Abstract

Propolis is a resinous material that bees collect from the buds and bark of some trees, especially coniferous trees. This natural mastic is rich in active principles, especially phenolic compounds that have major therapeutic properties. The study of the antioxidant activity of propolis extracts from different localities of West Algeria showed that the amount of phenolic compounds and the scavenging activity detected by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl test depends on the geographical situation and local flora of each area of study. The study also confirmed that the remaining extracts are rich in active compounds that can value the other biological activities.

Activité antioxydant de la propolis de l’Ouest Algérien

Résumé

La propolis est une matière résineuse que les abeilles collectent à partir d’écorces et de bourgeons de certains arbres, notamment des conifères. Ce mastic naturel est riche en principes actifs surtout les composés phénoliques qui ont des propriétés thérapeutiques majeurs. L’étude de l’activité antioxydant des extraits de propolis de différentes localités de l’Ouest Algérien ont montré que la quantité en composés phénoliques ainsi que l’activité anti radicalaire par le test de DPPH dépendent de la situation géographique et la flore locale de chaque région d’étude. L’étude a confirmé aussi que le résidu est riche en d’autres constituants actifs qu’on peut la valoriser dans d’autres activités biologiques.
