It is one of a number of natural plant chemicals, called phytochemicals, which are found in a wide variety of plant species. The official name for this chemical is 4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamic acid, and its molecular formula is C10H10O4. The chemical is synthesized within plant cells by an enzyme called omethyl transferase, 2.Function of ferulic acid2.1 Antineoplastic Action In a study of the inhibitory effects of three phenolic compounds on benzo[a]pyrene- and 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced neoplasia in mice, ferulic acid and chlorogenic acid were active—although less so than ellagic acid—against lung carcinogenesis, but were ineffective against skin tumor formation. 2.2 Sun ProtectionThe vitamin E/ferulic acid compound alphatocopheryl ferulate (alphaTF) has the capacity to absorb UV radiation, thereby maintaining tocopherol in a stable state. Thus, researchers investigated whether alphaTF can act as a depigmenting agent and antioxidant to improve and prevent UVinduced facial hyperpigmentation.In a recent study of the freeradical scavenging abilities of ferulic acid and eugenol that may summarize current thinking on this potent phenolic compound, ferulic acid was deemed an effective antioxidant . The investigators concluded it may be useful in preventing cell damage by free radicals. 2.3AntioxidantAs an antioxidant, ferulic acid will pair with molecules called free radicals. Left untouched, free radicals in the body look for molecules to bond with, often bonding with molecules in cell walls and damaging the cell in the process. In a 1992 report published in "Free Radical Biology and Medicine" scientists classed ferulic acid as having "potent antioxidant potential." This is partly because it bonds easily with free radicals to create stable phenoxy radicals. 3.Dosage of ferulic acid A commonly recommended dose is 250 mg twice per day.4.Safety and Toxicity LD50 conducted using mouse model deduced to be 857mg/kg. 5.Application of ferulic acid It can be used in feed industry, functional food industry , cosmetic and medical industry6.Packing Storage and shelf life Packing: interior packing: plastic bag Exterior packing: carton Storage: Store under room temperature in dark place in sealed condition.
