C. bursa-pastoris is an annual or biennial herb that is widely distributed in most areas of China. Moreover, C. bursa-pastoris has always been used as a medicinal plant for treating metrorrhagia, conjunctivitis, vomiting, and hydropsy . Previous phytochemical investigations of C. bursa-pastoris have displayed the presence of flavonoids , essential oils , amino acids , and alkaloids . Modern pharmacology has revealed that C. bursa-pastoris has many biological activities, such as hepatoprotective , anti-oxidant , anti-tumor , anti-microbial , anti-hypertensive , and anti-inflammatory .
To the best of our knowledge, there have been no reports on the neuroprotective activities of C. bursa-pastoris, which prompted us to investigate further its pharmacological potentials. As a result, 12 compounds (1–12) were isolated and identified as...
