It can be prevented by identifying the determinants of self-medication. </em></p> <p><em><strong>Methods: </strong></em><em>This study is a cross-sectional quantitative analytic study. A sample of 150 mothers was choosen by purposive sampling with the criteria for breastfeeding a baby with a maximum age of 6 months. The instrument used is a questionnaire on the determinants of self-medication behavior in breastfeeding mothers. The questionnaire has been tested for validity with Pearson's test (p &lt; 0.05) and reliability with Chronbach's alpha (0.78). Data analysis with chi-square and multivariate tests</em></p> <p><em><strong>Results:</strong></em><em> The statistical analysis showed a significant association between education level, medical history, drug price, and information media and self-medication behavior in breastfeeding mothers. However, those that had an impact were the history of the disease (p = 0.014), education level (p = 0.024), and drug price (p = 0.006). </em></p> <p><em><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The determinants of self-medication behavior in breastfeeding mothers were disease history, drug prices, and education. Further research is needed regarding the rationality of self-medication to determine the optimization and safety of drugs used by breastfeeding mothers.</em></p> Murwati Murwati, Suroso Suroso, Nur Atikah Copyright (c) 2022 Interest : Jurnal Ilmu Kesehatan Fri, 18 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0700 Formulation Functional Powder Drink Of Avocado (Persea americana Mill.) Seed And Star Anise (Illicum verum Hook.f.) <p><em><strong>Background:</strong></em><em> Production of avocados in Central Java has increased every year, and products from seeds that have not been utilized optimally will be produced. Processing avocado seeds is very necessary so that they become foods that have a high selling value while maintaining the content of antioxidant compounds contained therein. One way to optimize is to make avocado seed powder that can be processed into a functional powder drink.<strong> </strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>Methods: </strong></em><em>The method</em><em> and the type of research conducted quantitatively using a descriptive design. Parameter tests include quality tests, flavonoid qualitative tests with color reaction tests, flavonoid quantitative tests, and antioxidant activity tests using a UV-Vis spectrophotometer. </em></p> <p><em><strong> Results: </strong></em><em>Quality tests show that the functional powder drink has a smooth texture, a whitish brown color, a distinctive smell, and a sweet taste. The pH was 6,599±0,038, 6,699±0,017, and 6,741±0,030. A qualitative test of flavonoids shows positive results, followed by a quantitative test of flavonoids obtained flavonoid levels of 12,044±0,009428%, 12,214±0,009428%, and 12,419±0,009428%. Antioxidant test results for functional drinks showed an IC<sub>50</sub> value of 128,422 ± 0.0094 mg/L </em> <em>categorized as a moderate level of antioxidants.</em></p> <p><em><strong> Conclusion:</strong> The organoleptic test of functional powder drinks of avocado (Persea americana Mill.) seed and star anise (Illicum verum Hook f.) revealed a whitish chocolate color, typical spice smell, typical spice and sweet taste, and a fine powder texture.</em></p> Rini Tri Hastuti, Arum Dwi Agustin, Dewi Wulan Dari Copyright (c) 2022 Interest : Jurnal Ilmu Kesehatan Mon, 21 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0700
