Objective: To observe the health Qigong new skills on the change of radical superoxide dismutase (SOD) and malondialdehyde (MDA) of quinquagenarian. Methods: In this paper, quinquagenarian who were basically healthy but don't toe part in physical exercise in Chengdu, Sichuan Province object. The people divided into four groups according to gender and age, each group of 12 people. Before practice, took every group’s blood to tested serum SOD and MDA. Under the guidance of the instructor, the subjects practiced five sets of new health Qigong. Practice at least once a day for each set of skills. After 8 weeks practiced, took every group’s blood to tested serum the activity of SOD was measured by the xanthine oxidase method and the MDA content in the thiobarbitic acid (TBA) reaction colorimetric method. Results: 1.The activity of serum SOD: the serum SOD activity after exercise in middle men's group and middle women’s group was higher than that before exercise, but there was no significant difference (P=0.332, P=0.218). The serum SOD activity in older men's group and middle-aged women's group after exercise was significantly higher than before exercise, and there was a significant difference (P=0.001, P=0.003). 2. The content of MDA: the serum MDA activity of middle men's group, older men's group and middle women's group were decreased and there was no significant difference compared with that before exercise (P=0.088, P=0.118, P=0.145). There was a significant difference between the serum MDA content and before exercise in the elderly women group (P= 0.024). Conclusion: After 8 weeks the health Qigong new skills, which can improve the serum SOD activity and reduce MDA content in serum and reduce the degree of lipid peroxidation. Prompt accurate grasp of the action essentials and a long and serious exercise in the health Qigong new skills is good for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in the elderly and the process of slowing down the aging process
