PLANTS IN COSMETOLOGY

CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES :- These plants get


their name from the New Latin word “Cruciferae,” which
means cross-bearing, due to the cross-like shape of their
flowers.
Native to Europe, the Mediterranean and the temperate
regions of Asia, these vegetables have amassed
widespread popularity and are now cultivated around the
world.
These vegetables are low in calories packed with
nutrients. Although the individual nutrition profiles can
vary, cruciferous vegetables tend to be high in vitamin
A, vitamin C and vitamin K as well as dietary fiber.
Cruciferous vegetables are also unique because they
possess sulfur-containing compounds called
glucosinolates, which have been shown to have cancer-
fighting properties. They have also been linked to a long
list of health benefits, including improved heart health,
increased weight loss and reduced inflammation.
There are a variety of vegetables that fit into this family,
and they’re all low in calories but loaded with vitamins,
minerals and antioxidants.

Benefits of Cruciferous Vegetables

1. Contain Cancer-Fighting Compounds


2. Reduce Inflammation
3. Regulate Blood Sugar
4. Promote Weight Loss
5. Enhance Heart Health
6. Promote Estrogen Balance
Cruciferous vegetables are packed with potent cancer-
fighting properties. Not only are they high in antioxidants
that can help neutralize cancer-causing free radicals, but
they also contain compounds like glucosinolates
and indole-3-carbinol, which have been shown to ward
off cancer (https://doi.org/10.1177/1534735403261831)
There have been multiple studies showing an
association between consumption of cruciferous
vegetables and cancer prevention. For example, one
review comprised 94 studies and reported that a higher
intake of cruciferous vegetables was linked to a lower
risk of lung, stomach, colon and rectal cancer.
(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8
877066/)
Without a doubt, cruciferous vegetables top the charts as
one of the best foods when it comes to relieving
inflammation. One study in 2014 published in the Journal
of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics showed that a
higher intake of cruciferous vegetables was associated
with up to a 25 percent reduction in markers of
inflammation among 1,005 women. ( 10.1016/j.jand.2013.12.019)
Some studies have found that increasing your
consumption of vegetables in general could decrease
your risk of heart disease and heart problems.

ANTIOXIDNT PROPERTY
COMMON INTRO :-
Natural antioxidants, particularly in fruits and vegetables have gained increasing interest among
consumers and the scientific community because epidemiological studies have indicated that frequent
consumption of natural antioxidants is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer
(Renaud et al., 1998; Temple, 2000). The defensive effects of natural antioxidants in fruits and
vegetables are related to three major groups: vitamins, phenolics, and carotenoids. Ascorbic acid and
phenolics are known as hydrophilic antioxidants, while carotenoids are known as lipophilic antioxidants
(Halliwell, 1996).( https://sci-hub.tw/https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jfca.2006.01.003)

SOXHLET :- A Soxhlet extractor is a piece


of laboratory apparatus[1] invented in 1879 by Franz von Soxhlet.[2] It was
originally designed for the extraction of a lipid from a solid material. Typically, a
Soxhlet extraction is used when the desired compound has a limited solubility in
a solvent, and the impurity is insoluble in that solvent. It allows for unmonitored
and unmanaged operation while efficiently recycling a small amount of solvent to
dissolve a larger amount of material. A Soxhlet Extractor has three main
sections: A percolator (boiler and reflux) which circulates the solvent, a thimble
(usually made of thick filter paper) which retains the solid to be laved, and a
siphon mechanism, which periodically empties the thimble
During each cycle, a portion of the non-volatile compound dissolves in the
solvent. After many cycles the desired compound is concentrated in the
distillation flask. The advantage of this system is that instead of many portions of
warm solvent being passed through the sample, just one batch of solvent is
recycled.
After extraction the solvent is removed, typically by means of a rotary evaporator,
yielding the extracted compound. The non-soluble portion of the extracted solid
remains in the thimble, and is usually discarded.
