Function Of Naringenin

Antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral

Naringenin has antibacterial properties effective against Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Flavococcus and Escherichia coli.


Studies have shown that naringenin has significant antioxidant properties. It has been shown to reduce oxidative damage to DNA in in vitro and animal studies.

Protect your cardiovascular system

Naringenin can inhibit the production of cholesterol-carrying apolipoprotein B (ApoB) in the blood, accelerate the digestion of cholesterol by cells, reduce the content of cholesterol in the blood, and prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.

Application Of Naringin

Application in medicine

Naringin has exhibited a variety of biological activities and pharmacological effects. It can lower cholesterol levels chiefly by inhibiting the activity of cholesterol synthase, which reduces the synthesis of cholesterol in the body.

Naringin also promotes the decomposition of cholesterol and decreases LDL levels in the body. Furthermore, it is also widely used in blood, bone cell, and muscle cell research.

Application in food science

It is a popular choice in food science for its natural antioxidant properties. Selecting naringin as the natural antioxidant for pork, the study found that it had a significant effect on improving the brightness and yellowness of meat, with a decrease in redness at first, followed by an increase.

Naringin is typically hydrophilic, which affects its effectiveness as a natural antioxidant. Naringin was modified by esterification, catalyzed by lipase, which introduced a lipid chain into the molecule and greatly reduced its hydrophilicity.

Application in chemistry

Naringin is also often used as a key raw material for chemical synthesis. Since the early 1990s, molecularly imprinted membranes have attracted increasing attention due to their dual advantages of molecular specific recognition and membrane separation.

Using naringin as template molecule and chitosan as membrane material, the aqueous phase recognition of naringin molecularly imprinted chitosan membrane was prepared by cross-linking with aqueous sulfuric acid.
