Chloroform extract possessed the highest scavenging activity with the value of They drew their potential from this heritage of knowledge usually transmetted in Thai Buddihst temples.

The cholophyll derivatives phaeophytins of CN chloroform extracts contained 13 2 -hydroxy- 13 2 – R -phaeophytin b, 13 2 -hydroxy- 13 2 – S -phaeophytin a, and 13 2 -hydroxy- 13 2 – R -phaeophytin and exhibited antiherpes simplex activity [ 14 ], potentially through herpes virus inactivation and inhibition preinfection [ 15 ]. In vitro and in vivo antioxidant activity of aqueous leaves extract of leonotis leonurus L. Clinacanthus nutans Lindau leaves CN have been used in traditional medicine but the therapeutic potential has not been explored for cancer prevention and treatment.


Emerging lay testimonies from cancer patients claimed that the herbs could eliminate the disease, suggesting their potential use for anticancer treatment.

Efficacy of Clinacanthus nutans extracts in patients nuttans herpes infection: Conflict of Interests All authors have no conflict of interests. In addition, Clinacanthus Nutans leaves extracts are adding another soothing effect as follows.

These cancer cells could develop antioxidant defense system with enhanced scavenging capacity and survive intrinsic ROS toxicity through upregulation of survival proteins. In front of disease, the purpose is to consider that the patient seeks to restore the balance by focusing on 3 ways: Rapid colorimetric assay for cellular growth and survival: Fourteen known compounds were identified in chloroform extract, which was analysed by gas chromatography—mass spectra analysis.

Uncontrolled RONS production overwhelming the endogenous antioxidant capacity will result in detrimental damage to cellular protein, lipid, and DNA, leading to genomic instability, and ultimately promotes cancer formation [ 5 — 7 ]. Nowadays, this influence is still being perpetuated in Cher-aim’s products range.
