Abstract—In recent years many studies revealed that fruits contain high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. South Kalimantan Indonesia is a tropical country that has a variety of fruits that are consumed for food and health. The present study was aimed to evaluate the in vitro anti inflammation activity of Annona muricata, Averrhoa carambola and Ananas comosus merr. The anti-inflammatory activities was determined by inhibition protein denaturation method. Result of this study revealed there is inhibitory action on protein denaturation. Averrhoa carambola extract has shown better inhibition of BSA denaturation at any concentration compared to Annona muricata and Ananas comosus merr extract. Our investigation suggest that the Annona muricata, Averrhoa carambola, and Ananas comosus merr extracts possess significant anti-inflammatory activity. Among them Averrhoa carambola extract was found to be more potent than the Anona muricata and Ananas comosus merr extract.

Index Terms—ananas comosus merr, annona muricata, anti-inflammation activity, averrhoa carambola
