Cassia alata - Wild senna The antimicrobial activity of Cassia alata extracts has been investigated against S.aureus, S.aureus coagulase positive, B.subtilis,B. cereus B.stearothermophillus, E.coli, V.cholerae, S.typhi, S.dysenteriae and K.pneumoniae.
The acetone and ethanol extracts showed high activity against nearly all test microorganisms.
The inhibitory effects are very close and identical in magnitude and comparable with that of standard antibiotics (Miconazole), when used.
The therapeutic efficacy of Cassia alata leaf extract against Pityriasis versicolor (a skin fungus, aka Tinea versicolor) has been reported. The leaf extract can be reliably used as an herbal medicine to treat this type of fungus. It has no side-effects.
It is also effective against infections caused by these fungi: Candida albicans, Trichophyton mentagrophyte and Aspergillus niger.
The phyto-chemical adenine, in the leaves has been documented as an effective platelet aggregating inhibitor (reduces sticky blood and arterial plaque).
Senna, like most Cassia species, contains a group of phyto-chemicals named anthraquinones; they are known for the laxative effect.
