Healthcare: the natural appeal of plant extracts


With the enhancement of the improvement of living standards and health awareness, people of medicine and food safety, the health of the Green function more and more attention, plant extracts, natural products, health has attracted more and more consumers welcome and praise, the market continues to expand the scale, to 2013 global plant extract sales have exceeded $54 billion, and still maintain a rapid growth rate. In the national industrial policy support, market demand continues to release, the industry gradually standardize the favorable factors, such as the joint promotion of plant extracts industry prospects are very promising.


1. Overview of plant extracts plant extracts to plant as raw materials, in accordance with the need to extract the use of the product, through physical and chemical extraction and separation process, and concentration in plant directed to obtain one or more effective components and does not change its effective component structure, finally formed products. In accordance with the composition of different plant extracts can be divided into glycosides, acid, polyphenol, polysaccharide, flavonoids, terpenoids, alkaloids and other categories; according to different product characteristics, can be divided into vegetable oil, extract, powder, and other types of lens.


A variety of plant extracts, has now entered the industrial extraction has reached more than 300, it is a kind of important intermediate products, wide application field, which can be used for pharmaceutical raw materials, but also can be used for health care products, nutritional supplements, food additives, cosmetics and other industries.
