We selected 8 plants among 11 Jeju native plants to search useful natural anti-oxidants by determining the amount of total polyphenols and the various anti-oxidative effects. Ethyl acetate extracts of Castanopsis sieboldii (Makino) Hatus. and butanol extracts of Oenothera laciniata Hill showed strong DPPH free radical scavenging effect. The IC50 value of each solvent extract was 1.6 ㎍/㎖ and 2.4 ㎍/㎖, respectively. The ethyl acetate fraction of Castanea crenata Siebold & Zucc exhibited strong inhibition against nitric oxide production. For the inhibition of xanthine oxidase, the ethyl acetate extracts of Castanea crenata Siebold & Zucc showed strong inhibition activity with 16 ㎍/㎖ of its IC50. The ethyl acetate extracts from Castanopsis sieboldii (Makino) Hatus showed strong superoxide scavenging effect with 7 ㎍/㎖ of its IC50. The hydroxyl radical scavenging activity of butanol extract of Castanopsis sieboldii (Makino) Hatus was 76%. Therefore, with more researches on purification and identification of active compounds, plants studied are expected to be natural sources for the functional food/cosmeceuticals with anti-oxidative properties.
