Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the influence of geographical origin on the total flavonoid content (TFC), total phenolic content (TPC) and antioxidant activities of ethanol extract for Piper sarmentosum leaf from different  origins.  TFC  and  TPC  assay used  Aluminum Trichloride  and Folin-Ciocalteu  method, respectively.  The  antioxidant  activity  was  measured  using  DPPH  (1,1- diphenyl-2-picrylhidrazyl),  β- carotene-linoleate and xanthine oxidase inhibition assay. The leaf extracts exhibited significant correlation between TPC and TFC with antioxidant activities. ANOVA analysis showed significant differences (p<0.05) between all sample in the TFC, TPC and antioxidant results. It suggests that different locations can influence the TFC, TPC and antioxidant activities of the plant extracts.
