An oil extract was prepared from the above-ground part of the snakeflower Lamium album; this contained a total chlorophyll derivative content of 0.46 ± 0.02 mg/ml. The extractant was a biphasic system consisting of ethanol and sunflower oil. Studies of the biological activities of the snakeflower oil extract were performed in models of hemolytic and iron-deficiency anemia. The antianemic activity of Lamium album L. was assessed in each of these models.
