Abstract

This research evaluated antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity in a methanol extract of four medicinal plants of Lamiaceae family. Folin-Ciocalteu reagent assay was used to estimate the phenolic contents of extracts. The antioxidant activities of the samples were measured by two different methods (DPPH and ABTS) while the anti-inflammatory activity was studied by LOX assay. Thymus vulgaris extract showed the highest total phenolic content followed by Ocimum canum, Ocimum adscendens and Leucas linifolia respectively. The strongest antioxidant scavenging activity was shown in Ocimum canum extract by DPPH assay while the highest antioxidant capacity was found in Thymus vulgaris extract by ABTS assay. Thymus vulgaris extract showed the highest anti-inflammatory activity followed by Ocimum canum, Leucas linifolia and Ocimum adscendens respectively.
