Stem cells extract of Echinacea angustifolia

titrated in ECHINACOSIDE

 

Biological effects

It has been shown that Echinacoside has a wide variety of activities including that of neuroprotective and is also active in slowing the memory impairment. Echinacoside has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-aging properties and a strong immunomodulatory capacity.

Echinacea angustifolia

Echinacea angustifolia is a species of herbaceous, flowering and perennial plant belonging to the Asteraceae family.
Echinacea represents an important element in traditional medicine preparations, especially in North America where the root is widely used by the ethnopharmacological tradition for its intrinsic properties.
The most common species for the preparation of healing remedies are E. purpurea, E. pallida and E. angustifolia.
Echinacea angustifolia is also particularly known today for its antioxidant activity and as a natural scavenger.
The most important ingredient extracted from Echinacea angustifolia is the phenylpropanoid ECHINACOSIDE, which is almost absent in other species.
Echinacoside is a compound of secondary metabolism produced by the plant to defend itself against pathogens; is a natural glycoside of caffeic acid which consists of a trisaccharide formed by two molecules of glucose and one of rhamnose.
ABR has developed a platform for the production of Echinacoside using suspension cell cultures of Echinacea angustifolia.

Working process

Production takes a relatively short time. In 6 weeks we are able to produce the inoculants that allow us to start the reactor with the production of cells in one cubic meter. Cell growth in this step takes three weeks. Once the cell growth phase is over, we must wash, extract, concentrate and freeze-dry the extract. These steps take an additional 10 days. At the end we have a product in powder, packaged under vacuum-sealed bags and protected from light radiation.

Identification of a plant recognized for its content of rare and effective active molecules.

Identification of a plant recognized for its content of rare and effective active molecules.

Induction of cell proliferation and induction of calluses.

After the selection of the most efficient cell population, among the calluses, the production of the active molecules is amplified in sterile and highly controlled high volume bioreactors.

Extraction of water from biomass, purification and freeze-drying of the active ingredients.

Final extract, titled in actives.

Finished and vacuum-packed ingredient for a shelf life of over 3 years.
