Impact of Different Extraction Solvents on Bioactive Compounds and Antioxidant Capacity from the Root of Salacia chinensis L.

Figure 2

Effect of solvents on recovery of total phenolics (TPC), flavonoids (TFC), proanthocyanidins (TPrC), and saponins (TSC) from the root of S. chinensis. The values are the mean of three replications for each solvent ± standard deviation. Columns not sharing the same superscript letter are significantly different (DI water: deionized water, GAE: gallic acid equivalent, CE: catechin equivalent, EE: escin equivalent, and DW: dry weight).
