A study has evaluated the effects of myrtle (Myrtus communis) on gastro-intestinal transit and gastric emptying in rats. Adult male wistar rats were used to evaluate the normal transit and gastric emptying, through enteropooling tests, and small intestine oxidative stress. The effect of myrtle berries juice (MBJ) (5 and 10ml/kg, bw. p.o.) was after compared to the loperamide and clonidine effects after diarrhea was induced in rats by oral administration of castor oil (5 ml/kg, b.w. p.o.).

Myrtle berries juice significantly and dose-dependently inhibited the intestinal motility and gastric emptying. Myrtle berries juice administration induced a significant dose-dependent protection against diarrhea and intestinal fluid accumulation. Castor oil-induced intestinal hypersecretion was accompanied by an oxidative stress status in the intestine, which was attenuated by myrtle berries juice administration.


Mechanism of antidiarrheal effect of myrtle berry juice


Myrtle berries juice had a potent protective effects against castor oil-induced diarrhea in part due, to its antioxidant and antisecretory properties.
