Abstract

Introduction. Scientific studies in recent years have shown that there is a certain relationship between the content in plants, medicinal plant raw materials and food products of macro- and microelements and the incidence of certain diseases. Human health is influenced by a range of factors and the content of macro- and microelements is only one aspect of these connections. Safe value of biologically active substances (BAS) of plants is that they contain in its composition a balanced complex elements that for the human body are not strangers. Many medicinal plants can accumulate high concentrations of essential macro- and microelements, which gives them significant benefits in the prevention and treating large number of diseases associated with the imbalance of macro- and microelements in human organism. Plant material capable of accumulation of chemical elements in the process of vegetation and has the ability to the release of these compounds during extraction and formation of complex herbal remedies.

The aim of the study – to investigate the macro- and microelement composition of the leaves of pine and mountain pine harvested in Ukraine in order to study the possibility of their further use as phytopreparations.

Research Methods. The study was carried out on the basis of accredited Biochemical laboratory of Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University. In the studied species the accumulation of items such as cuprum, zinc, ferum, cadmium, magnesium was determined. Determination of elements was carried out on atomic absorption spectrophotometer C-115PC in the air-acetylene flame using computer decoding of the contents of elements in comparison with the standard.

Results and Discussion. The leaves of pine harvested in Ivano-Frankivsk region the quantitative content of macro- and microelements namely Cu, Zn, Mg, Cd, S, Co, Ni, Pb, Cr. The content of Cd was within permissible limits.

Conclusions. For the first time there was studied the composition of macro- and micronutrients raw materials Pinus sylvestris L. and Pinus mugo TURRA which grew on the territory of Ivano-Frankivsk and Transcarpathian region 5 elements were identified. The content of macro- and microelements in the leaves of Pinus sylvestris L. and Pinus mugo TURRA correspond to the following patterns:Cu>Zn>Fe>Cd>Mg.
