The genus Asphodeline
(Liliaceae) is represented in Turkey by 20 taxa, which are traditionally used for medicinal purposes in
Materials and Methods:
In this study, we tested the phytochemical content and antioxidant effect of different solvent extracts obtained from
different anatomical parts of Asphodeline anatolica
. The different extracts of each plant parts were tested for antioxidant activity using different
chemical assays. The total antioxidant components were also calculated.
Generally, acetone extracts produced the seed and root exhibited significantly higher antioxidant activity with high antioxidant
components. Total phenolic content of extracts were significantly correlated with antioxidant potentials (except for, metal chelating activity).
On the basis of the results obtained, A. anatolica
extracts should be regarded as a valuable source of natural antioxidants for food
and therapeutic applications.
