This study was designed to investigate effective preprocess methods for the antioxidant activity of Lycopus lucidus Trucz tubers extract. Lycopus lucidus Trucz tubers (LlTT) were treated with D (Dried), SD (Steamed and Dried), ASD (Alcohol-Steamed and Dried), DR (Dried and Roasted), SDR (Steamed, Dried and Roasted), and ASDR (Alcohol-Steamed, Dried and Roasted). Solid content was high in Lycopus lucidus Trucs tubers, which were roasted after drying (especially SDR, ASDR). Total sugar and reducing sugar contents were high in roasted ones. Total polyphenol and flavonoid contents were high upon alcohol-steaming in both the dried and roasted groups. Antioxidant activities of LlTT extracts showed effective nitrate scavenging ability, ABTs radical scavenging ability, Xanthine oxidase inhibitory activity, and DPPH radical scavenging ability. As a result, roasting or steaming process (especially using alcohol) can be helpful to obtain the highly antioxidative extract of Lycopus lucidus Trucs tubers.
