- ... Litchi pericarp procyanidins (LPP), which were mainly A-types, inhibit cardiovascular disease in vivo significantly. In order to know the pharmacokinetics of LPP, procyanidin (PC) metabolites were examined in various organs of rats at different time points after LPP ingestion. Plasma, liver, kidneys, spleen, brain, together with gastrointestinal (GI) tract of rats were collected over a 24-h period ...

- ... Proanthocyanidins extracted from lotus seedpod (LSPC) have been shown to ameliorate cognitive deficits and oxidative damage. However, there is no scientific evidence of combined LSPC and L-cysteine in the treatment for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in animal models. The first aim of this study was to study whether LSPC and L-cysteine combination was more potent than LSPC on improving memory impairment ...
