Degenerative disease has caused the highest mortality in the world. The disease may occur due to our life style which prefer fast food than traditional one and overeating resulted in hyperlipidemic. This condition will increase lipid peroxidation caused by free radicals in the body such as in the liver. The objective of this research is to determine the influence of hypolipidemic substance on lipid peroxide in the liver of hyperlipidemic rabbits. Twenty four male New Zealand White rabbits were divided into four group: group I (normal), group II (Hyperlipidemic), group III (mixture of Jati Belanda), and group IV (lovastatin). Lipid peroxide concentration was measured by TBA (thiobarbiturit acid) assay that measure malondyaldehida (MDA) as product of lipid peroxidation using spectrophotometer at λ = 532 nm (Yagi et al 1994). The result of the research showed that feeding rabbits with chow contains 0.5% cholesterol and 5% of palm oil caused hyperlipidemic. Lipid peroxide concentration of rabbit’s liver in group II increased two times compared with group I. Group III and IV had lower lipid peroxide concentration of rabbit’s liver compared with group II which is 58.83% and 49.06%. This data showed that Jati Belanda leave mixture and lovastatin decreased lipid peroxidation in the liver.
