Chemical Composition And Antibacterial Activity Of Linum Usitatissimum L. (Flaxseed)

Zainab G. Hussien, Raghad A. Aziz.

Abstract
Linum usitatissimum L.is one of dietary sources including different types of phenolics such as phenolic acid, flavonoids, lignans and tannins. The present study was carried out to estimate the antibacterial activity of Linum usitatissimum L.extracts against three species of illness bacteria were obtained from stock cultures. We performed the agar diffusion method and indicated the bactericidal action.
The results of Microbiological tests were displayed some difference between the effect of Linum usitatissimum L. on the declining of the bacterial species growth. Aqueous extract of Linum usitatissimum L. showed inhibition zone against bacteria ranged from 16 to 25 mm, while alcoholic extract achieved inhibition zone against bacteria ranged from 17.5 to 27 mm. In present study we indicate that extracts derived from Flaxseed might be the active source of antibacterial compounds and the hopeful alternate to antibiotic therapy.

Key words: Limum usitatisimum, Flaxseed, antibacterial activity, chemical composition.
