Lamiaceae family, including the Teucrium genus, is Turkey's third richest family. Albeit Teucrium's gene center is the Mediterranean Territory, they grow in almost every habitat and altitude of the world. In this study, objective of this study was to determine the nutrient and mineral contents of two species (Teucrium polium L. and Teucrium chamaedrys L. subsp. chamaedrys) belonging to Teucrium genus distributed naturally in Van province in Eastern Anatolia Region. In the plant samples, total ash, crude protein, pH, crude fiber and some mineral including N, Na, Mg, K, Ca, P, S, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, Cr, Cd, Co, Pb contents were observed.
