Turmeric (Curcuma domestica Val.) and tamarind are herbal ingredients that are widely used in traditional medicine. The study was conducted to determine the effect of continuous supplementation of turmeric extract and tamarind fruit on kidney performance. The experimental design used was a completely randomized design (CRD), with four treatments and five replications. The treatments consisted of: control, 2% water extract concentration of turmeric rhizome, 2% tamarind fruit water extract, 2% water extract mixture of turmeric rhizome and tamarind. The experimental units were 20 with 10 experimental animals in each experimental unit. There were 200 experimental animals were used. Renal histology was prepared using the paraffin method, and serum creatinine levels were tested by the spectophotometric method. Qualitative data was presented in images, and quantitative data is analyzed using the SPSS for window program The results showed that broiler serum creatinine levels were not significantly different between control and treatment. Kidney histology data showed no significant difference between the histology of the control kidney and the broiler kidney supplemented by water extract of turmeric rhizome and tamarind fruit. Water extract supplementation of turmeric and tamarind fruit 2% did not have a negative effect on kidney performance and serum creatinine level.
