Medicinal plants like menthe and rosemary are traditionally used for disease treatment because of the chemical composition and antioxidant capacity. Different methods of extraction will result in different content of bioactive compounds in obtained extracts. Consequently, chemical and biological effect of extracted compounds will differ from one sample to another. Menthe extracte has the highest amounts of polyphenols and  the highest antioxidant capacity.. Menthe extract showed cell type dependend antioxidative/prooxidative nature, while rosmary extract induced free radicals at higher concentrations.
