Abstract

Acalypha indica (AI) atau yang dikenal dengan nama daun anting-anting telah lama digunakan masyarakat Indonesia sebagai obat tradisional. Pemanfaatan tumbuhan sebagai obat tradisional berhubungan dengan kandungan metabolit sekunder dan bioaktivitasnya. Penulisan artikel ini didasarkan pada kajian literatur yang diperoleh dari jurnal ilmiah yang terbit secara online maupun offline, sehingga diperoleh informasi yang komprehensif mengenai bioaktivitas AI. Sebagai obat  tradisional AI digunakan untuk obat kolesterol dan rematik. Kandungan metabolit sekunder AI berupa saponin, flavonoid, steroid, fenol, alkaloid, tanin, dan glikosida jantung. Bioaktivitas AI antara lain: anti mikroba, antioksidan, anti diabetes melitus, anti kanker, anti stroke dan meningkatkan kualitas sperma. Aktivitas anti mikroba AI berhubungan dengan kandungan flavonoid dan alkaloid. Mikroba merupakan salah satu penyebab keracunan makanan, oleh karena itu bioaktivitasnya AI sebagai anti mikroba berpotensi sebagai pengawet makanan.
