In folk remedies the ivy plant has become known as a herbal ingredient in cellulite and anti-fat remedies and treatments.
It has shiny, dark green leaves which are paler on the back and coriaceous, alternate and petiolate. The leaves can be anything from triangular to palmate-lobulate in shape and oval at the flower heads.
The yellow-green flowers blossom from September to October in small spherical umbels. The Ivy calyx has five short teeth welded to the ovary and five light yellow-green petals which are lanceolate and reflexed. The globulous fruit is blue-black and has four or five pink seeds.
This climbing plant is very common in European forests and the parts which are used are the wood and, more importantly, the leaves.
The constituents of ivy are triterpenoid saponins, comprising the hederagenin glycosides, hederacoside C (5%) ? and ß-hederin and the oleanolic acid glycosides, hederacoside, phenolic acids, flavonoids, malic acid and fatty acids. It further contains rutin and nicotifloroside in the flavonoids which are part of the phenolic compounds as well as caffeic and chlorogenic acids.
The active ingredients are the triterpenic saponins which are to be found in all parts of the plant.
 ß and K hederin have been isolated and later the hederacoside. Hederacoside A is hydrolysable into glucose, arabinose and hederagenine, this lat compound belonging to the group of pentacyclical triterpenes; and B hederacoside can be hydrolyzed into rhamnose, arabinose and oleanic acid.
