Supplementary Material

GC-MS chromatogram of the physalis showed 29 peaks indicating the presence of 29 phytochemical constituents. On comparison of the mass spectra of the constituents with Wiley9 combined with NIST 11 libraries, the 29 phytoconstituents were characterized and identified as it shown in Table S1. The identified phytochemical constituent’s mass spectra are Oleic acid, eicosyl ester (5.04%), Colchifoleine (1.48 %), 3β,11β,21-Trihydroxy-20-oxo-5α-pregnan-18-oic acid 18,11-lactone (0.63%), 1-Hydroxy-2-(2,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetyl-beta-D-glucopyranosyl)-9H-xanthene-3,6,7-triyl triacetate (0.81%), kaempferol 3-O-rutinoside (1.40%), 25β-Cholan-24-oic acid, 3,12-dioxo- (2.58%), alpha-D-Glucopyranoside, methyl 2-(acetylamino)-2-deoxy-3-O-(trimethylsilyl)-, cyclic methylboronate (1.62%), ethyl iso-allocholate (1.99%), Quercetin 3,4',7-trimethyl ether (3.11%), Folic Acid (0.95%), 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D2 (1.27%), Docosane (0.93), 3-Hydroxy-4,4-dimethyl-7-oxoandrost-5-en-17-yl acetate (0.71%), (5β)Pregnane-3,20β-diol, 14α,18α-[4-methyl-3-oxo-(1-oxa-4-azabutane-1,4-diyl)], diacetate (1.45%), Pregna-4,6-diene-21-carboxylic acid, 17-hydroxy-3-oxo-, γ-lactone (0.75%), Hexadecatrienoic acid, methyl ester (0.64%), beta-k-strophanthin (2.48%), 2,2,4,9,11,11-Hexamethyl dodecane (0.66%), Cholest-5-en-3-one (0.63%), 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid (2-phenyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl)methyl ester (0.89%), 9-cis-Hexadecenoic acid (0.93%), 3,7,11-Trihydroxypregnan-20-one (0.99%), Ceanothine C (1.26%), Methyl-9,9,10,10-D4-octadecanoate (4.01%), Lucenin-2 (1.50%), Betulin (0.62%), (5á)Pregnane-3,20á-diol (0.97%), Anodendroside G, monoacetate (0.64%) and 7,8-Epoxylanostan-11-ol, 3-acetoxy- (0.61%).
