Peanut is one of the most important crops in the world, both for vegetative oil and as a protein source. It is the fourth important oilseed crop of the world in production after soybean, cottonseed and rapeseed. It also contains flavonoids, carbohydrate, mineral and vitamins. The previous pharmacological studies showed that peanut exerted antioxidant, hypolipidemic, antiinflammatory , analgesia mediated by opioid receptor affinity, sympathomimetic, endocrine, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, sedative, hypotensive  and  haemostatic effects.
