Abstract

The antihypertensive activity of eleven hydrolyzable tannins contained in the leaves of Lumnitzera racemosa (Combretaceae) was investigated. From the screening in spontaneously hypertensive rats, corilagin, castalagin, and chebulinic acid were identified as the major active substances. This action of corilagin and chebulinic acid has not been mentioned before.
