Abstract

Garcinia kola, (a herb grown in Nigeria; calorific value 358.54 k.cal/100g) inhibited in vitro lipid peroxidation of rat liver homogenate in a dose dependent manner. The inhibitory activity of G.kola was not affected by heating (100°C/10 min). The antioxidant component of G.kola was soluble in aqueous and ethanolic media. The active component(s) in G. kola responsible for its inhibitory activity on lipid peroxidation is tentatively identified as isoflavones.
