Star anise is a famous flavoring and sweet. Star anise fruit can be directly used in daily seasoning, such as stewing, boiling, pickling, stewing, soaking, etc., and can also be directly processed into spiced seasoning powder. Anise oil and star anise oleoresin are commonly used in meat products, condiments, soft drinks, cold drinks, sweets, pastries, baked goods and other food processing industries. Star anise oleoresin, like other spices oleoresin, has increased in market consumption year by year and has gradually replaced spices
Shikimic acid is an organic compound, which is colorless or white needle like crystal. Shikimic acid can inhibit platelet aggregation, arteriovenous thrombosis and cerebral thrombosis by affecting the metabolism of arachidonic acid. Shikimic acid has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, and can also be used as an intermediate of antiviral and anticancer drugs. It is a dry and mature fruit naturally existing in Magnoliaceae plants such as star anise.
Star anise contains shikimic acid, an important component against Asian avian influenza virus. Experts say this is the only weapon in the world to deal with bird flu. Incense is produced in China and Vietnam. It is the fruit of a small Oriental tree species of Magnoliaceae. It tastes spicy and similar to liquorice. It is the traditional seasoning of Oriental cooking and the main spice of liqueur such as French Green fennel wine and fennel liqueur. It can also be used to increase the flavor of sweets, anise wine and tobacco.
Antibacterial and anti-tumor
Shikimic acid derivatives have antibacterial and antitumor effects. In 1987, Japanese scholars found that analogues of glyoxase I inhibitor synthesized from shikimic acid methyl ester had obvious inhibitory effect on HeLa cell line and Ehrlich ascites cancer, and could prolong the survival time of mice inoculated with leukemia cell L1210, with relatively low toxicity. The inhibitory effect was mainly related to the reaction of sulfur hydride. In 1988, a shikimic acid derivative was synthesized by Chinese scholars, which proved that this compound can inhibit leukemia cell L1210 in vitro.
The effects of shikimic acid and its derivatives on the cardiovascular system are manifested in the effects of anti thrombosis and inhibition of platelet aggregation. The results showed that shikimic acid had a strong inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation in rats with middle cerebral artery embolism induced by adenosine diphosphate; Intravenous injection and intramuscular injection of shikimic acid can prolong the hemagglutination time of mice
Anti cerebral ischemia
Shikimic acid and its derivatives have the effect of improving cerebral ischemia, mainly manifested in reducing the volume of cerebral infarction after focal cerebral ischemia in rats, reducing the neurological function score, reducing the degree of cerebral edema, and increasing the cerebral blood flow in the ischemic area. Some studies have proved that its derivatives can reduce the degree of red blood cell aggregation and inhibit platelet aggregation after cerebral ischemia, thereby benefiting cerebral microcirculation.
