Camel urine has been widely used in the biomedical field as a traditional healing liquid for several health disorders, this study aims to evaluate the antioxidant activity of camel urine and its association with the breeding and the feeding system. Urine samples were collected from domestic (from private farms) and desertic camels, where spectrophotometric method was chosen to evaluate the phenolic, flavonoid content and the antioxidant activity. As results, it was found from the applied testes that the antioxidant activity of the camel urine is very important, where both types of urine illustrated a very low EC50. However, it has been found that the significant anti-radical activity and a reducing power of urine of domesticated camels fed in private farms was higher than the urine of desertic camels. concluding that the consumption and usage of camel urine can contribute to the prevention of diseases associated with oxidative stress.
