OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to investigated the effect of MO leaves extract as an antioxidant in inhibiting methemoglobin (MetHb) formation compared with Vitamin C as positive control.

METHODS: This study was an experimental study in vitro comparing the antioxidant effects of MO leaves extract with vitamin C as positive control and saline as a negative control. Hemoglobin was oxidized with potassium ferrocyanide then the antioxidant effect of MO leaf extract was determined by measuring methemoglobin levels.

RESULTS: This study showed that MO leaves extract have antioxidant effects compared to saline, MO leaves extract 1600ppm showed no significant differences with Vitamin C 1600ppm (p=0.067). MO leaves extract 3200ppm showed no significant difference with all Vitamin C levels (p>0.05). This shows that MO leaves extract has antioxidant effects like Vitamin C.

CONCLUSION: M. oleifera leaves extract has antioxidant effects on hemoglobin oxidation induced by potassium ferricyanida.
