Abstract

Haloxylon scoparium and Traganum nudatum are two medicinal plants widely used in Algerian traditional medicine. In the present work, a comparative study was conducted on the Antioxydant evaluation and the quantification of total phenols and flavonoids contents (TPC and TFC) in the ethyl acetate extracts from he two species. The quantitative estimation showed that the extracts are rich in hese compounds. Evaluation of antioxidant activity performed by DPPH free radical trapping, indicated that the extracts present a good antioxidant efficiency. The result obtained showed that the highest antioxidant activity, total phenolic and flavonoid content were exhibited by the extract of ethyl acetate of Haloxylon scoparium compared to the Traganum nudatum ethyl acetate extract.
