Chemical Information
FooDB NameChicoric acid
DescriptionD-chicoric acid, also known as D-chicate, belongs to tetracarboxylic acids and derivatives class of compounds. Those are carboxylic acids containing exactly four carboxyl groups. D-chicoric acid is practically insoluble (in water) and a moderately acidic compound (based on its pKa). D-chicoric acid can be found in green vegetables, which makes D-chicoric acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product. Cichoric acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, an organic compound of the phenylpropanoid class and occurs in a variety of plant species. It is a derivative of both caffeic acid and tartaric acid .

immunostimulant50847 A substance that augments, stimulates, activates, potentiates, or modulates the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. A classical agent (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contains bacterial antigens. It could also be endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Its mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy is related to its antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.DUKE
