Iridoid glycosides and tetraterpenoids are the main groups of phytochemicals in the fructus gardenia, These compounds exhibited biological activities such as anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, antioxidant activities; stimulate endothelial cell regeneration, or inhibit liver fibrosis, Vietnamese use gardenia fruit for the treatment of nephritis, urinary tract infections, infectious hepatitis,,, However, studies on chemical compositions and biological activity, Especially, the anti-inflammatory activity of gardenia fruit collected in Dak Lak has not been studied much, In this study, we evaluated the anti-inflammatory activity of the extracts through in vitro model by determining the inhibition of NO and TNF-α and isolated the purified compounds from the bioactive fraction, The results of the anti-inflammatory activity assay on Raw264,7 cells indicated that ethanol 50%, ethanol 70%, and water extracts inhibited NO and TNF-α production, Based on chromatographic techniques using silica gel and macroporous resin D101 as adsorbents, two iridoid compounds as geniposide (1) and genipin-1-O-β-D-gentiobioside (2) were isolated and determined, These two compounds showed a strong inhibitory effect on TNF-α secretion.
