Introduction: A growing tendency to the administration of medicinal plants is observed because of their amazing influence on human health. Pharmaceutical and food industries recommend the use of medicinal plants due to their antioxidant properties. Hence, this study was conducted to examine the antioxidant activity of the methanolic extract of Falcaria vulgaris. Methods: Aerial parts of F. vulgaris were dried and ground. Then, plant samples were prepared using homogenizing plant powders in a methanol solution. Finally, the total antioxidant capacity of the plants was assessed by ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) assay. Results: Our findings demonstrated that the total antioxidant capacity was obtained as 2.86 mmol Fe2+/L for the methanolic extract of F. vulgaris. Conclusion: According to the findings, F. vulgaris had a strong antioxidant capacity. It could be concluded that the administration of F. vulgaris in food and pharmaceutical industries could possibly affect positively human health.
