Elaeocarpus sylvestris (Lour.) Poir. is a tropical and subtropical evergreen broad-leaved tree and shrub, which is widely distributed in Southern China, South Korea, and Japan [1]. It is traditionally used for the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, palpitation, nerve pain, epilepsy, migraine, lack of concentration, asthma, hypertension, arthritis, liver diseases, diabetis, and malaria by local inhabitants [1, 2]. The genus Elaeocarpus comprises about 360 species worldwide and is well known for the chemical diversity of their constituents, including alkaloids, terpenoids, flavonoids, coumarins, tannins, ellagic acid, and steroids [1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8], which have been reported to possess several biological effects, such as antitumor, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, hepatoprotective, antidiabetic, antibacterial, antidiuretic, anti-babesial, and anti-angiogenic activities [3, 4, 5, 9, 10]. Until recently, no chemical studies had been undertaken on E. sylvestris...
