• Antimicrobial: Phytochemicals yielded alkaloids, glycoside, flavanoid, terpenes, tannin, resin and salicylic acid. Study showed all extracts with antimicrobial activity against pathogens, scoring highest with S typhi and lowest with S aureus. The study supports its traditional use for infections. (1)
• Anti-lactation: Jasmine flowers, applied to the breasts showed suppression of puerperal lactation comparable to Bromocriptine, with significant reduction of serum prolactin (greater than bromocriptine). Jasmine flowers offers an inexpensive alternative to suppression of puerperal lactation.
• Quorum Sensing Inhibitors : J sambac was one of several extracts in the study to show great potential as a source of microbial growth and quorum sensing inhibitors. (4)
• Anti-Cancer : Study evaluated a methanolic extract of J. sambac for anticancer effect against Dalton ascites lymphoma induced in Swiss albino mice in in vitro and in vivo model. Results showed significant anti-cancer properties, with dose-dependent inhibition of tumor cell proliferation with significant changes in the hematological profiles and cancer enzyme markers. (7)
• Antioxidant / Flowers: Study of methanolic extract of flower showed dose-dependent in vitro antioxidant scavenging activity. (8)
• Antioxidant: Study of J. sambac using a mammalian liver slice technique in in vivo simulated in vitro model, studied against H2O2 induced free radicals in goat liver, showed potent antioxidant effect. (11)
• Herbicide : Study showed a crude extract of leaves of J. sambac exhibited the highest inhibitory activity to the germination and seedling growth of Echinochloa crus-galli and Sesbania aculeate. (10)
• Toxicity / Vasodilatation Effect / Flowers : A 95% ethanolic extract of flowers was evaluated for vasodilatation effect on isolated rat aorta. The Jasmine flowers extract dose-dependently reduced tonus of isolated thoracic aortic rings, probably due to active components on the vessel muscarinic receptors or by causing the release of nitric oxide. A single dose IV injection of the flower extract showed no systemic biological toxicity. (12)
• Gastroprotective / Leaves: Study evaluated an ethanolic extract of leaves for gastroprotective effects against acidified ethanol-induced gastric ulcers in rats. Extract showed significant protection towards gastric mucosal injury, with reduction of ulcer area, and histologically showed marked reduction of edema and leukocytes infiltration of submucosal layer. There was a significant increase in pG, mucus of gastric content and high levels of PGE2, SOD, and reduced amount of MDA. (13)
• Anti-Inflammatory / Analgesic: Study showed a petroleum ether extract of leaves to have significant antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activities in experimental models of pain and inflammation. (14)
• Analgesic / Cytotoxic / Dried Leaves: Study investigated an ethanol extract of dried leaves for possible analgesic and cytotoxic activities in animal models. Results showed significant writhing inhibition in acetic-acid writhing in mice, comparable to diclofenac. The crude extract also produced prominent cytotoxic activity against brine shrimp Artemia salina. (15)
• Antistress / Leaves: Study investigated the antistress activity of Jasminum sambac leaves. Results showed antistress activity based on increase in swimming endurance time, biochemical parameters, and reduction in stress induced gastric ulceration and histopath studies. (17)
• Wound Healing / Leaves / Flowers: Study evaluated aqueous and ethanol extracts of Jasminum sambac leaves for wound healing activity in ointment dosage form in excision would model in albino mice. The aqueous extract showed significant increase in wound contraction, hydroxyproline content and decreased epithelization period in excision wound model as compared to the ethanol extract. Activity may be attributed to free radical scavenging action and antibacterial phytoconstituents, viz. tannins and flavonoids. (see constituents above) (19) Study evaluated the wound healing effect of J. sambac flower ethanol extract in male albino mice using an incision model. Topical treatment with flower extract showed a significant difference between mean wound size of treatment and control groups. (29)
• Free Radical Scavenging / Leaves: Study evaluated the antioxidant potential of a hydroalcoholic extract of leaves by various in vitro methods. Results showed moderate scavenging effect—DPPH>NO>hydrogen peroxide—when compared to ascorbic acid. Total antioxidant capacity was 155.40 µg/mL and reducing power was 44.28 µg/mL. Phytochemical screening yielded alkaloids, glycosides, tannins, and flavonoids in the hydroalcoholic extract. (20)
• Suppression of Puerperal Lactation / Flowers: In ayurvedic medicine, jasmine has been used to suppress lactation. One study reported jasmine leaves applied to the breast suppressed postpartum lactation as effectively as oral bromocriptine. (22) Study evaluated the efficacy of jasmine flowers applied to breasts to suppress puerperal lactation compared to Bromocriptine. While both caused a significant suppression of serum prolactin, the decrease was greater with bromocriptine. Results suggest jasmine flowers seem to be an effective and inexpensive method of suppressing puerperal lactation and can be used as an alternative where cost and nonavailability restrict the used of bromocriptine. (23)
• Analgesic / Roots: Study of methanolic extract of root of Jasminum sambac in Wistar albino rats and mice using tail flick and acetic acid induced writhing tests showed significant analgesic activity. (24)
• Antimicrobial Against Dental Pathogens / Leaves: Study evaluated JS leaf extracts against six bacteria (Streptococcus mutans, S. pyogenes, S. sobrinus, S sanguinis and Lactobacillus acidophilus) and one fungi (C. albicans) causing dental infections. The methanol extract was more efficient compared to other extracts. Results support the traditional use of J. sambac in the treatment of dental diseases.
• Chemopreventive / Dalton's Lymphoma Ascites-Induced Lymphatic Cancer: Study of Jasminum sambac in Swiss albino mice showed dose-dependent anticancer activity against Dalton's lymphoma ascites-induced lymphatic cancer comparable to standard drug 5-fluorouracil. (26)
• Antifungal / Flowers, Leaves and Essential Oil: Study evaluated the antifungal activity of methanol extract of flowers and leaves and essential oil of J. sambac against Malassezia sp. Results showed potential for antifungal activity with inhibition zones of 11.10 ± 1.92, 12.90 ± 1.68, and 13.06 ± 0.26 mm, respectively, with MIC values of 80 mg/mL to 160 mg/mL and 50%, respectively. Results suggest an alternative treatment for Malassezia-associated skin infections. (27)
• Antibacterial / Callus Extracts: Study evaluated callus extracts of J. sambac for in-vitro antimicrobial activity against selected disease causing pathogens, viz., S. albus, P. mirabilis, and S. typhi, etc. Results showed antibacterial activity against all tested pathogens, highest with Salmonella typhi and lowers with Staphylococcus aureus. (28)
• Decrease in Morphine Withdrawal Symptoms: Study evaluated the effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Jasminum sambac on morphine withdrawal symptoms in adult male Wistar rats. Results showed a significant reduction in the number of jumping and at all doses reducing rearing and genital grooming, along with decreased total withdrawal scores at all test doses. Results suggest J. sambac was effective in decreasing morphine withdrawal symptoms, which was attributed to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. (30)
• Antibacterial / E. coli / Essential Oil: Study evaluated the antibacterial activity and mechanism of action of J. sambac natural oil and its synthetic blends against E. coli MTCC-443 strain. Results showed bactericidal effect. Phenol coefficient of the oil, synthetic blends, and components ranged between 0.6-1.7. Activity was attributed to inhibition of cell membrane synthesis. (31)
• Antibacterial / Foodborne Pathogens / Flowers: Study evaluated the antibacterial effect of J. sambac flower extracts against foodborne pathogens. Methanol and chloroform extracts showed maximum antibacterial activity against L. monocytogenes, S. flexneri, S. aureus, E. coli, S. typhi, and B. cereus. (33)
• Volatile Emission During Flowering Stages / α-Farnesene / Tea Infusion: Fresh flowers are used to make Jasmine tea in China. Information is lacking on the relationship of volatile organic compound emissions in relation to flower developmental stage and what floral stage should be used for infusion. Among compounds identified, α-farnesene, linalool, and benzyl acetate were more abundant. Application of lovastatin, an HMGR inhibitor greatly reduced the emission of α-farnesene. Results suggest α-farnesene is the important compound emitted from jasmine flowers and the flowers at opening stage or flower buds 8 hours after excision is best for infusion of tea leaves. (34)
• Flavonoids / Rutin and Isoquercitrin / Dried Leaves: Study analyzed the two flavonoids viz. rutin and isoquercitrin from dried leaf powder of Jasminum sambac. Results showed 0.4962 mg/g and 0.6461 mg/g of rutin and isoquercitrin, respectively. (35)
• Nervous System Stimulant Effect / Aromatherapy / Essential Oil / Flowers: Study evaluated the nervous system stimulating effect of essential oil from J. sambac. Results revealed aromatherapy increased autonomic mediated activities including blood oxygen saturation, breathing rate and blood pressure, along with improved attention and subjective behavioral arousal with more energetic and less sedative effects. ( (HHongratanaworakit, 2010) (38)
• Cyclooxygenase Inhibition / Anti-Arthritic Activity: Study evaluated the anti-arthritic potential of J. sambac in adjuvant induced arthritis model of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in rats. In-silico docking and in-vitro assay demonstrated the effect on COX enzymes. Treatment with J. sambac reduced oxidative stress, MPO activity and damaged to bones in rats exposed to RA. The anti-arthritic activity of J. sambac could be attributed to anti-inflammatory activity induced by COX inhibition, along with potent free radical scavenging activity. (39)
• Amelioration of UVB/H2O2-Induced Dermal Aging / Fermented Flower Extracts: Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation is a crucial factor that leads to skin photoaging and increased DNA n damage, oxidative stress, and collagen degradation. Jasmine flower extract was fermented with Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which has been reported to exert protective effects on the skin. Study evaluated the antioxidant and collagen-promoting effects of UVB/H2O2-induced HS68 dermal fibroblast cell damage. Results showed treatment with fermented flower extracts could enhance the viability of HS68 cells. There was also remarkable attenuation of excess production of ROS, degradation of collagen, activation of MAPKs, including P38, ERK, and JNK, and premature senescence in dermal fibroblast cells. Results demonstrate the F-FEJS can effectively ameliorate UVB/H2P2-induced dermal cell aging and may be a potential ingredient in skin aging therapy. (40).
• Silver Nanoparticles / Bactericidal and Fungicidal / Leaves: Study reports on the plant mediated synthesis of silver nanoparticles using J. sambac leaves. The AgNPs exhibited antimicrobial effect against eight bacterial and four fungal pathogens. (see constituents above) (41)
• Effect of Pruning Intensity and Amino Acids on Growth and Flowering: Study investigated the effects of pruning intensity and foliar application of amino acids (tryptophan or glycine) on jasmine shrubs for promoting growth and reproductive growth and the content of essential oil. Results showed plants with light pruning (75 cm) and foliar application of amino acids especially glycine had the best growth and yield, which suggests interaction of pruning level and application of amino acids. (42)
• Jasmintides: Jasmintides jS1 and jS2 from J. sambac were identified as a novel family of cysteine-rich peptides (CRPs) with unusual disulfide connectivity. Transcriptomic analysis of leaves, flowers and roots revealed 14 unique jasmintide precursors. The study expands the existing library of jasmintides and informs on the molecular diversity and cysteine framework of CRPs as scaffolds and tools for engineering peptides targeting pests. (43)
• Herb-Based Film for Wound Dressing / Flowers: Study evaluated the effect of J. sambac flower extracts on fibroblast cell viability and film characteristics benefit in development of wound dressing film. Results showed gelatin-blended FC extract film gave better mechanical characteristics of the film. Non-cytotoxicity of the FC (combination filtration and compression) extract of flowers on fibroblast cells and appropriate physical and mechanical characteristics of the FC film suggest usefulness of the flower extracts in herb-based film for wound dressing.
