Baicalin is a kind of flavonoid extracted from the root of Scutellaria baicalensis. It has remarkable biological activity, has antibacterial, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-metamorphic and antispasmodic effects, and has strong anticancer reaction. And other physiological effects. Has occupied an important position in clinical medicine. Baicalin can also absorb ultraviolet rays, scavenge oxygen free radicals, and inhibit the formation of melanin. Therefore, it can be used in medicine or cosmetics. It is a good functional cosmetic raw material.

Baicalin and baicalein can produce antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects by interfering with the metabolic pathway of arachidonic acid and inhibiting the activity of cytokines.
Astragalus membranaceus has a strong inhibitory effect on microorganisms, and its decoction has a broad-spectrum antibacterial effect, and is also resistant to various microorganisms such as fungi, viruses, mycoplasma, and chlamydia. Astragalus and its active ingredients inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and chlamydia, which may be related to inhibition of ATP synthase, formation of microbial envelope and inhibition of expression of certain proteins.
Baicalin showed a certain inhibitory effect on Helicobacter pylori, Staphylococcus aureus, yeast fungus and Chlamydia pneumoniae.
Free radicals have strong oxidative properties, which can damage the cells and tissues of the body, leading to chronic diseases and aging. The molecular structure of flavonoids in Astragalus membranaceus contains phenolic hydroxyl groups, so it has a certain role in scavenging free radicals and antioxidation.
The components of baicalin, baicalein, baicalin and wogonin are the material basis for the anti-tumor effect of astragalus, but the mechanisms are different. Baicalin can inhibit the proliferation of rat islet cell tumor cells by inducing apoptosis of tumor cells.
