In studiul efectuat de Sahin et al. (2003) s-a evaluat efectul antimicrobian al extractelor de Satureja hortensis L.

Activitile antimicrobiene ale extractelor contra 147 de tulpini de laborator aparin 55 de specii de bacterii , precum i 31 de tulpini de drojdie 1 i 4 specii de fungi au fost testate utiliznd testul de difuziune disc . Rezultatele au artat c extractele hexanice de Satureja hortensis nu au avut efect antifungic , dar au prezentat activitate antibacterian mpotriva a patru tulpini de la trei specii Bacillus, in timp ce extractul metanolic a avut atat efect att anti Candida cat i antibacterian . Acesta a inhibat creterea a 23 de tulpini de la 11 specii bacteriene i 6 tulpini de Candida albicans , la concentraia de 300microg/ml . Extractul metanolic a demonstrate un spectru mai larg si o activitate puternica, prin comparative cu extractul hexanic.

Frunzele de Satureja hortensis sunt bogate n compui fenolici i flavonoide, in special acid rozmarinic, care prezint o capacitate antioxidant ridicata (Exarchou et al., 2002;

Kemertelidze et al., 2004 ).


Studiile pe animale au demonstrat activitatea anti-inflamatorie a extractelor de S. hortensis i a fraciunii sale polifenolice, n special (Hajhashemi et al., 2002; Uslu et al., 2003). Aceast activitate poate fi asociat, cel puin parial, cu acid rozmarinic, ale crui proprieti antiinflamatoare i antialergic au fost demonstrate n studii pe animale i umane (Sanbongi et al., 2003; 2004).
