Introduction: Scientists have shown a growing interest in the use of herbs due to their valuable effect on human health. The antioxidant activity of medicinal plants is a powerful reason to use them in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Hence, the aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant properties of Nasturtium officinale. Methods: Aerial parts of N. officinale 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 ability of plasma (FRAP) assay. Results: The results of the evaluation of the antioxidant activity of N. officinale exhibited that the total antioxidant capacity was obtained as 2.83 mmol Fe2+/L. Conclusion: Our findings showed a potent antioxidant activity for N. officinale. It is recommended that the administration of N. officinale for therapeutic purposes could possibly possess beneficial health effects.
