The antiurolithic activity of the stem-bark is attributed to the presence of lupeol. Lupeol not only prevented the formation of vesical calculi, but also reduced the size of the preformed stones in the kidneys of calculogenic rats. It also reversed the biochemical parameters in urine, blood and serum towards normal.
The stem bark also exhibit anti-inflammatory activity, and is reported to stimulate bile secretion, appetite and bowel movement.
