Six new triterpene glycosides, repensosides A-F (1-6, resp.), were isolated from the roots of Gypsophila repens L. Their structures, established by extensive 1D- and 2D-NMR spectroscopic experiments as well as MS analyses, were found to be based on gypsogenic acid (or gypsogenin) as aglycone, with three to nine branched or unbranched sugar moieties.
