The method of making effervescent granule supplementation is by using infusa (decoction) from a lyophilized kasumba flower with Freeze Dryer and formulated with a combination of citric acid and sodium bicarbonate 1: 1.5. Effervescent granule preparationss were evaluated by LOD, MC, compressibility, species weight and pH test to obtain a qualified preparation and antioxidant analysis by DPPH method. Based on the evaluation of the preparation, it is found that the effervescent kasumba turate granule fulfill the applicable requirements: acid granules obtained% MC and% LOD 0.5% and 0.5%, basic granule% MC and% LOD 0.7%, 0.77%, flow properties break 27o, and flow rate 9.7 g/s),% compressibility 16% and weight type 1.66, pH of the preparation 7. The effervescent lyophilisate preparation of kasumba turate becomes an effective supplement in enhancing the immune system and as an antioxidant for all age.
