The Function Of Carnosic Acid

  • Carnosic acid has been shown to have varying levels of inhibitory effects on Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, and Hansenula yeast. As such, it can be used as a food preservative.
  • Highly effective in terms of free radical scavenging and antioxidant effects. Its DPPH, ABTS free radical scavenging ability and iron reduction antioxidant ability are stronger than that of Vitamin E, slightly weaker than the synthetic antioxidant TBHQ, and its reducing ability is stronger than Vitamin E and TBHQ.
  • Carnosic acid’s fat-solubility allows it to effectively inhibit the formation of peroxides and the decomposition of polyene fatty acids in oils, thereby extending the shelf life of the oils.Furthermore, studies have found that carnosic acid can effectively scavenge oxygen free radicals in mouse liver cells and reduce the production of lipid peroxides. This in turn stabilizes the cell membrane.Carnosic acid can also inhibit the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein, which can effectively prevent the occurrence of atherosclerosis.
  • The ingestion of carnosic acid has been shown to have inhibitory effects on HL-60 cell proliferation, making it a potential new drug for the treatment of hematological malignancies, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.Additionally, carnosic acid and other rosemary extracts have proven therapeutic effects against heart disease and respiratory diseases.
