To detect the antioxidant activity of Schisandra Chinensis Extract juice and seed extract, and determine 

the main effective components in them. Scavenging DPPH free radical and reducing power method were used to 

determine the antioxidant activity of Schisandra Chinensis Extract juice and seed extract. 


Three lignans of schisandrin, deoxyschisandrin, schisandrin were detected by HPLC. The content of total 

phenolics was detected by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. The results showed that Schisandra Chinensis 

Extract juice and seed extract had antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activity of seed extract was higher 

than juice. The total phenolic content of juice and seed extract were 0.21 % and1.74 %. Deoxyschisandrin and 

schisandrin were not deteced in Schisandra Chinensis Extract juice. Schisandrin was deteced in Schisandra 

Chinensis Extract juice with the content of 0.20 %. The content of schisandrin, deoxyschisandrin and 

schisandrin in seed extract were 2.79 %, 0.45 % and 3.09 %. It was proved that lignans were the major
