General description

Corosolic acid from Lagerstroemia speciosa is a pentacyclic triterpenoid found in a variety of plants, such as apples, basil, bilberries, cranberries, and prunes. It is a natural derivative of ursolic acid.

Application

Corosolic acid from Lagerstroemia speciosa has been used to study the inhibiting activity of ursolic acid and its derivative against colon cancer cells by causing degradation of β-catenins.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Corosolic acid from Lagerstroemia speciose shows a variety of biological activities such as anti-proliferation, apoptosis, and anti-carcinogenic. It exhibits an inhibiting effect on the post-challenge plasma glucose levels in humans. Corosolic acid, due to its ability to improve glucose metabolism, has been touted to be used in the management of Type-2 Diabetes. It improves hypertension, oxidative stress, and inflammation, thereby being a potential candidate to be used against atherosclerosis-related diseases.
Triterpene phytochemical found in medicinal herbal extracts. Possesses antiatherosclerotic, antihyperlipidemic, antioxidant, antiinflammatory, antifungal, antiviral and antineoplastic activities.
