Abstract

In this study, we reported the medicinal and therapeutic potential of 10 Indonesian herbal plants, including their antioxidant activities, metabolite, and mineral content. In all samples, metabolites were extracted from the rhizome of the plants using the maceration method with methanol as solvent. Antioxidant activity of the dried and powdered extract was assessed using the DPPH method, the total phenolic content (TPC) was analyzed using the Folin-Ciocalteu method, the total flavonoid content (TFC) was analyzed using the aluminum chloride colorimetry method, and mineral content was analyzed using XRF Analyzer. Our results TPC and TFC are positively correlated with the antioxidant activity of the extract, for example, high TPC (990.3 mg GAE/) and TFC (104.4 mg QE/g) in Curcuma heyneana extract were accompanied by the high antioxidant activity of the extract. Further, we found that Kempferia galangal L. extract has the most diverse mineral composition, but it has the lowest TPC and antioxidant activity.
