Dihydrocaffeic Acid,which also named 3,4-dihydroxyphenylpropionic acid, is a white crystalline powder, soluble in methanol, ethanol, DMSO and other organic solvents, and comes from Eucommia ulmoides, Salvia miltiorrhiza, artichoke, Atractylodes macrocephala, Glechoma longituba, and has strong antioxidant activity.
There was a study which published in the Journal Nature Communications, in which scientists described an extensive analysis of new grape derivatives, dihydrocaffeic acid (DHCA) and sunflower pigment-3-O-glucoside (Mal-glucuc), which may be therapeutic drugs for depression. The results suggest that these natural compounds can attenuate depression by targeting newly discovered potential mechanisms.
Researchers have found that DHCA and Mal-gluc can promote the resilience of mouse depression models by regulating inflammation and synaptic plasticity. DHCA reduces interleukin-6 (IL-6), an inflammatory substance secreted by T cells and macrophages, which stimulates immune response by regulating the non-coding sequence of IL-6 gene by phenotype. Mal-gluc regulates histone acetylation of Rac1 gene and allows transcriptional activators to enter the brain to increase transcriptional DNA, which affects the expression of genes responsible for synaptic plasticity. Researchers used DHCA and Mal-gluc combination therapy to simultaneously inhibit peripheral inflammation, regulate synaptic plasticity in the brain, and synergistically optimize the performance of anti-chronic stress depression.
These new and natural Grape-derived polyphenols, targeting those cellulars and molecular pathways which are related to inflammation, maybe will become an effective solution to treat depression patients and anxiety disorder patients, and it will effect so many people.
After so many years of technological optimization and equipment adjustment, Nanjing Shunxiang Factory has been able to provide high-quality dihydrocaffeic acid with purity of more than 99%. And the equipment and facilities used in production meet the requirements of environmental protection and provide the best safe storage and transportation conditions.
