A 2016 quantitative analysis of Psoralea
corylifolia and seven of its standard constituents (psoralen, angelicin, neobavaisoflavone, psoralidin, isobavachalcone, bavachinin, and bakuchiol) using high-performance liquid chromatography revealed that bakuchiol is the strongest phytochemical ingredient in the plant, which the investigators found also confers neuroprotective and antineuroinflammatory benefits.
Results of the concentration of the nine phenolic compounds in the herbal extract samples detected by HPLC (Table 1) showed that Paeonia contained the highest level of total phenolic compounds (17353 [micro]g/g DW) due to the high level of gallic acid (16336 [micro]g/g DW), while Glycyrrhiza had the second highest concentration of total phenolic compounds (12318 [micro]g/g DW) mainly due to the high level of p-anisic acid (9703 [micro]g/g DW), followed by Mentha, Psoralea
, Atractylodes, and Bupleurum (6918, 5287, 3985, and 2595 [micro]g/g DW, resp.).
