This meaning of this specific work is to identify and quantify the polyphenolic compounds that exist in plants with bioactive potentially. The study was monitorising 16 different plants: bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus), artichoke (Cynara scolymus), chicory (Cichorium intybus), dumb (Teucrium chamaedrys), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), thorn (Xanthium spinosum), juniper (Juniperus communis), mint (Mentha), cranberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea), hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna), wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), willow herb (Epilobium), lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum), oregano (Origanum vulgare), centaury (Centaurium erythraea). The total polyphenolic compound was determined on spectrophotometric method, Folin-Ciocalteu. The polyphenols have a very wide range value starting on low amounts on centaury (Centaurium erythraea) 271.613 mg/L and reaching highest values of 5975.616 mg/L in wormwood (Artemisia absinthium). The results can be use in the design of digestive drinks in the food industry due to higher concentration of total polyphenols in the studied plants.
