties were attributed to fulvic acid, the main organic constituent of shilajit extract [32,33]. Fulvic acid is efficient in the cure of diseases such as stomach ulcers, gastritis, diabetes mellitus, diarrhea, colitis and dysentery [1,33] and induction of immunity role in lymphocytes and neutrophils [34,35]. ...
