Ganoderma lucidum is one of the many mushrooms utilized by the people as a medicine for cancer, asthma, diabetes and hearth disease. The purpose of this experiment is to determine the antioxidant activity of the extracts from G. lucidum using different solvents. The simplicial powder of G. lucidum are subjected to maceration using water, methanol, ethyl acetate, methylene chloride, and n-hexane; and evaporated the solvent until a viscous extract was obtained. The methanol extract shows highest antioxidant activity with IC50 value of 251.95 μg/mL.
