What Are Saponins?

Antioxidants, vitamins, and saponins provide our bodies with nutrients to keep us healthy, strong, and radiant, but do we know how they work? And how beneficial they can be, especially, the less-known supplement, Saponins. Read on to find out.


What are Saponins?

Saponins are naturally occurring chemical compounds that can be found in abundance within a variety of plant species. More specifically, they’re characterized by containing either an amphipathic glycoside or triterpene. For my non-science folks, this just describes what they look like at the chemical level. They’re distinguished by their soap-like foaming properties which they produce when shaken in aqueous (water) solutions.
Where can they be found?
Saponins have historically been understood to be plant-derived, however, as science evolves and our knowledge grows about the world, we now understand that they can also be isolated from marine organisms such as the sea cucumber.


Health Benefits Saponins Provide.

Various clinical studies have found that saponins have a health-promoting effect on the immune system. They help protect the human body against cancers and even lower cholesterol levels. Scientists have discovered that they interact with the cell membrane in different ways to decrease blood lipids, lower blood sugar responses, and lower the risk of developing cancer.


Where Can the Most Saponins be Found?

Earlier, I mentioned that saponins are widely found in plants. Well, one of the plants that provide the most saponins when extracted happens to be the soapberry plant. Additionally, they can be found in various parts of the world including, Southern Asia, India, and Australia. They not only give us access to their saponins, but they also have a considerable amount of amino acids and antioxidants.
