Benefits Of Waru Leaves As A Traditional Medicine To Treat Several Diseases?

1 Answer:

Hello Nurling, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The waru plant or what is called Hibiscus tiliaceus is indeed used in several countries as traditional medicine. Not only the leaves, but the bark of the tree and the flowers are also used as medicine. The leaves and bark of the tree are thought to have antibacterial, anti-pain, and neurological effects (such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety, and sedatives), while the flowers are known to have antibacterial effects and can also be used as a laxative (trigger defecation). The leaves of this plant are thought to be used to relieve fever and cough, but there is no research that mentions the possible benefits of this plant for treating vomiting of blood, tonsils, hemorrhoids, or irregular menstruation.


However, existing research is only limited to looking for certain ingredients contained in this plant that have certain effects on health, but there are no studies that support its medical use, meaning that its benefits are not really known with certainty. Therefore, the use of this plant for the things you mentioned above is not recommended.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
