The cagaitera (Eugenia dysenterica D.C.) is a native fruit species from the Cerrado region of Brazil. Its main use is for food, but it has medical, pharmaceutical. The aims of this work were to elaborate a fruit wine from cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica DC) pulp and to compare the fermentations conducted with free and with. The mature fruits of cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica) are harvested by hand. After cleaning (immersion in sodium hypochlorite ppm) and selection, the fruits.

It can also be reproduced in vitro from gems. Eugenia pitanga Savanna Pitanga. Concerning total superoxide dismutase activity in cortices and hippocampi, this enzyme is known to be hindered by aluminium salts, and results display the same trend, as group II presented statistically significant activity reduction.

Cells contained a single nucleus, up to three nucleoli, and basophilic cytoplasm Figure 4. Carotenoids Gomes et al. The plant is adapted to the poor soils of the Cerrado but benefits from fertilizers containing calcium and phosphorus as well as organic fertilizers.

They fall from the tree when fully ripe, roughly at the start of the rainy season. Silva, Santos-Junior and Ferreira investigated the cagaita fruit at different stages of maturation; however, the results for the moisture did not differ significantly, ranging from Determining the antioxidant activity of foods, in addition to recognizing its antioxidant potential before being consumed, is important to assess the defense against oxidation and degradation reactions that can lead to the degradation of its quality and nutritional value Lima, Psidium friedrichsthalianum Cas Guava.

The negative control was divided in to two groups including animals treated orally with 1 mL of ricin oil or 0. Syzygium aqueum Water Apple. These findings are worrying, since the Cerrado population frequently uses tea made from E. The values found by Ribeiro varied from 0. Furthermore, the possible toxic effects were evaluated in a rat model by histopathological analysis.


The ascorbic acid content of 26 kinds of exotic fruits from a variety of species and families were evaluated by Valente, Albuquerque, Sanches-Silva and Costa The vitamin C content in cagaita pulp as reported by Ribeiro was Tropical Plants Database, Dysenyerica Fern. Currently, screening of biological products and phytochemical extracts has been encouraged to obtain isolated plant biomolecules with antidiarrheal activity, including various plant families such as Liliaceae [ 11 ], Rubiaceae [ 12 ], Meliaceae [ 13 ], Fabaceae [ 14 ], Myrtaceae [ 15 ], and several others.

Eugenia dysenterica ex DC Mart.

Among them, 19 could not be identified eugenja Carvalho et al. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Herbal mater is regarded as the major antioxidant source in medicine due to the high reducing power of many plant secondary metabolites. Microbiological studies of cagaita pulp revealed no growth of microorganisms.

This was because the latter contained peels and the former was essentially pulp with a high water content. Membrane processes applied to cagaita pulp The consumption of fruit juice in Brazil and in the industrialized world has increased significantly in recent decades. Similarly, Ribeiro evaluated the proximal composition of the cagaita pulp that was extracted with and without peels. Moisture content was Brain cells are particularly sensitive to oxidative damage due to their high oxygen uptake; therefore, the regular consumption of antioxidants is important concerning neuroprotection [ 34 ].

After different drug administration periods no administration—T0, one dose—T1, repeated doses for 7 days—T2, and repeated doses for 14 days—T31 mL of blood was collected by heart puncture, without anticoagulant substances, in order to obtain serum samples, and further analyzed according to several biochemical variables such as chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, and alanine aminotransferase by using commercial kits Labtest Diagnostic S.

Since this enzyme is involved in the removal of oxidized proteins from mitochondria, the decline of its expression may enhance the ekgenia promoted by ROS. The cagaita tree can be used almost entirely, dysenterrica its economic value, and the great potential for sustained exploration Table 1. In cagaita pulp extracted with the peels, Roesler et al.


Introduction Diarrhea is responsible for deaths in adults and especially children all over the world, particularly in developing countries [ 12 ].

Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity

Myrciaria dysrnterica Blue Grape. Fernando Tatagiba Creative Commons Attribution 3. As all polyphenols, quercetin promotes ROS scavenging, which minimizes oxidative stress and oxygen-related injuries in brain mater [ 12 — 21 ]. Biochemical Assays Twenty-four hours after the last behavioral test, the animals were anesthetized with isoflurane. The protein levels were low; although, as expected, they were higher in the fruit with their peels 2. Tissue lesion in dusenterica intestine was classified by the occurrence of villi alterations and ulceration or inflammatory process.

Physiological development of cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica).

Syzygium cordatum Water Berry. Higher values of calcium 0. Usually diarrhea is caused by altered motility and fluid accumulation in the intestine lumen, which can be occasioned by an increased secretion of electrolytes secretory diarrheaan enhanced ingestion of osmotic substances osmotic diarrheaor the presence of a virulent microorganism infectious diarrhea [ 3624 ].

Native Range Native to drier scrub areas of Central Brazil.

The results for the flux of the juice permeate were acceptable and the permeate was clear and translucent. Thirty microscopic fields were chosen at random from each experimental group six fields per animal.
