Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure 1: Chemical fingerprint chromatograms of KXS formulae. (A): Fingerprint chromatograms of KXS formulae were made by HPLC-DAD at wavelength of 330 nm. The identification of 3, 6’-disinapoyl sucrose (1), α-asarone (8) and β-asarone (7) were shown in the chromatogram. (B): Fingerprint chromatograms of KXS were made by HPLC-MS/MS method at negative scan mode. The identification of ginsenoside Rg1 (2), Re (3), Rb1 (4), Rd (6) and pachymic acid (9) were shown in the chromatogram. The internal marker control was astragaloside IV (5). The experimental details were fully described in [13]. Representative chromatograms are shown, n = 3.
