Herbs, spices and botanical preparations often exhibit antimicrobial
properties due to a wide array of terpenoid and polyphenolic compounds.
Indeed, culinary herbs have long been used to control pests and food-borne
yeasts and molds in the context of food safety.(1)
Artemisia dracunculus (Tarragon). A culinary herb yielding a
characteristic aromatic oil. The essential oil of tarragon yields a
complex mixture of almost 50 different components. The most potent
antibacterial constituents include anisaldehyde, paracymene, eugenol,
liminene, linalool, menthol, cisocimene, alpha phellandrene, alpha
pinene and beta pinene.(1) The essential oil of tarragon inhibited growth
of E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococus aureus, Streptococcus
faecalis and Yersinia in vitro. In addition, extracts of tarragon inhibited
iron ascorbate-induced lipid peroxidation of microsomes prepared
from human lymphoblastic cells indicating its antioxidant potential.(2)
Sida cordifolia (Country mallow). Sida cordifolia has been used
in India since ancient times. It contains triglycerides, phytosterols,
oleoresin and alkaloids, such as quinazoline alkaloids, asparagine,
but no tannins. (3,4) A low level of ephedrine was reported (0.085%).
However, at this level, one capsule of FC-Cidal™ would contain
negligible amounts of ephedrine (approximately 4 mcg). Phenylamine,
tryptamine derivatives, vasicinonene, vasicine and vasicinol have
also been reported.(3,4) In addition, the leaves contain soluble gums
(mucilages) that can act as demulcents. Sida cordifolia was shown
to possess antibacterial and antifungal properties in experiments
performed with rats.(3)
Tinaspora cordifolia (Guduchi). This herb has also been used
traditionally in India. It contains bitter substances, giloin (a glycoside),
gilenin, gilosterol and tinosporine.(5) Ethanol extracts of T. cordifolia,
in combination with several other herbs, had a minimal inhibitory
concentration (MIC) of 1 mg/ml when tested in vitro against Entamoeba
(6) Using an in vitro assay system with Candida albicans as the
test organism, the activity of rat macrophages was increased by the
administration of T. cordifolia at a level of 100 mg/kg.(7)

Equisetum arvense
(Horsetail). In addition
to a high percentage of
silicates, horsetail contains a
variety of polyphenols, such
as agigenin and luteolin
glycosides. These flavones
are typical of American
and Asian species, but not
the European Equisetum
species.(8) This herb also
contains quercetin, and
more unusual polyphenolics,
such as genkwanin and progenkwanin glycosides. Horsetail also
contains sterols, such as beta sitosterol and campestrol as primary
sterol constituents.(9) The antimicrobial activity of horsetail extracts has
been reported.(10) Extracts are reported to stimulate flow through the
ureters.(8) and they have been used as a component of herbal teas and
herbal mixtures.
Olea europaea (Olive leaf). Various flavonoids and their glycosides
have been isolated from olives and olive leaves, such as apigenin,
luteolin, rutin and quercetin.(11) Oleuropein, a bitter principle of
olives, is a glucoside and phenolic ester of elenolate, which is a
multifunctional monoterpene. In vitro studies demonstrated that
elenolate can inhibit several viruses.(12) Furthermore, olive phenolic
compounds inhibited the growth of spore-forming bacteria(13) and
Staphylococcus aureus.(14) Isolated flavonoids from olives, as well as
olive extracts, inhibited the classical complement pathway assayed by
the hemolysis of erythrocytes. Therefore olive polyphenols may help
balance inflammatory mechanisms.(15)
Thymus vulgaris (Thyme). An aromatic culinary herb, thyme has long
been used as a seasoning and food preservative.(16) Thyme contains
1-2.5% as an aromatic oil enriched in monoterpenes. Thymol content
