The main metabolite of Cinnamic Aldehyde is cinnamic acid. Cinnamic aldehyde has strong anti-oxidation and antibacterial ability. Whether cinnamic acid has anti-oxidation and antibacterial ability remains to be studied. Cinnamaldehyde has the function of inhibiting the proliferation of Gram-negative bacilli, and at the same time it can enhance the antioxidant capacity of the animal body and reduce or alleviate the inflammatory response.
The antibacterial and antioxidant activities of cinnamaldehyde are related to the aldehyde group. The aldehyde group of cinnamaldehyde is easily adsorbed by the hydrophilic group on the surface of the bacteria and enters the cell wall, destroying the polysaccharide structure of the cell wall of bacteria and fungi, thereby exerting an antibacterial effect.
The mechanism of action of High-Quality Hydrocinnamic Acid remains to be studied. In the study of isoproterenol-induced myocardial diseases, both cinnamic aldehyde and Hydrocinnamic Acid have the ability to improve the changes in serum antioxidant enzyme activity and inflammatory factors caused by ISO. The effect is similar.
Cinnamaldehyde can affect the animal body through anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial pathways. However, since cinnamaldehyde usually has a strong reducing property, it is unavoidable to be oxidized by substances with oxidizing ability during the process of feeding, digestion and absorption, thereby reducing its effectiveness. In order to better exert the antioxidant and antibacterial properties of cinnamaldehyde, its active ingredients must be protected through processing techniques such as coating, so as to ensure its leading role.
