Cardamom oil is one of the active herbs used as a treatment in different diseases by the function of the blood serum components. Among the methods used for identification of function group which acted in the human body, the method of electrochemical analysis using cyclic voltammetry was used to determine the effectiveness of cardamom by the oxidation-reduction reaction in the blood medium. Results showed that the cardamom compound presented peaks of oxidation-reduction in the blood serum medium of 0.8 and -0.65 V, respectively. The oxidation peak disappeared in alkaline pH; hence, the cardamom acted as anti-oxidative compound in alkaline medium and with ascorbic acid. But the oxidation peak was enhanced in acidic pH. Other electrochemical parameters of cardamom in blood serum medium were determined, including studies on different scan rates, reliability and stability.
