Category: Healthcare

Abstract:Over the past decade, herbal and ayurvedic drugs have become a subject of world importance,
with both medicinal and economical implications. A regular and wide spread use of herbs
throughout the world has increased serious concerns over their quality, safety and efficacy.
Acacia catechu willd (AC). (Family: Fabaceae and subfamily: Mimosoideae) known as Black
cutch has a diverse pharmacological and phytochemical importance. It is a potent medicinal plant
in the traditional Indian medicinal systems. Thus, a proper scientific evidence or assessment has
become the criteria for acceptance of herbal health claims. This review article explores the
traditional knowledge or claims along with pharmacognostical, phytochemical, pharmacological
and future aspects of this plant. Over many centuries humans have been mining the bounties of
nature for discovering new phytoconstituent that have been used for the treatment of number of
diseases; many such treatments are useful even today as modern day medicine. Emerging
evidence also suggests that search is still continuing for harnessing active compounds from nature
in combating human illnesses and it also leads the path to search out new active natural and novel
semisynthetic or synthetic compounds.

Keywords: Acacia catechu willd, Herbs , Pharmacological activity, Phytochemical activity.

INTRODUCTION

During the past decade, the indigenous or traditional system has gained importance in the field of medicine. A large number of populations depend on the traditional practitioners, who are dependent on medicinal plants to meet their primary health care needs. Although, modern medicines are available, herbal medicine retained their image for historical and cultural reasons. Since the usage of these herbal medicines has increased, issues and moto regarding their quality, safety and efficacy in industrialized and developing countries are cropped up.1 In order to make sure the safe use of these medicines, a necessary first step is the reviewing the whole plant for its potential as a medicinal plant. Acacia catechu willd (AC) locally known as karungali in Tamil (English name: Black cutch) Family: Fabaceae, first described in Africa by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1773. Many non-Australian species tend to be thorny, whereas the majority of Australian acacias are not. They are pod-bearing, with sap and leave typically bearing large amounts of tannins and condensed tannins that historically in many species found use as pharmaceuticals and preservatives. AC, a deciduous thorn like tree mainly found in India and also found in deciduous forests around the world. The leaves, bark, heartwood has many nutritional and medicinal uses. The extract of Acacia catechu have been reported to have various pharmacological effects like immuno modulatory2 , anti pyretic, hypoglycaemic3 , anti diarrhoeal4, hepatoprotective activity4,5. Heartwood is used to yield concentrated aqueous extract i.e. cutch. Cutch (extract) is astringent, cooling, and digestive. It is useful in cold and cough6,7,8,9 ulcers, boils and eruptions of the skin, bleeding piles, uterine haemorrhages,atonic dyspepsia, chronic bronchitis etc. An antibacterial mouthwash made from the extract treats gingivitis and mouth sores.

 

is commercially used to obtain Katha (a concentrated filtered extract) in North India. It is found widely distributed in Jammu, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Andra Pradesh and Orissa. Catechuoides is found in terrain region of Sikkim, Assam and West Bengal, whereas Sundra, generally known as Lal Khair (red catechu) is found in Deccan, Gujrat, Rajasthan and southern Maharashtra .The tree can be propagated by planting its seeds, which are soaked in hot water first. After about six months in a nursery, the seedlings can be planted in the field.

 

Climate: In the natural habitat of khair, the absolute maximum shade temperature varies from 40oC to 50oC and the absolute minimum from 2.5oC to 7.5oC. The mean daily maximum temperature in May which is generally the hottest month in the hot weather varies from 37.5oC to 43.5oC. The mean daily minimum temperature in January which is the coldest month of the year varies from 1.0oC to 2.1oC.Acacia catechu is essentially a tree of comparatively dry regions though in its alluvial form, it extends into regions of heavy rainfall as in the Eastern subHimalayan tract, where it is found in places with rainfall as high as 3,800 mm. Away from riverain tracts it occurs in localities where the normal rainfall varies from 500 to 2160 mm. Khair develops to its maximum size in localities with heavy rainfall but it is decidedly xerophilous and grows in dry situations where few other species survive.

Botanical description: (11) AC is a moderate sized tree, not reaching more than 9-12 meters high and often smaller, with a short, somewhat crooked trunk.. The bark is dark grey and rough. The leaves numerous, alternate, stalked, often armed with a few prickles, bipinnately compound, leaflets 30-50 pairs. The rachis branching from the mid-rib has 4 to 5 round prickles. The rachis is nearly 10 to 20 cm long and bears 20 to 60 pinnae each about 3 to 4 cm long. The flowering occurs in May and June. Its inflorescence is pale yellow to cream colored .The foliage is softly textured; light green and oval-shaped. The branches are thin and spike like because tiny thorns grow around the exterior. The fruit, pod, 5-12 cm long, brown, acute, shining, with 3-10 seeds.AC typically reaches heights of up to 50 feet .The sap wood of AC is large and yellowish white and heart wood is small and red in colour

 

CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS

Main chemical constituents of Acacia catechu Willd are catechin, (-) epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate, epigallocatechin gallete rocatechin, phloroglucin, protocatechuic acid, quercetin, poriferasterol glucosides, poriferasterol, acyglucosides, lupenone, lupeol, procyanidin AC, kaempferol, dihydrokaemferol , L?arabinose, D?galactose, D?rhamnose andaldobiuronic acid 27, afzelchin gum and mineral (15 ,16-22) Another important constituent is taxifolin .Catechin is biologically highly active. It is used as a haemostatic. Taxifolin has antibacterial23, anti-fungal24, antiviral, antiinflammatory, and antioxidant activity25,26 . The medicinal properties of Acacia catechu is due to the antioxidant properties of these constituents.

Phytochemical Analysis Preliminary phytochemical screening of the leaves extracts of AC was performed as per standard procedure (28, 29) which revealed that the presence of carbohydrates, steroids, alkaloids, glycosides, tannins, saponins, flavones, and phenolic compounds.

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGY Acacia Catechu is an herb. The leaves, shoots, and wood are used to make medicine. The two types of catechu, black catechu and pale catechu, contain slightly different chemicals, but they are used for the same purposes and at the same dose. Catechu is used for diarrhea, swelling of the nose and throat, dysentery, swelling of the colon (colitis), bleeding, indigestion, osteoarthritis, and cancer. People apply catechu directly to the skin for skin diseases, hemorrhoids, and traumatic injuries; to stop bleeding; and for dressing wounds. Catechu is included in mouthwashes and gargles used for gum disease (gingivitis), pain and swelling inside the mouth (stomatitis), sore throat, and mouth ulcers, hoarseness of voice. Cyanidanol, an active principle of Acacia catechu, is claimed to be effective in treating liver diseases.[30]In foods and beverages, catechu is used as a flavoring agent. It is used in the diseases like worms, wounds, fever, edema, pruritis, diabetes, obesity, blood disorders, cough, asthma and anemia etc. The bark, wood extracts, fruits, Gum and flowering tops of AC are used for medicinal purpose. The plant is useful, internally as well as externally. It possess anti-helmentic anti dysenteric and antipyretic and hypotensive (31) properties. It is also used in melancholia, conjunctivitis, haemoptysis, chest pain, asthma, colicky pain, gravel, bronchitis etc.32, it was reported that both t he natural dyes 33 and bark 34 and whole plant 35has microbicidal activity.

PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES: Anti microbial Activity: 24,36 Study showed Acacia catechu Willd leaves Extract is found to possess broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity Results showed AC has antimicrobial activity by inhibiting common human pathogenic organisms like Staphylococcus aureus (Gram positive), Escherichiacoli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Salmonellatyphi (Gram negative) and fungi like Candida albicans, Aspergillus niger supporting its use in traditional medicine. Acacia catechu Willd leaves, Bark, root extract also possess Anti mycotic activity . The bark extract showed an inhibitory effect on the growth of fungi such as Piricularia oryzae and Colletotrichum falcatum.

AntiOxidant Activity:25,37 Study of 70% methanol extract of heartwood extract of Acacia catechu showed significant antioxidant activity , iron chelating and DNA protective activity which is partly due to the phenolic and flavonoid compounds present in it Standard methods like The dot?blot assay, TLC study and the DPPH assay showed that the AC extract is a highly effective antioxidant. Catechin, rutin and isorhamnetin are reported as free radical scavengers and these compounds largely contribute to the bio?potency of Acacia catechu.

Antidiarrheal activity: 4,38 Antidiarrhoeal activity was evaluated in albino rats after inducing diarrhea with castor oil.1 The antidiarrhoeal property of the ethyl acetate extract of Acacia catechu appears to be due to its tannin[38] content, which has astringent property.

 

Antipyretic activity: (39-41) The antipyretic effect of Acaciacatechu is due to presence of flavonoid compounds, as some flavonoids are predominant inhibitors of cyclooxygenase or lipooxygenase.[39], [40],[41]

 

Hypoglycaemic activity: (42-46) Acacia catechu possess hypoglycaemic activity. The hypoglycaemic effect of A. catechu may be due to presence of flavonoids which acts as insulin secretagogues.[42] Epicatechin, a flavonoid compound, is reported to promote regeneration of β cells of the Islets of Langerhans . [43],[44],[45],[46)

Hepatoprotective activity: 30,46,47 Acacia Catechu also possesses hepatoprotective property found in the heartwood. During trials, an ethyl acetate extract in male rats decreased CCI4-induced elevated enzyme levels in acute and chronic models of liver damage. The results indicated some form of repair of the structural integrity of the hepatocyte cell membrane or regeneration of damaged liver cells. Decreased levels of serum bilirubin after treatment with the extract in both acute and chronic liver damage indicated the efficacy of the extract in restoring normal functional status of the liver and the protective action of the extract was further substantiated by histopathological observations The hepatoprotective activity of A. catechu could be due to the presence of bioflavonoids which have hepatoprotective and antioxidant properties.[30],[46],[47]

Immuno modulatory activity: (48-53) Study on Wistar albino rats shows that the aqueous extract of Acacia catechu have significant effect on both the cell mediated and the humoral immunity The exact constituent(s)responsible for the immunomodulatory effect is not known. However, the catechins, by virtue of their antimicrobial (48, 49), antiinflammatory (50), antiviral (51, 52)and antioxidant (53) effect may be the main constituents responsible for their activity.

Anti inflammatory activity:(54-57) Study shows 57 extract containing both baicalin and (_)-catechin directly inhibits the production Of inflammatory fatty acids by acting on the COX and LOX enzymes. Since elevated AA metabolism is part of the etiology of arthritis, 54,55 inhibition of the production of these inflammatory mediators via dual inhibition of the COX and LOX pathways may provide a way to manage OA safely while providing acceptable efficacy. Toxicological safety studies in animals and humans have shown the combination of S. baicalensis and A. catechu extracts to be safe.56
