Abstract:
For studies, we choose an aqueous and an alcoholic extract of Myrtilli folium plant. In its composition this plant has different compounds with antioxidant properties; the extracts obtained having also hypoglycemic and astringent effects. Antioxidant activity was measured by chemiluminescence means. Antiradical activity was measured using DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) radical scavenging assays and relate to activity of ascorbic acid. Extracts of studied plant present antioxidant activity and radical scavenging activity that is comparative with the same activity of ascorbic acid.
