What is Marigold Extract Lutein?

Marigold (Tagetes erecta) produces huge round blooms atop sturdy stems adorned by bright green, ferny foliage. One of the largest members of the marigold family, the African marigold attains a height of 2 to 3 feet at maturity. These drought-tolerant, sun-loving plants bloom in a variety of bright colors, including orange, yellow, rusty-red, mahogany, and gold. The impressive flowers measure as much as 5 inches in diameter.

Health Benefits of Marigold Extract Lutein

Anti- bacterial action

Antibacterial activity of the different parts of ethanolic marigold extract was evaluated using disc diffusion method against gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial strains. Streptomycin (Standard) was used for antibacterial activity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of extract from these plant parts against 5 bacterial by using Disc Diffusion Method. The result indicates that the leaf and flower of this plant part showed a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity.

Anti- microbial activity

The aim of the present study was to extract active constituents of marigold flowers and evaluate their antimicrobial potential. The dried powder of the flower petals was extracted individually by the cold percolation method using different organic solvents like hexane, toluene, ethyl acetate, acetone, methanol and water. Out of the 8 Gram positive and 8 Gram negative strains studied, B. cereus and K. pneumonia were inhibited by all the solvent extracts except aqueous extract. Amongst Gram positive bacteria, highest antibacterial activity was seen against B. cereus followed by S. aureus and L. monocytogenes; while amongst Gram negative strains, highest antibacterial activity was seen against K. pneumoniae followed by P. pseudoalcaligenes.

Blood coagulation property:

Blood clotting activity of leaf extract was examined using prothrombin time (PT) test by Owren method. Experiments showed that there was decrease in coagulation time with increase in extract concentration. Marigold leaves extract has shown very good blood coagulation property in lesser quantity i.e., in the range of μl. Antifungal, antibacterial and antioxidant activity are also analyzed. From the above findings, it can be concluded that along with antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant properties, marigold leave extracts are also having very good coagulation property.

Hepato- protective action:

Current study focus on hepato protective activity of the roots in ethanol extract by ethanol induced hepato-toxicity model. Physical parameters, liver functioning, antioxidant levels and histo- pathological study of the liver were studied to find out hepato protective action of marigold. Treatment with marigold root extracts has protected liver from induced hepatotoxicity.

Dosage of Marigold Extract Lutein

The appropriate dose of marigold extract depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for marigold.
