Abstract

Introduction: Stachys species have been applied externally for the treatment of wounds and used internally for abdominal pains, cramps, dizziness, fever, gout and menstrual disorders. This study aimed to evaluate the in vitro antioxidant and enzyme inhibitory activities of solvent extracts of Stachys byzantina and S. iberica subsp. iberica var. densipilosa.
