Graphical Abstract:
 Ten steroidal saponins have been isolated form the seeds of Hyoscyamus niger L. for the first time and their structures have been elucidated. Seven saponins belong to spirostane series, two are furostane-type and one is pregnane glycoside. Hyoscyamosides B, C and C2 are new steroidal saponins, which have never been reported before in literature. Complete assignments of the 1H and 13C NMR chemical shifts for all these glycosides were achieved by means of one- and two-dimensional NMR techniques, including 1H–1H COSY, HSQC, HMBC and ROESY spectra.
