Aniba canelilla (Kunth) Mez (Lauraceae): A Review of Ethnobotany, Phytochemical, Antioxidant, Anti-Inflammatory, Cardiovascular, and Neurological Properties

Aniba canelilla (Kunth) Mez, known as the “Casca preciosa” (bark valuable), falsa canela (cinnamon flavored) Casca-do-maranhão (skin maranhão), and Folha-preciosa (leaves precious) is a species of aromatics from family Lauraceae, is widely distributed in the Amazon region.

In folk medicine, is indicated for the treatment of a large variety of ailments, including digestive, respiratory, inflam] matory, painful, and disorders of the central nervous system, it is provided mainly in the form of tea or decoction orally. The essential oil is referred to as natural antioxidants for food preservation and control of the disease, shows great potential for use in cosmetics, fragrances, and pharmaceutical products sector.

This review aims to critically and comprehensively discuss the characteristics of ethnobotany, phytochemical constitution, and scientifically tested biological properties A. canelilla, systematization of knowledge about species and propose new perspectives for research and development. The chemical composition A. canelilla including 1-nitro-2-phenylethane, metyleugenol, eugenol, safrole, anabasin, anbin, tannins, α-pinene, b-pinene, b-felandren, b-caryophyllene, b-sesquifelandren, p-cymene, linalool, α-copaene, and spatulenol.

Research by the ethanol extract, essential oils, and the main constituent (1-nitro-2-phenylethane and metyleugenol) have revealed the antioxidant, antinociceptive, anti-inflammatory, cardio-modulation, hypotension (vasorelaxant), hypnotic, anxiolytic, anticholinesterase, and antibiotic properties (trypanomicidal, leishmanicidal, and antifungal). Some of these effects are potentially useful for the treatment of diseases related to aging, such as cardio and cerebrovascular, chronic inflammation, neurological and degenerative diseases. However, it is necessary to advance in the clinical use of research and development of therapeutic products.

Ethnobotany Phytochemical and Pharmacological Activity Kigelia africana (Lam.) Benth. (Bignoniaceae)

Kigelia africana have been used in the management of human disease since time immemorial. Ethnobotanists have documented traditional use K. africana, which includes treatment of skin disorders, cancer and gynecological complaints, among others. It has interested scientists, who have researched K. africana plant parts for their bioactivity. This review provides a deep understanding of ethnobotany, phytochemistry and pharmacology of K. africana.

Web search engine Google and Google Scholar, as well as databases of PubMed, Scopus, JSTOR, HINARI, SID, Ajol and Springer Link, deep searched using key words and phrases. institutional reports and conference papers are also consulted. A total of 125 sources of relevant international literature met the inclusion criteria were included. Kigelia africana have biologically active phytochemicals, many of which have been isolated. While fruits are most often cited in pharmacological studies, other plant parts are also used in herbal preparations.

Commercially available products have been formulated from K. africana, although many have not been fully standardized. Despite numerous attempts by researchers to scientifically validate the use of traditional K. africana, many remain simply claims, so the need to do more research, more traditional use of scientific validation, new bioactive phytochemical isolates and standardization K. africana products.
