Polysaccharides from cultivated Saussurea involucrata (CSIP) were purified, two major fractions (CSIP1-2 and CSIP2-3) were investigated for their molecular weights, monosaccharide compositions and in vitro antioxidant activities. The results suggested that the molecular weights of CSIP1-2 and CSIP2-3 were approximately 163.5kDa and 88.6kDa, respectively. CSIP1-2 was composed of glucose, galactose, xylose, rhamnose, arabinose and galacturonic acid with a molar ratio of 1.651:0.39:0.062:8.331:1.759:40.426. CSIP2-3 was composed of glucose, galactose, xylose, rhamnose, arabinose and galacturonic acid with a molar ratio of 0.762:0.657:0.112:5.587:0.318:44.655. Different scavenging activities on superoxide radical, DPPH radical and hydroxyl radical were observed in CSIP1-2 and CSIP2-3 at tested concentrations.
