Antioxidants are widely used to repair damage to the organs in the body. This research aims to look at the effect of the mixture of mengkudu fruit juice and temulawak rhizome juice on MDA levels and SOD activity in diabetic rat liver induced by streptozotocin. The mixed juice is given to white male Wistar strain rats for 28 days after the rats induced by streptozotocin and found diabetes. The results showed that there were differences between the rats which were given preferential treatment with rats which were not given the treatment. The conclusion is the giving of mixture juices of mengkudu fruit and temulawak rhizome can decreases the MDA levels and increases the SOD activity of rat liver induced by streptozotocin.
