Abstract

Results regarding the anti-oxidative, anti-allergic, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer effects of lotus leaf and dandelion have been reported through active research on the medical effects of medicine prepared from crude drugs. This paper aimed to examine the anti-bacterial effect of lotus leaf and dandelion extracts on S. mutans by evaluating the colony forming unit and growth curve. In accordance with the growth inhibition rate of S. mutans according to the addition of lotus leaf and dandelion extracts, the higher the extract concentration was, the higher the growth inhibition rate of S. mutans was. This paper therefore verifies that lotus leaf and dandelion extracts have an effect in inhibiting the growth of S. mutans.
