Phenolic composition and biological potential, in vitro and in vivo, from native fruits of Brazil

Abstract

The use of natural products in foods, medicines and cosmetics has become a worldwide tendency and attracted interest of the scientific community and industry as well increasing the phytochemical research and technological application of plant extracts, especially those still underexploited. Considering the Brazilian biodiversity, their potential use and the necessity of a model of sustainable economic development, research involving products truly national take significant importance. This is very important because the native fruits are mostly restricted to communities where the spread occurs spontaneously. The regular consumption of fruits, and its phenolic compounds, has been associated to lower incidence of diseases triggered by oxidative stress such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and inflammatory processes. The growing apprehension with the use of synthetic antioxidants in foods also suggests the importance of studies about chemical composition and antioxidant activity from native fruits. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the phenolic composition and antioxidant activity in vitro and anti-inflammatory in vivo from native fruits of Brazil (pulp, peel, seed fruits and leaves), thus increasing the information available on bioactive composition, in the expectation that these results contributes to advances in knowledge, helping to preserve of native flora and generate income to small farmers.
