Xanthine oxidase (XO) inhibitors were isolated from the rhizomes of Alpinia galanga (Zingiberaceae), and were identified as trans-p-coumaryl diacetate (1), trans-coniferyl diacetate (2), [1'S]-1'-acetoxychavicol acetate (3), [1'S]-1'-acetoxyeugenol acetate (4) and 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (5). The type of inhibition by either 1 or 3 with respect to xanthine as a substrate was uncompetitive.
