Antioxidant activities of methanol extracts from sarcocarp and seed of Zizyphus jujuba var. inermis Rehder were investigated in vitro. Contents of total polyphenols in methanol extracts from sarcocarp and seed were 98.83, 138.99 µg/mg, respectively. Radical-scavenging activities of methanol extracts were examined using α,α-diphenyl-β-picrylhydrazyl and 2,2'-azinobis( 3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) radicals, and hydrogen peroxide assay. Inhibition effects of methanol extracts on peroxidation of linoleic acid were examined by ferric thiocyanate and thiobarbituric acid methods. Both sarcocarp and seed of Zizyphus jujuba var. inermis Rehder showed relatively high antioxidant activities in various systems.
