Introduction: In the Laboratory of the University National of Colombia in Palmira, a study about the nuclei fulfilled phytochemical of the plants Scutellaria incarnata Vent and Justicia pectoralis Jacq, was performed. The objective of the study was to consolidate the scientific information for the invima for the two phytotherapeutic products extracted during the industrialization of the J. pectoralis. Material and Methods: The characterization was made with the extract from each plant using the protocols recomended by The World Health Organization (WHO). Results: The extracts are showing medicinal characteristics that can control the symptoms, which produce the sadness, distress, anxiety, depression, irritability, “that make you crying easily” and the stress. All these illness state are the second cause of absenteeism in the world. Once all the protocols were performed the presence of tannins, phenols, flavonoids, saponins, terpenoids and coumarins were detected. Conclusions: All chemicals compounds may be responsible for the biological activity. It is important to highlight that coumarins of those plants in associate with other present metabolites can help antioxidants activities and anticarcinogenic.
