Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance BuZangTongLuo Formula (BZTLF) was the decoction of eight traditional Chinese medicines including Astragalus membranaceus, Dioscorea opposita, Salvia miltiorrhiza, Scrophularia ningpoensis, Ophiopogon japonicus, Panax ginseng, Fritillariae cirrhosae and Whitmania pigra. This formula has been used as an effective remedy for treatment of diabetic ischemia clinically. Aim of the study In previous study, we have reported the therapeutic effect of BZTLF on diabe...

Abstract This study was designed to explore the effect of Chitosan oligosaccharides (COS) on mouse hindlimb ischemia by femoral artery ligation. Here, we demonstrated that COS treatment statistically promoted the blood perfusion and neovascularization in ischemic hindlimb of mice, accompanied by the suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. By 16S rDNA gene sequencing, the disbalanced gut microbiota was observed in ischemic mice, while COS treatment, at least in part, restored the abunda...

Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Ginsenoside Rb1 (GRb1), an active ingredient of traditional Chinese medicine Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer, has displayed various activities such as antioxidative stress, autophagic regulation and apoptotic inhibition. However, the role of GRb1 in natural aging process remains unclear. Aim of the study: In this study, we investigated the anti-aging effect and underlying molecular mechanisms of ginsenoside Rb1 in natural aging process. Materials and methods We ...

Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Seven traditional medicinal plants (including Astragalus membranaceus, Dioscorea hemsleyi, Salvia miltiorrhiza, Scrophularia ningpoensis, Ophiopogon japonicus, Panax ginseng and Fritillariae cirrhosae) and one insect leech (Whitmania pigra Whitman) were combined into BuZangTongLuo formula (BZTLF) under the guidance of traditional Chinese medicine. BZTLF is potentially effective against diabetic vascular complications. Aim of the study Previous studies fail...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the hepatic manifestation of dysregulated lipid and glucose metabolism, which is often associated with obesity, dyslipidemia and insulin resistance. In view of the high morbidity and health risks of NAFLD, the lack of effective cure has drawn great attention. In recent years, a line of evidence has suggested a close linkage between the intestine and liver diseases such as NAFLD. We summarized the composition and characteristics of intestinal microbes ...

Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Our previous research found that Sangguayin (SGY) deccoction made by four dietary and medicinal plant components (Leaf of Morus alba L., Root of Pueraria lobata (Willd.) Ohwi., Root of Dioscorea opposita Thunb. and Fruit of Momordica charantia L.) showed significant anti-diabetic effects on db/db mice and high fat diet induced obese mice. Nevertheless, it remained unclear what the role of gut microbiota in the hypoglycaemia effects of SGY. Aims of the stud...

Abstract Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is associated with chronic inflammation and gut bacterial dysbiosis. Studies show that 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) may improve NASH, yet the role of gut microbiota in protective effect of DNJ on NASH remains to be known. In present study, we aimed to examine how DNJ ameliorated high-fat diet (HFD)-induced mouse NASH through the regulation of gut microbiota dysbiosis. C57BL/6 J mice fed with HFD were treated with DNJ (0.1 mg/mL, in drinking water) for 4 ...
