According to study, the leaf extract suppresses the growth of Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite that causes malaria, hence ingesting a leaf combination can treat malaria.
2. Treats Ulcer and Prevents Hypertension
The velvet tamarind leaf extract has the capacity to enhance gastric mucus secretion, which aids in the relief of stomach ulcers. The leaves are also diuretic, meaning they increase urine production, making it simpler for the heart to pump blood and so lowering the risk of hypertension.
3. Anti-inflammatory and Anti-microbial Properties
Vitamin C is abundant in the fruit pulp, which helps to combat microbial diseases. Bronchitis-related inflammation in the bronchial passages can be reduced by using stem bark.
4. Improves Oral hygiene and cures Toothache
The stem of the velvet tamarind is used as a chewing stick (local toothbrush). This stick contains saponin, which has a cleaning effect on the teeth while also removing plaque and cavities.
5. Reliefs Menstrual Cramp and stops Diarrhoea
Because the stem bark extract has analgesic properties, it can be used to relieve menstrual pain. To work effectively, combine it with papaya leaf, salt, and water. It can also stop diarrhoea.
