A screening study on neuraminidase inhibitory constituents was carried out, and activity-guided fractionations of three plants, Gouania obtusifolia, Zizyphus cambodiana, and Mangifera odorata, led to the isolation of eleven compounds (1-11). Mangiferin was identified as a significant neuraminidase inhibitor.
