Plants have always been used by humans to relieve and cure many diseases unfortunately the majority of them still unknown. The aims of this study were to evaluate the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of tannin crude extract of Helianthemum helianthemoïdes (Desf.) Grosser. The antioxidant activity was performed by DPPH radical scavenging method and the reducing power essay; however, the anti-inflammatory activity was tested with the Human Red Blood Cell (HRBC) membrane stabilization method. The obtained results indicated high antioxidant potential and a perfect anti-inflammatory agent.
