The methanol soluble part of Lotus garcinii, belonging to the family Fabaceae, yielded three new interesting metabolites: garceine (1), garoside (2) and garthiol (3), which have never been detected from any natural source. In addition, isophytol, hexadecanoic acid, cholesterol, oleanolic acid, butulinic acid and lupeol were also obtained for the first time from L. garcinii}. All the isolated metabolites were characterized by spectroscopic means.
