Halophytic plants are more susceptible for oxidative stress and damage due to high contents of salt and minerals inside these plants. Therefore, self defence against this oxidative stress appeared in the high phenolics particularly, flavonoids content are abundant in these plants. Mesembryanthemum crystallinum, Limoniastrum guyonianum and Anabasis articulate are three of halophytic plants growing in Mediterranean coast of Libya and most of North African countries, were taken as example for estimating the phenolic and flavonoids contents as well as antioxidant evaluation in order to understanding the effect of habitat of these plant imitation on the by-products production. Our present work suggested that, there are high relations between the qualitative and quantitative constituent of these halophytic plants which growing near to each other in the same environment.
