Leaf pedada extracted using 96% methanol by maceration. This study is a completely randomized design (CRD), which consists of 5 treatments and 5 replicates the normal group (distilled water), positive group (Simvastatin), a group of leaf pedada extract at a dose of 125, 250 and 500 mg / kg. The extract was dissolved using Carboxy Methyl Cellulose (CMC) 0.5% and given orally in mice which had previously been given a high cholesterol feed. The results showed the methanol extract of leaves cemba with the dose of 500 mg/kg hads the highest effectiveness in lowering total cholesterol levels in mice which have hypercholesterolemia with a 30,20 % percentage drop. These results indicate that of the giving leaf extract pedada (Sonneratia caseolaris) able to lower total cholesterol levels of mice (Mus musculus) male hypercholesterolaemia.
