Nutrition has been reported to have a huge role in maintaining the lipid in the blood. Xanthone is a very powerful antioxidant which can reduce the lipid in the blood. Xanthones, terpenoids and sugars have been reported can be found in the different parts (pericarp, whole fruit, bark, and leaves) of mangosteen and some of them have shown a variety of biological activities. Therefore, a study was conducted to evaluate the effect of mangosteen peel extract (Garcinia mangostana L.) on blood triglyceride and glucose of Sentul chicken growth phase. A total of 100 Sentul chickens (10 weeks old) were used in this study. The research used an experimental method with a completely randomized design (CRD). The chickens were randomly assigned into four treatment groups of P0, P1, P2 and P3, replicated 5 times of 5 chickens each. The blood taken at the end of experiment. The chickens in the first group (P0) were given basal feed without mangosteen peel extract, while P1, adding with 41 mL/kg ration; P2 = 81 mL/kg ration, and P3 = 122 mL/kg ration. There was a significant (p<0.05) reduction in triglyceride blood level of Sentul Chicken compared to without supplementation, and highest reduction in group fed P3. The blood glucose was non-significant difference. Addition of mangosteen extract peel in diet of Sentul chicken had beneficial effect in reducing the blood triglyceride and the level of blood glucose is almost the same.
