  Heavy metals and metalloids are an increasing environmental problem worldwide. Some industrial activities and agricultural practices increase their level in the substrate and the possible introduction of these elements in the food chain is an increasing human health concern. The protection and restoration of soils and water contaminated with heavy metals generate a great need to develop efficient adsorbents for these pollutants. Agricultural fertilizers which contain small amounts of cadmium and lead is widely applied and used in Iran. However, both these heavy metals remain below toxic levels. In contrast, contamination of lowland rice fields by sewage sludge from textile plants and some mining has increased the heavy metal content of the soil and reduced rice yields in these areas (Mazandaran province). Currently remediation of polluted soil is being carried out, using plants such as Vetiveria zizanioides and Eichornia crassipes, plus applications of zeolite in some areas of Meandering province of Iran. This mini review firstly indicate general objectives about remediation and then deal with to some activies about agricultural soil remediation that contaminated with some heavy metals (specially, Pb and Cd in Mazandaran province of Iran. We conclude that above mentioned species, may be an effective species for phytoextraction and should be tested for this purpose in field conditions.

  Camellia sinensis or tea belonging to the family of Theaceae, is widely grown. In Mazandaran provinces in the north of Iran. Tea is known in folk medicine as a medicinal plant that used as hypotensive and anti-diabetic. In this research the aqueous green leaf extract of Camellia sinensis (450 mg kg-1) showed a strong glucose lowering effect after oral administration in rats. The decrease of glycemia has reached to 30% of the control value 2 h after glucose loading. The amount of glucose absorbed in a segment jejunum in situ was 9.2±0.2 mg in presence of tea extract vs. 14.11±0.91 mg in control rats during 2 h (p<0.05). The results indicate that aqueous extract of tea has a significant anti hyperglycemic effect that may be caused in part by the reduction of intestinal glucose absorption.

  The dichloomethane/methanol extract of the roots of Anthocleista schweinfurthii Gilg. has provided a new steroid, schweinfurthiin 1, two known compounds, bauerenone 2 and bauerenol 3 which were found to be highly promising α-glucosidase inhibitors. Along with these, two known xanthones, 1-hydroxy-3, 7, 8-trimethoxyxanthone 4 and 1, 8-dihydroxy-3, 7-dimethoxyxanthone 5 were also isolated.
