Treatment efforts with traditional medicines are one form of community participation and at the same time are appropriate simple technologies that have the potential to support health development. This is caused partly because traditional medicine has been used by the community since time immemorial. Traditional medicine, besides being very beneficial to health, also has no harmful side effects because it can be digested by the body. Research Objectives: Aims to determine the identification of Cyclotetracosane compounds in Golobe marbles fruit methanol extract (Etlingera alba (Blume) A.D Poulsen). Type of Research: An Experimental Research. Where Golobe Fruit is Marbles (Etlingera alba (Blume) A.D Poulsen) is taken in the morning washed and then dried after being crushed dry so that it becomes powder. The powder was macerated with methanol solvent and then evaporated and obtained by Golobe Fruit Thick Methanol Extract. Furthermore, the thick extract of Golobe Fruit Methanol was tested using GC- MS (Gass Chromatography Mass Spectrometry). The results of the study: The results showed that Golobe fruit marbles (Etlingera alba (Blume) A.D Poulsen) contained Cyclotetracosane compounds of 1.68%. Conclusion: Based on the results of the study using GC-MS that Cyclotetracosane compounds contained in Golobe Fruit Extract function as antioxidants and antifungals. Key words: Anthropometric Indices, Dyslipidemia, Incidence, Cohort Study, Iran.
