Geniposide is a natural glycoside founded in Gardenia jasminoides Ellis. Studies have shown that the human intestinal microflora enzymes that transform geniposide to genipin. Genipin has the hepatic-protective and choleretic effect. The metabolite of such glycosides usually very active and can hardly be obtained by chemical hydrolysis methods. In..
