Ferulic acid introduction
Ferulic acid powder is extracted from the stem and root of Ferula assafoetida L.,whole plant of Cimicifuga foetida L. Ferulic acid is white powder,the melting point is 174 °C, ferulic soluble in hot water, ethanol and ethyl acetate, slightly soluble in ether, insoluble in benzene and petroleum ether.
Ferulic acid powder, like many phenols, is an antioxidant in the sense that it is reactive toward free radicals such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS and free radicals are implicated in DNA damage, cancer, accelerated cell aging.
Animal studies and in vitro studies suggest that ferulic acid may have direct antitumor activity against breast cancer and liver cancer. Ferulic acid may have pro-apoptotic effects in cancer cells, thereby leading to their destruction. Ferulic acid may be effective at preventing cancer induced by exposure to the carcinogenic compounds benzopyrene and 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide.

Use of Ferulic acid
Ferulic acid has a wider inhibitory effect on bacteria. It can inhibit pathogenic bacteria such as Shigella, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Escherichia coli, Citrobacter, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and food spoilage caused by 11 microorganisms.
Japan has approved the use of ferulic acid as a food antioxidant. In the United States and some European countries, some herbs, coffee, and vanilla beans containing higher amounts of ferulic acid are allowed to be used as antioxidants. Ferulic acid can be used to prepare natural vanillin, antioxidants, preservatives, crosslinkers and function enhancers.
Ferulic acid inhibits platelet aggregation, sputum and tuberculosis. Clinically, ferulic acid is mainly used for adjuvant treatment of vascular diseases such as arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, glomerular disease, pulmonary hypertension, diabetic angiopathy, vasculitis, leukopenia and thrombocytopenia.
