[Article in Chinese]


H2O2 was used to induce lipid peroxidation of RBC membrane in rats to observe the protective action of different ingredients of LbL and betaine on the membrane. The result shows these ingredients cna inhibit the lipid peroxidation of RBC membrane in the following order of antioxidizing power: Fructus Lycii.LbL.dry(FL/LbL.dry) > Polysaccharide FL/LbL > Residue FL/LbL > betaine.
