Sivakumaran et al [8] found that the proanthocyanidin extracted from Dorycnium rectum leaves could significantly inhibit Clostridium aminophilum, Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens, and Clostridium proteoclasticum, and the suppressive effect was related to their structure, whereas it could not suppress Ruminococcus albus and Peptostreptococcus anaerobius.
