Allium sativum and A.calamus are weak antioxidants as having IC50 in the range of 250-500 ppm, while the C. mangga and a mixture of those have strong antioxidant content as having IC50 of less than 50 ppm. Allegedly due to the high antioxidant content of the content of steroids, phenols, tannins, flavonoids, glycosides, diterpene, triterpenes, and alcaloids in A. calamus, also contains steroids, flavonoids, glycosides, diterpene, triterpenes and alaloids on A. sativum and also the presence of terpenoids as compound intersection primary contained in C. mangga respectively.
