Abstract: Lindera obtusiloba Bl belongs to the genus Lindera, which has a long history of medicinal use and a wide range of uses. It has many significant physiological activities such as improving blood circulation, treating inflammation and preventing liver injury. Investigations about the chemical compounds of L. obtusiloba have shown that its main compounds include butyrolactones, lignans, flavonoids, phytosterols, volatile oils and phenolic glycosides, with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, cytotoxicity, anti-oxidation and anti-fibrosis activities. At present, there are few reports on its chemical constituents and physiological activities. Herein, we summarized the reported chemical constituents and physiological activities of L. obtusiloba and laid a foundation for further research.

Key words: Lindera obtusiloba, chemical constituents, pharmacological effects
