The FRAP assay shows that the antioxidant activity was between 07.03±0.29 and 117.51±6.46 mmol Trolox/g of extract. The IC50 values from different extracts of Thymus satureoides were between 0.41±0.005 and 43.89±2.46 mg/mL of extract. The different extracts were also, demonstrated the important significantly (p<0.001) reduction of the malondialdehyde.
