Supplementary Material

Supplementary Material 1 shows polyphenol contents of extracts fermented by various strains. In this result, the extract fermented by Monascus purpureus had the highest polyphenol contents compared to other strains.

Supplementary Material 2 shows antioxidant activity(ABTS radical scavenging activity) of extracts fermented by various strains. In this result, the extract fermented by Monascus purpureus had the best antioxidant activity compared to other strains.

Supplementary Material 3 shows acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity of extracts fermented by various strains. The AChE inhibition activity of extract fermented by Lactobacillus brevis was the highest compared to other strains, but there was no significant differences from the extract fermented by Monascus purpureus. Therefore, in our experiment, the extract fermented by Monascus purpureus was used to investigate.
