The use of water as a solvent extract because the sample is food, While ethanol is also used because ethanol is not toxic and the compounds present in black rice are also polar so polar that they can be used in dissolving polar and semi-polar compounds. Each extract was measured levels of phenol, antioxidant activity and its effects on lymphocyte proliferation (as an organ where immune cells produced). The treatment was health control, pain control, 50,100 and 200µg/ml. The results showed that ethanol extract of black rice and water containing phenol compound and has activity as an antioxidant, it also very potential as immunomodulators because the extract can increase lymphocyte proliferation
