Resumo: Historically, extracts and preparations of plants are the basis of traditional medicine and the starting point for the discovery of new therapeutic agents. Cytisus multiflorus and Eriocephalus africanus are small shrubs native from Iberian Peninsula and South Africa, respectively, and distributed in Mediterranean region. Despite their common application in folk medicine and claimed health benefits, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, there is still a lack of scientific data supporting this. In this work, phenolic-enriched extracts of Cytisus multiflorus and Eriocephalus africanus were obtained and evaluated in chemical models for their phenolic content, antioxidant capacities and their role in inflammatory process. Overall, the results from the chemical tests indicated that Cytisus multiflorus extract was more promising regarding antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties reason why this extract was then further tested for these activities in biological models. The present communication will focus on the experimental data obtained so far by our group for the phenolic-enriched extracts of Cytisus multiflorus and Eriocephalus africanus, as a valid contribution to clarify the mechanisms of action of the claimed antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of the two plants.
