Abstract
Ten saponins named phytolaccoside $A{\sim}I$ and O were separated and shown to contain only $_D-glucose$ as sugar except phytolaccoside A which contains only $_D-xylose$. Phytolaccagenic acid was found to be a genin for phytolaccosides A and D, phytolaccagenin for B, E and F, jaligonic acid for G, and esculentic acid for C, H, I and O, respectively. The total saponin fraction exhibited strong anti-inflammatory activity.
