In African traditional medicine the bark from the tree is used for the treatment of fever, pain and inflammation, stomach complaints and headaches.
Research at the University of Melbourne shows that the bark has strong anti- inflammatory effects. It is anti-carcinogenic and has anti- tumor properties with the potential to prevent colon cancer.
