The leaves, roots, and stems of M. bealei have long been used for the treatment of dysentery and diarrhea, clearing heat, expelling of toxin, and reducing inflammation [4–6]. Earlier literature reported that the leaves, stems, and roots of M. bealei were rich in cerebrosides and alkaloids [7, 8]. In our previous works, we studied the antiproliferative and antioxidant activities of M. bealei leaves, as well as the isolation and structural elucidation of two triterpenes (ursolic acid and oleanolic acid), two alkaloids (berberine and jatrorrhizine), and two flavonoids (quercetin and quercetin 3-O--D-xylopyranoside) from the leaves of M. bealei [1, 9]. However, to the best of our knowledge, no investigation was carried out to study the secondary metabolites of M. bealei branches. In the current work, we describe the isolation and purification of 10 secondary metabolites (1–10) from M. bealei branches. The chemical structures
