Abstract

This work was designed to evaluate the phenolic compounds and biological activities (antioxidant, cytotoxic and anthelmintic) of Teucrium sandrasicum extracts (ethanol and acetone) as well as to determine proximate parameters (such as proteins, carbohydrates, fat). The phenolic contents were identified using HPLC. The ethanol extracts exhibited higher free radical scavenging and antioxidant activities than acetone extracts. The reducing power, metal chelating and radical cation activities were found to be statistically different between the acetone and ethanol extracts. T. sandrasicum exhibited cytotoxic, anthelmintic activities with rich nutrient contents. Based on these results, this plant may be considered as a potentially useful source for the food and pharmaceutical industry.
