The control group was fed with a standard food while the treatment group was given Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (bakau) fruit extract at a dose of 5.000 mg/kg BB. After 24 hours, two groups were observed by calculating the number of the dead rats, if there was no dead rat, they were sacrificed for an autopsy for liver histopathological examination. The result of this research showed there was no dead rat during the treatment process . Histopathological examination of rat liver cells showed no necrosis, degeneration, inflammation, fibrosis, and cirrhosis. Conclusion of this research was Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (bakau) fruit had no toxic effects and could be clasified as “Practical Not Toxic” in Loomis criteria .
