1. Analysis of flavonoids from Cyclanthera pedata fruits by liquid chromatography/electrospray mass spectrometry.
Carbone V, Montoro P, de Tommasi N, Pizza C.
Centro di Spettrometria di Massa Proteomica e Biomolecolare, Istituto di Scienze dellalimentazione-C.N.R., Via Roma 52a-c, 83100 Avellino, Italy.
J Pharm Biomed Anal. 2004 Feb 4;34(2):295-304.
A liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) based method was developed for the characterization of fruits of Cyclanthera pedata Scrabs (Caigua), a Peruvian food and medicinal plant. This method is based on the separation of flavonoid glycosides present in the methanolic extracts from C. pedata fruits using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) followed by detection with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI/MS). Chromatographic separation of the analytes of interest was achieved on a Symmetry C-18 column with detection in positive ion mode. Calibration graphs were obtained by determining the area ratio between external standard of each major compound and the internal standard naringine. Due to the sensitivity and the repeatability of the assay, this method is suitable for industrial quality control of raw materials and final products.

2. Studies on the constituents of Cyclanthera pedata fruitsisolation and structure elucidation of new triterpenoid saponins.

Dipartimento di Scienze Farmaceutiche, Facolta di Farmacia, Universita di Salerno, Ponte Don Melillo Invariante 11C, 84084 Fisciano (SA), Italy.
J Agric Food Chem. 1999 Nov;47(11):4512-9.
The isolation of nine triterpenoid saponins (1-9), among them six new natural compounds (1-6), from the MeOH extract of the fruits of Cyclanthera pedata is reported. All of the structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including the concerted application of one-dimensional (1)H-(1)H total correlation spectroscopy, (1)H-(1)H nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy), and (13)C-(13)C DEPT-NMR and two-dimensional NMR techniques (double-quantum filtered correlated spectroscopy, rotating-frame Overhauser enhancement spectroscopy, heteronuclear single quantum coherence, and heteronuclear multiple bond correlation). A comparative study of seeds and fruits has been also carried out.

3. Studies on the constituents of Cyclanthera pedata fruitsisolation and structure elucidation of new flavonoid glycosides and their antioxidant activity.
Montoro P, Carbone V, De Simone F, Pizza C, De Tommasi N.
Dipartimento di Scienze Farmaceutiche, Facolta di Farmacia, Universita di Salerno, Via Ponte Don Melillo, 84084 Fisciano (SA), Italy.
J Agric Food Chem. 2001 Nov;49(11):5156-60.
The isolation of six flavon glycosides (1-6), among them four new natural compounds (1-4), from the CHCl(3)/MeOH extract of the fruits of Cyclanthera pedata is reported. All of the structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including the concerted application of one-dimensional ((1)H, (1)H TOCSY, (13)C, and (13)C DEPT-NMR) and two-dimensional NMR techniques (DQF-COSY, HSQC, and HMBC). For all of the isolated compounds the antioxidant activity was determined by measuring the free radical scavenging activity, using the Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC) method, and the coupled oxidation of beta-carotene and linoleic acid.

Earlier studies demostrates that the Caigua as a sterols of vegetal origin (as for instance phytosterol) positively influence absorption of both cholesterols (endogenous and exogenous) reducing further risks dramatically of cholesterol Biosynthesis is of vital importance to the human organism, as it remains in many of our organs ( like the liver, skin, intestines and arterials) being therefore predecessor of many illnesses.
Hipercolosterolemia and/or hypertriglyceridemia are commonly related with the risk of coronary heart diseases, a risk that grows with age, but also during menopause in case of women.
The Peruvian Instituto de Altura of the Cayetano Herdia University found evidence that ingestion of Caigua has corrected the cholesterol dramatically.
Other advanced studies demostrate how the high content of flavonoids may helt to reduce cholesterol
Most flavonoids have anti-germ activity. Immuno-Shield is an immune system product formulated by Dr. Sahelian that has flavonoids and several immune herbs and nutrients..
Anti-tumor
Most flavonoids have anti-cancer properties.

The HERBS AMERICA COMPANY and MACA MAGIC were founded by Jerome River Black. He was the first to cultivate and distribute live maca root plants in the USA and began germplasm collections and cultivar selection of maca in the Peruvian Altiplano in 1994. In addition to his studies of maca in the Peruvian highlands, Jerome is a published ethnobotanist with a myriad of expertise and an extensive history of working within a variety of botanical experiences. He has explored remote rivers, lakes, and forests in dozens of exotic countries, his travels having taken him to the depths of steamy jungles and the tops of 20 thousand foot mountains...

He is the award winner of the Natural Foods Institute "Best New Plants" Award and the subject of numerous articles about plant exploration. He regularly lectures and teaches others about new and rare foodcrop development. Jerry currently resides with his family in the lovely rural area of Murphy, Oregon, surrounded by acres of land containing thousands of varrieties of rare plants from around the world.

Over the course of nearly 20 years, HERBS AMERICA'S founders have used USDA agriculture and agro forestry permits to develop more than 400 rare fruits and new superfoods for introduction into the farming sector and natural foods market. To accomplish this HERBS AMERICA works directly with botanists, tribal leaders, universities, and laboratories to cultivate and research traditional medicines which are found to be beneficial for both humans and the land. Our goal is to bring equitability to small farming operations in developing countries and support indigenous populations in their efforts of preserving culture and environment while at the same time supporting agrarian economies. Working in more than thirty countries around the world, the company donates and exports fruit trees and vegetable seeds to dozens of farmers in countries on several continents.

Our long term philosopy commits us to our product lines long after they leave the farms and jungles. We like to say: "Eat well! Think well! Live close to nature and work for the good of the community!" We believe that traditional wisdom and modern science can combine important resources for a long term vision of biological health. We are adamant in our support of indigenous land rights and sustainable agriculture. A portion of our company's annual budget is designated to help protect natural heritage through conservation projects.
