Utilization of plants as traditional medicine is considered safer compared to synthetic drugs. The writing of this article aims to reveal the bioactivity of Numteg which is based on literature review on line and off line. In ethnobotany, numteg is used as a cholesterol, prodisiac, hepatoprotective drug. Numteg's bioactivity functions as an antimicrobial, aphrosidiac, anti-depressant, analgesic, anti-cancer, and anticolytic agent. The use of numteg as aprosidiak needs to be studied further so as to improve its function as a standardized or phytochemical herbal Keywords: Myristica fragrans, aphrosidiac, anti-depressant
