DESCRIPTION

JAMBU OILY EXTRACT
The vegetable jambu has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties. It's main components are spilanthol, a fatty acid amide (N-isobutylamides), stigmasteryl-3-O-b-D-glucopyranoside and a number of triterpenes.

The active ingredient spilanthol is proposed to be responsible for most its biological activities. Spilanthol has strong pungent taste; it may produce local astringency and anesthetic effects.
