It is popular in Indigenous System of Medicine like Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathy. In the Traditional System of Medicine, various plant parts such as bark, root, leaves, fruits and latex are used in dysentery, diarrhoea, diabetes, bilious affections, stomachache, menorrhage, haemoptysis, piles and as carminative and astringent. The present review is therefore, an effort to give a detailed survey of the literature on its pharmacognosy, phytochemistry, traditional and pharmacological uses.
