Pomegranate juice (PJ), Spirulina platensis extract (SP) and Echinacea purpurea Extract (EP) was chromatographically analyzed by High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for phenolic and flavonoid compound. Also, this extracts was determined for total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC) and antioxidant activates in terms of scavenging DPPH free radicals. The TPC of (PJ) was 26.15mg gallic acid/g of extract, and TFC was 17.6 mg catechin/g of extract, while total phenolic…
