Strobilanthes crispus leafs, Black face general

Strobilanthes crispus dried leaves contained a high amount of total ash (21.6%) as a result of a high amount of minerals including potassium (51%), calcium (24%), sodium (13%), iron (1%), and phosphorus (1%). High content of water-soluble vitamins (C, B1, and B2) contributed to the high antioxidant activity of the leaves,

The leaves also contained a moderate amount of other proximate composition as well as other compounds such as catechins, alkaloids, caffeine, and tannin, contributing further to the total antioxidant activity. Catechins of Strobilanthes crispus leaves showed highest antioxidant activity when compared to Yerbamate and vitamin E.
Strobilanthes crispus has been used traditionally as antidiabetic, diuretic, antilytic, and laxative and has been proven scientifically to possess high antioxidant activity, anti-AIDS, and anticancer properties. It is commonly consumed in the form of herbal tea.

Antioxidant and polyphenol content that present in the extracts might contribute to the antihyperglycemic and antilipidemic properties.

Consumption of the leafy extract daily (5 g/day) as an herbal tea could contribute to the additional nutrients and antioxidants needed in the body to enhance the defense system, especially toward the incidence of degenerative diseases and to protect the liver against hepatocarcinogenesis

The recommended dose / day is 5 mg of dray leaves to brew in one cup of boiling water same like drinking normal tea
