Not only a flavour – the pleiotropic bioactivity of vanillic acid
Summary.

Vanillic acid is a natural derivative of benzoic acid, commonly found in the plant world. Until recently antioxidant properties have been listed as its main bioactivity. Recently there have been numerous reports indicating a much broader range of the bioactivity of this compound, including its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anticancer and neuro- and nephroprotective properties. Both the results of in vitro and in vivo studies suggest that vanillic acid may be an important bioactive component present in the human diet. This study is based on an overview of available literature (featuring studies published in the last 10 years) concerning a wide range of the bioactivity of vanillic acid as well as prospects for using this compound for pharmacological purposes.

Key words: vanillic acid, benzoic acid, bioactivity
