Anticalcifying properties of Dolichos biflorus (horse gram) seeds



Anticalcifying properties of Dolichos biflorus (horse gram) seeds



Indian Journal of Experimental Biology 32(12): 889-891



D. biflorus (Macrotyloma uniflorum) is used to treat kidney stones in India and is a constituent of the Ayurvedic medicine, Cystone. The in vitro effects of seed extracts on crystallization of calcium phosphate, a major constituent of kidney stones, were studied. There was a marked decrease in the anticalcifying activity with seed maturation and postharvest storage of seeds for 6 months.
