◆The effective ingredients of Epimedium with different part
Epimedium extract, the above-ground part of the raw material mainly contains flavonoids, and the underground part mainly contains flavonoids and alkaloids. We generally use aerial parts for extraction, and the main flavonoid in the extract is icariin.
◆Current status of the solubility of Epimedium
At present, some customers have asked for water-soluble epimedium extract. Icariin belongs to the flavonoids. Most of this kind of substances tastes bitter, and it is difficult to prepare the taste, so it is not suitable for water-soluble. The product. Epimedium extract contains ethanol in the extraction solvent used in the extraction process, which is soluble in ethanol, soluble in ethyl acetate, hardly soluble in water, and insoluble in ether, benzene, and chloroform. It can be dissolved in hot water, but as the temperature rises, the active ingredients will be destroyed, and the product will fail.
◆Our water-soluble epimedium extract
