Total Lipid Content and Fatty Acid Composition of Seeds of Some Wild Achillea Species
- 27 Downloads
The Achillea species are known as civanpercemi, barsamotu, marsamotu, binbiryaprakotu, and kandilcicegi in Turkish . The important features of Achillea species are that they have protective activity, antiulcer activity, antispasmodic activity, and biological effects [2, 3]. Most members of the Achillea species are antiseptic and have been used in medicine and cosmetic preparations [4, 5]. Although many studies have been conducted on the chemical and pharmacological properties of this genus [6, 7, 8], there is not enough information on the fatty acid composition of the seed oils of Achillea species [9, 10, 11, 12, 13]. Therefore, we aim to study the total lipid content and fatty acid composition of the seeds of some wild endemic Achillea species (A. cucullata, A. phrygia, and A. armenorum).
