Abstract
Objectives: This study estimated antioxidant effects of the moxi with ginger tar (MGT) ; chemical combustion products produced by moxibustion with ginger during combustion.

Methods: To do this aim, we investigated total polyphenol and flavonoid contents, SOD (superoxide dismutase) scavenging activity, ABTS (2.2-azino-bis-3-erthylbenzo-thiazoline-6- sulfonic acid) & DPPH(2,2-Dipheny1-1 -picryl-hydrazyl) radical’s scavenging ability of MGT.

Results: Total polyphenol contents of MGT was 7.8±0.09 mg/g in 10 mg/ml, SOD activity was 42.51±3.39% in 200 ug/ml, DPPH radical scavenging effect of MGT was 83.24±0.01% in 200 ug/ml and ABTS radical scavenging effect was 41.88±0.16% in 200 ug/ml.

Conclusions: In this study, the effects of moxi with ginger could be induced by not only heating stimulus on acupoints but also chemical stimulus produced during combustion of moxibustion, MGF. The advanced study about biological mechanism through meridian system, skin aging, and inflammation on MGT will be required.
