Perilla has been demonstrating various biological activities such as antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-allergic, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and neuroprotection effects.
It has been reported that extracts from perilla seeds and leaves exhibit concentration-dependent antioxidant activity.
These benefits maybe attributed to the high antioxidant capacity of Perilla, in particular to the content of phenolic acids, flavonoids, and carotenoids.
Perilla extracts are also known for its antibacterial activities demonstrating strong antibacterial activity against oral Streptococci and various strains of P. gingivalis.
Studies have been showing that Perilla water extracts may inhibit allergic reactions, could significantly inhibit DNFB-induced atopic inflammation by alleviating the expression of MMP-9 and IL-31, maybe effective against atopic dermatitis.
Several studies have revealed Perilla as an effective remedy against allergic asthma.
Some studies revealed that Perilla might inhibit seasonal allergic rhinoconjunctivitis in humans at least partly via inhibition of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNL) infiltration into the nostrils.
Supplementing with perilla oil might be effective on asthmatic allergy via decreasing serum lipids and ovalbumin-specific IgG1.
Perilla leaves yield about 0.2% of essential oil that includes hydrocarbons, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, and furan. The plant also contains pseudotannins and antioxidants typical of the mint family, simple phenylpropanoids used in pharmaceutical industry.
Rosmarinic, ferulic, caffeic, and tormentic acids and luteolin which are anti-inflammatory components. Apigenin, and catechin have also been isolated from perilla.
Several anti-inflammatory components of perilla leaf have been identified, including luteolin and tormentic acid.
Perilla contains phenolic acids, flavonoids, essential oils, triterpenes, carotenoids, phytosterols, fatty acids, tocopherols, and policosanols.
Other Perilla components, such as rosmarinic acid, perillaldehyde, luteolin, apigenin, tormentic acid, and isoegomaketone) define its pharmacological properties.
Improvement in the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinoconjuctivitis have been reported in several studies of perilla extract. Patient evaluation of symptoms showed significant improvement. Numbers of inflammatory cells in nasal lavage fluid were significantly lower at 3 days in patients receiving Perilla.
A randomized, placebo-controlled pilot study explored the effects of perilla extract 150 mg twice daily for 4 weeks in 50 healthy volunteers with GI discomfort and reduced bowel movements.
Significant improvements were observed in bloating, gas, GI rumbling, fullness and abdominal discomfort with administration of perilla.
Additionally, a higher rate of respondents was documented in the perilla group compared to placebo, especially for bloating with women responding more often than men.
