    Bacterial Growth Stimulation and Antifungal Effects of the Essential-oilless-extracts of the Food Spice Dysphania ambrosioides
    Author(s): Luc´ıa Nitsch-Vela´squez*

    D. ambrosioides Leaves (DaL) are utilized as food spice. DaL infusion is utilized as antihelminthic in traditional medicine, the extracted Essential Oil (EO) is genotoxic and has been repurposed as biopesticide. As Da might be a good candidate for circular economy, more potential applications of the essential-oil-less-Da extracts were pursued by applying green chemistry based extraction methods. DaL extracts were prepared by the autoclave method for the sterile-essential-oil-less aqueous extract (SALAEL-Da), butanol fractionating for Saponins Extraction (SAP) and ethanol boiling method for the saponin-free extract (EtOHDa). Their effects over clinical isolates of fungi (Candida albicans/CA), gram-negative bacteria (Erwinia carotovora/ ErC) and-positive (Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus USA 300/MRSA-USA-300) were explored. The raw extracts stimulated the bacterial growth of .. View More»
