Physiological activities of Allium tuberosum and Allium senescens were examined. Nitrite-scavenging activity, superoxide dismutase (SOD)-like activity and electron-donating ability (EDA) of leeks extracted with water, 50%, and 100% ethanol were measured. Nitrite-scavenging activities at pH 1.2 were most effective in water and 50% ethanol extracts from both samples. SOD-like activities of water and 50% ethanol extracts of both samples were $18.21{\sim}36.33%$ lower than those of 1 and 0.1% L-ascorbate solutions. SOD-like activities of A. tuberosum extracts were higher than those of A. senescens extracts, and water extracts of samples were the highest. EDAs of A. tuberosum extracts were higher ($30.59{\sim}49.68%$) than those of A. senescens extracts, while those of both extracts were lower than 1 and 0.1% L-ascorbate solutions. The results will be useful for understanding the physiological activities of leek extracts.
