1.What is ferulic acid?
Ferulic acid is widely present in plants in nature. Its chemical name is 4-hydroxy-methoxycinnamic acid, which is a phenolic acid commonly found in plants. Ferulic acid is mostly extracted from Angelica sinensis, and ferulic acid is contained in various traditional Chinese medicines, such as Chuanxiong, Equisetum, Cimicifuga, and is one of the derivatives of cinnamic acid. Of course, ferulic acid is rarely present in plants in a free state. It mainly exists in plants with oligosaccharides, polyamines, lipids and polysaccharides. That is, sodium ferulate and ferulate, these two derivatives, basically reflect and maintain the biological characteristics of ferulic acid.

Ferulic acid is found in natural plant angelica, and angelica is used as an edible Chinese medicine. Therefore, the security is relatively high. Modern research shows that ferulic acid can be absorbed by the human body and can be excreted from the urine in time without accumulation in the human body and causing accumulation toxicity. In particular, ferulic acid is easy to be metabolized by the human body, has extremely low toxicity, and is relatively safe to use. Because of this, ferulic acid is very common in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
