Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Coumarin itself was first isolated from the tonka bean Coumarouna odorata. Coumarin and its derivatives are alpha-benzopyrones. Coumarin is metabolized in humans to 7-hydroxycoumarin. Coumarin is a secondary phytochemical with hepatotoxic and carcinogenic properties. For the carcinogenic effect, a genotoxic mechanism was considered possible. Coumarins have a significant effect on physiological, bacteriostatic and anti-tumor activity. Coumarins have potent edema protective function and thus involved in the treatment of lymphedema, elephantiasis and other high protein edema conditions. Coumarin has appetite-suppressing properties.   NCATS
