Prunus amygdalus is used in traditional for the cure of ulcer. Since the activity may be correlated with the presence of antioxidant compound were evaluated for their total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC), ferric reducing ability (parameter (FRAP), 1,1-diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH) in extract of Prunus amygdalus fruit.
