Application

Castor oil is a triglyceride obtained from Ricinus communis. It has been used to study its impact on rat lens condition. Castor oil has also been used as a test reagent for studying the dose-response relationship and mechanism of action of Saccharomyces boulardii by utilizing the rat model of castor oil-induced diarrhea.
