Naringin Dihydrochalcone is an artificial sweetener derived from naringin. Naringin is a major flavanone glycoside obtained from tomatoes, grapefruits, and many other citrus fruits. Naringin exhibits biological properties such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiapoptotic activities. Naringin suppresses NF-κB signaling pathway.
Naringin dihydrochalcone is a citrus bioflavonoid found to inhibit cytochrome P450 monooxygenase activity in mouse liver. Naringin dihydrochalcone prevents toxin-induced cytoskeletal disruption and apoptotic liver cell death. In addition, it was found to have hypocholesterolemic effect by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase as well as ACAT activities.
