Abstract

Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) that are not balanced with antioxidants are also known as oxidative stress. ROS are very easy to get, it can be found in the human body itself, because the human body also produce free radical from oxidation processes, inflammation and many more, external causes such as cigarette smoke, and other smoke. This oxidative stress condition can cause premature aging, cancer or other degenerative diseases. Antioxidants can balance these free radicals, one of the natural antioxidants is the marigold plant (Tagetes erecta) that contains lutein which is useful for anti-radicals. The purpose of this study is to know the phytochemical content and antioxidant capacity on methanol extracts of marigold leaf. This research is using methanol as a solvent and the extraction process is by maceration. The in-vitro test consisted of a qualitative phytochemical test (Harborne) than for an antioxidant capacity test with 1,1- Diphenyl-2-Picryhidrazyl (DPPH) test (Blois). The results of qualitative testing showed that marigold leaf extract contains alkaloids, anthocyanins and betacyanin, cardiac glycoside, coumarins, flavonoids, glycosides, phenolics, quinones, saponins, terpenoids and tannins. The antioxidant capacity of marigold leaf extract has (IC50 = 145.79 g/mL) shown that marigold leaf extract has moderate antioxidant capacity.
