Abstract

The results of this study have shown that the aerial parts of the plant contain the unsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acld (40.6%) and linoleic acid (22.7%) as major components. The aqueous/methanoi extract of the Ferula was assigned highest amount of total phenolic and highest amount of total flavonoids. The methanol and methanol/water extracts were shown the high DPPH radical activity. The methanol/water extract has shown the most effective in the total antioxidant assay against the other extracts The antiradical and antioxidant activities of the methanol/water extract of Ferula persica wete correlated with the amounts of total phenolic and flavonoids. lt can be concluded that, this plant have the potential that can be used as an accessible source of natural antioxidants with consequent health benefits.
