Ursolic acid is a pentacyclic triterpene acid, used in cosmetics,that is also capable of inhibiting various types of cancer cells by inhibiting the STAT3 activation pathwayand human
fibrosarcoma cells by reducing the expressionof matrix metalloproteinase-9 by acting through the glucocorticoid receptor.
It may also decrease proliferation of cancer cells and induce apoptosis.
Ursolic acid is present in many plants, including apples, basil, bilberries, cranberries, elder flower,peppermint, rosemary, lavender, oregano, thyme, hawthorn, and prunes.
Apple peels contain large quantities of ursolic acid and related compounds.
Ursolic acid can serve as a starting material for synthesis of more potent bioactive derivatives,
such as antitumor agents.
It has been found to reduce muscle atrophy and to stimulate muscle growth in mice.
Ursolic acid has potential use as a cardioprotective compound.
Ursolic acid has been shown to increase the amount of muscle and brown fatand decrease obesity and associated conditions when added to diets fed to mice.
