Abstract

High cholesterol level in blood is one of deadly cardiovascular disease's causes which is triggered by accumulation of cholesterol patching in blood vessels through heart and using synthetic medicine has several side effect. However, tanjung (M. elengi) which abundant in Indonesia is believed that it can strengthen and clean plaque in blood vessels wall. In this study, anti-cholesterol activity of tanjung (M. elengi) leaf extract in the water will be tested by in vivo method to 6 group of mice (Mus musculus) DDY-strain. The result showed that tanjung (M. elengi) leaf extract has significant effect to decrease total cholesterol level of mice, more extract given to mice, it will give higher cholesterol decreasing. TE 3 can decrease cholesterol level as much as 36%. In this study, it can be concluded that tanjung (M. elengi) leaf extract can be used as cholesterol decreasing medicine.
