This study aims to determine the antioxidant activity of eel (Monopterus albus) extracts that live in the waters of the province of Jambi. Free radicals tend to cause chain reactions that occur in the body and will cause ongoing and continuous cell damage, especially in chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. Prevention can be done by providing antioxidants, one of which is amino acids. In the Koran, it is stated that the carcasses that are lawful to eat are fish and grasshoppers. Eel is a type of fish that has a high albumin content. The eel meat sample that has been filled and given from its head, is cut into small pieces with a size of 1.5 cm2 and wrapped in a thin cloth in a container, then steamed, pressed, and centrifuged. the air and oil phases are taken and the impurities are removed by filtering, then they are dried using freeze drying in order to obtain the eel extract in powder form. The method used in this study is the Radical Scavenging Method using the chemical compound DPPH (2,2- diphenyl-1-pikrilhidrazil). From the research results it was found that the IC50 value of eel extract was 29.0816 ppm. Eel extract has the potential to ward off free radicals with strong activity.
