Bottom Line: L-NAME administration induced marked increase in blood pressure, peripheral vascular resistance, and oxidative stress.The antihypertensive effect of MP treatment was associated with suppression of superoxide production from carotid strips and also with an increase in eNOS protein expression and nitric oxide bioavailability.The present results provide evidence for the antihypertensive effect of MP and suggest that MP might be useful as a dietary supplement against hypertension.

ABSTRACT
Reactive oxygen species (ROS)-induced oxidative stress plays a major role in pathogenesis of hypertension. Antidesma thwaitesianum (local name: Mamao) is a tropical plant distributed in the tropical/subtropical areas of the world, including Thailand. Mamao pomace (MP), a by-product generated from Mamao fruits, contains large amounts of antioxidant polyphenolic compounds. The aim of this study was to investigate the antihypertensive and antioxidative effects of MP using hypertensive rats. For this purpose, male Sprague-Dawley rats were given Nω-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), an inhibitor of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), in drinking water (50 mg/kg) for three weeks. MP extract was orally administered daily at doses of 100 and 300 mg/kg. L-NAME administration induced marked increase in blood pressure, peripheral vascular resistance, and oxidative stress. MP treatment significantly prevented the increase in blood pressure, hindlimb blood flow and hindlimb vascular resistance of L-NAME treated hypertensive rats (p < 0.05). The antihypertensive effect of MP treatment was associated with suppression of superoxide production from carotid strips and also with an increase in eNOS protein expression and nitric oxide bioavailability. The present results provide evidence for the antihypertensive effect of MP and suggest that MP might be useful as a dietary supplement against hypertension.

Effect of Mamao pomace extract (MP) on systolic blood pressure during Nω-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester (l-NAME)-induced hypertension. The blood pressure of normotensive and l-NAME hypertensive rats was measured for 3 weeks by tail-cuff plethysmography. MP was administered at doses of 100 (MP100) and 300 (MP300) mg/kg/day. Values are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM) of 8–10 animals/group. *p < 0.05 vs. normal control group, #p < 0.05 vs.l-NAME control group, †p < 0.05 vs.l-NAME + MP100 group.

Mentions: Administration of l-NAME via drinking water induced an increase of blood pressure in rats within the first week and the systolic blood pressure (SBP) increased progressively during the course of three-week treatment (Figure 1). Daily administration of MP prevented the rise in SBP and stabilized SBP on the second and third weeks (Figure 1).
