Plants are important natural materials used in complementary medicine. Many researches in recent years have revealed that plants have significant antioxidant potentials. In this study, the total antioxidant status (TAS), total oxidant status (TOS) and oxidative stress index (OSI) of Teucrium polium L. collected from Duhok (Iraq) region were determined. The ethanol extracts of the plant were extracted in the soxhlet device. TAS, TOS and OSI values were determined using Rel Assay kits. As a result of the studies, it was determined that TAS value of plant extracts was 3.715 ± 0.100, TOS value was 10.496 ± 0.106 and OSI value was 0.283 ± 0.005. In this context, it was determined that T. polium has antioxidant potential and can be used as a natural antioxidant source.
