What’s Osthole?

Osthole powder



Osthole is a botanical anti-fungal agent which is classified as a naturally occurring coumarin. It was first isolated in the Cnidium plant and is found to be the key ingredient in the traditional Chinese herb Cnidium Monnieri. The compound Osthole has several biological actions as established in health studies. Aside from its immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties, recent research on the compound also shows that it may have actions as an anti-cancer and antioxidant agent.

The CAS number of the compound is 484-12-8 and its molecular formula is C15H16O3. Its molecular weight is 244.28 g/mol. Other names of the compound include osthol,7-methoxy-8{3-methylpent 2-Enylcoumarin, Cnidium Fruit Extract Powder, Cnidium Monnier Extract, Cnidium Fruit Extract, Cnidium Monnieri L., Cnidium Monnier powder, Rhizome Cnidii, She Chuang Zi in Chinese, and Jashoshi in Japanese.

Osthole has a whitish powder appearance and is generally soluble in methanol, DMSO, and ethanol. Research shows that the compound has poor bioavailability. However, the inclusion of other compounds in the product may enhance its bioavailability.

Osthole vs. Viagra

Viagra is a well-known product for the treatment of various sexual function disorders. Primarily, it is useful for erectile dysfunction. The health benefits associated with Viagra are comparatively similar to that of Osthole.

Both Viagra and Osthole work by stimulating the release of nitric oxide which leads to the relaxation of the blood vessels, causing penile tissue to engorge. However, while Osthole is associated with other health benefits such as cancer prevention and anti-inflammatory properties, Viagra is not necessarily associated with these benefits.

Osthole Manufacturing Process

The process of producing an Osthole includes the use of Fructus Cnidii as raw material. Steps in the said process include pulverizing the raw material, adding the same into a subcritical extraction kettle, combining the product with a nonpolar organic reagent, and extracting the product within a given temperature. The reagent is then recovered and dissolved in alkaline water. The solution is filtered, regulated to a neutral state, precipitated, and filtered again to obtain the precipitate. Lastly, the product is crystallized and dried to obtain the desired result.
