Hypericum perforatum antik çağlardan beri bazı hastalıkları tedavi etmek için hekimler tarafından kullanılmıştır. Günümüzde insanların doğal tedavilere yönelmesi açısından fitoterapi önemli bir yere sahiptir. Farmakolojik önem taşıyan ve geleneksel ilaç olarak kullanılan H. perforatum bitkisinin biyoaktivitelerinin incelenmesi önem arz etmektedir. H. perforatum bitkisi Adıyaman Çelikhan bölgesinde dağlık alanda hasat edilmiştir. Bu bitki ekstraksiyon işlemine tabi tutulup, elde edilen ekraktın antioksidan kapasiteleri incelenmiştir. H. perforatum bitkisi DPPH serbest radikal giderme aktivitesi ve FRAP indirgeme gücü aktivitesi açısından değerlendirildiğinde önemli bir aktiviteye sahip olduğu görülmüştür.

Hypericum perforatum has been used by physicians since ancient times to treat certain diseases. Nowadays, phytotherapy has an important place for people to turn to natural treatments. It is significant to examine the bioactivity of H. perforatum which is of pharmacological importance and used as a traditional medicine. H. perforatum plant was harvested in mountainous area in Celikhan region of Adiyaman. This plant was subjected to extraction process and the antioxidant capacity of the obtained extract was examined. H. Perforatum was found to have remarkable activity when evaluated for DPPH free radical scavenging activity and FRAP reducing power activity.
