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.

Physiological development of cagaita (Eugenia dysenterica).

Callistemon pallidus Lemon Bottlebrush. Syzygium samarangense Wax Jambu. However, in the animals treated with infusion, it is important to note the presence of intense inflammatory infiltrate, partial loss of intestinal villi, and a complete mucosal alteration Figure 5 b. Treatment I was designed as a control group vehicle-distilled water ; therefore, only water was administered, while treatments II to VI were test groups.

However, several in vitro methods have been and are being tested to evaluate the total antioxidant activity of substances and foods, especially in complex matrices such as wine, fruits and other vegetables.

By microencapsulating the freeze-dried pulp, it can become a beneficial food additive because cagaita pulp is widely consumed in the Brazilian Cerrado. This pattern implies that sample compounds may repeatedly undergo oxidation to restore endogenous antioxidants in physiological environment.

Furthermore, the liver showed congestion and hydropic degeneration. The measurements were performed in a 1. Forty rats dyeenterica separated in five groups of eight animals. Henceforth, CHE presents outstanding antioxidant quality, as the anodic peak occurred at 0.


Control mouse brain section I showed normal histological structure of the neurons in the hippocampus. Experimental Design Animals were segregated in 6 groups I to VI each group and undergone chronic treatment for 90 days.

None difficulty in the extract solubilization was observed.

The low glucose, fructose and sucrose values in the cagaita indicate that this fruit is less sweet and contains less sugar than the guava, for example. Ugni myricoides Black Chilean Guava. Based on the results reported by several authors cited in this paper regarding the physical and chemical characteristics of the antioxidant action of the cagaita fruit, one can conclude that there is potential for therapeutic and medicinal applications. Eugenia dysenterica is a tree from the Myrtaceae family order Myrtalesnative of the Cerradothe central savannah region of Brazil.

Many different factors could have contributed to the low soluble sugar content in the cagaita pulp. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The solvent of ethanolic extract was evaporated under vacuum in a rotary-evaporator at C and further stored at C. Microbiological analysis of whole, retentate and clarified cagaita pulp.

AlCl 3 exposure expressively reduced CA1 layer A mean flux after dgsenterica hours process was 20 L. Passive avoidance behavior based on negative reinforcement was used to examine the short- and long-term memory [ 13 ].

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.

The most common cause of abnormal liver enzymes in the sick patient is secondary liver changes that arise from a primary nonhepatic disease [ 48 ]. Fernando Tatagiba Creative Commons Attribution 3.

Twenty-four hours after the last behavioral test, the animals were anesthetized with isoflurane.
