Overview

Overview Information

Stereospermum is a large tree that grows in India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. Most research about stereospermum has focused on the bark and its potential effects.

People take stereospermum by mouth for indigestion, hiccups, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, fever, diabetes, liver disorders, and asthma.

People apply stereospermum to the skin to heal wounds.

How does it work?

Stereospermum might lower blood sugar and cholesterol, reduce pain, reduce swelling, lower fevers, and protect the liver from toxins. It might also protect the brain from damage caused by reduced blood flow or conditions such as Parkinson's disease. Stereospermum seems to have antioxidant effects.
