To determine fusion-complex activity of Camellia extract extracted hot water, this study was conducted. Special catechin was identified at this extract by analysis of catechin. In analysis of antioxidant activity, the extract was contained antioxidant material and flower among the other parts showed high antioxidant activity. flavonoid showed most high content of Camellia. Flavonoid content was found to be $223.29{\pm}0.005mg/g$ to measured most high to stem, a control group was measured Green tea new leaves $126.14{\pm}0.005mg/g$. Total polyphenol content exhibited most high content at new leaves and flavonoid showed most high content at stem. ${\gamma}$-Amino butyric acid (GAVA) among the free amino acid showed highly at all parts.
