Biochem/physiol Actions

Arjunolic acid (AA) is a triterpenoid saponin that has known anti-oxidant activity. AA has also shown promise in against type 1 diabetes through its prevention of hyperglycemia induced activation of MAPKs, PKC, NF-kB signaling cascades. Arjunolic acid is beneficial in protecting again acetaminophen (APAP)-induced liver and hepatocyte injury.
