The studies of nobiletin and other polymethoxyflavones from citrus peels become prevalent in recent years due to many well-established evidences showing their multiple efficacious biological activities. The biotransformation study of polymethoxyflavones, particularly nobiletin has emerged along with the significant findings of nobiletin bioactivity. Major nobiletin metabolites from rodent biofluids have been successfully characterized, isolated or synthesized for the evaluation of their biological activities and subsequently revealed that nobiletin metabolites demonstrate similar efficacies or more potent anti-oxidant activity and scavenging property against free radicals and in the inhibition of inflammation and cancer growth, and the prevention of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases. This review starts with basic chemistry of nobiletin and other polymethoxyflavones, highlights their biological properties and recent findings and summarizes nobiletin's biotransformation and biological activities of the main nobiletin metabolites. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Muscadine grape extracts are disclosed that have antioxidant properties. The extracts are a mixture of extracts from bronze and purple muscadine grapes that unexpectedly increase the solubility of ellagic acid in the mixture. Solvent extracts are obtained in some examples by water extracting the pomaces of the grapes from which the juice has substantially been removed. Further surprising increases in ellagic acid solubility can also be obtained by adding an additional source of anthocyanins to the extract, for example by including in the composition an extract of whole purple muscadine grapes from which substantial amounts of the juice have not been removed. Other additional sources of anthocyanins include blueberries, blackberries and raspberries; the additional source of anthocyanins can be obtained from a fruit processing waste stream to increase the efficiency of the production process.

Antioxidant compositions are disclosed that include muscadine pomace extract and resveratrol from a source other than muscadine. In other examples the composition also includes polyphenols from a source other than muscadine. The compositions increase the expression of antioxidant genes and/or genes associated with mitochondrial biogenesis.
