One of the largest genera of the Lamiaceae family, genus Teucrium, belongs to the subfamily Lamioideae which comprises nearly of 340 herbaceous perennial, rarely annual species displaying remarkable variation. They are most common in Mediterranean climates and Middle East and Iran, particularly, is one of the centers of origin of the genus Teucrium with twelve species, described by the common Persian name of ‘Maryam-Nokhodi’ and about 25% of endemics. Most of the genera of this family have been reported to possess a variety of biologically active compounds.Teucrium stocksianum Boiss. is one of the native perennial species distributed just in south parts of Iran. This plant is an aromatic shrub, which has been used in traditional medicine system for the treatment of burning feet syndrome, colds, diabetes, feminine sterility, fever, malaria, pyrexia, renal colic, skin ailments and sore throat. On the basis of reported traditional uses of T. stocksianum Boiss. species, we carried out current experimental work to explore the plant on scientific grounds. In the present phytochemical study, two secondary metabolites (1, 2), were isolated and identified (Figure 1) by NMR spectroscopic studies from the aerial parts of T. stocksianum Boiss.
