This plant contains flavonoids, triterpenoids, glycosides, saponins, carotenoids, volatile oil, amino acids, steroids, sterols, and quinines. These chemical constituents confer multifaceted biological effects such as anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antihelminthic, antidiabetes, wound healing, hepatoprotective, and antioxidant activities. Additionally, it is employed in cases of certain burns and gastrointestinal, gynecological, ocular, and skin conditions.``
``The use of traditional medicine was found to be first implemented in Ancient Greece. According to Greek traditional knowledge, gods gave the knowledge of healing to man. Theophrastus (372–286 BC), a disciple of Aristotle, an ancient Greek philosopher, and a scientist, authored the first scientific system of plants . Although not wholly aware of their exact physicochemical characteristics at the time, the human population has found additional health benefits from plants throughout history. The same components from plant sources that have a long medicinal history and are proven effective in the welfare of human health are indicated within traditional medicine. This traditional medicinal knowledge and colonial expansion through the progress of communication mediums have been transferred over the generations [1,2]. Currently, traditional medicines are becoming more popular for therapeutic use, specifically for self-treatment practices [3,4,5].``
