About Ferulic acid:

Ferulic acid, like many natural phenols, is an antioxidant in vitro in the sense that it is reactive toward free radicals such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS and free radicals are implicated in DNA damage, cancer, accelerated cell aging. Animal studies and in vitro studies suggest that ferulic acid may have direct antitumor activity against breast cancer and liver cancer. Ferulic acid may have pro-apoptotic effects in cancer cells, thereby leading to their destruction. Ferulic acid may be effective at preventing cancer induced by exposure to the carcinogenic compounds benzopyrene and 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide.Note that these are not randomized controlled trials done with human participants, and therefore, the results of these studies may not be directly applicable to human use.


If added to a topical preparation of ascorbic acid and vitamin E, ferulic acid may reduce oxidative stress and formation of thymine dimers in skin.There is also a small amount of research showing oral supplements of ferulic acid can inhibit melanin production in the process of skin whitening.


Staherb Ferulic acid Main Function:

1.Enhance human bodys motility of sperm and mobility;
2.Inhibiting platelet aggregation, increase 3H-5HT releasing from platelet;
3.Antioxidation, clear free radical, protective cell, accommodate body immune function;
4.Anti-bacteria, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti- mutation, anti- ultraviolet radiation;
5.Inhibit thrombosis, lower blood viscosity, in order to increase brain microcirculation, it can used for curing ischemia palsy.


Staherb Ferulic acid Application:

Ferulic acid is wide used into medicine, food, cosmetics field . It was used as the anti-inflammatory Drugs, pain, antithrombotic, ultraviolet radiation, anti-free radical and immune function of human body ,In the clinical ,it was used as the treatment of those diseases such as coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, vasculitis, leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. It also wide used in the food, cosmetic, mainly as an antioxidant .
