This fruit is used in traditional medicine. All parts of the tree are useful: from the bark of its tree, the stems to the leaves and fruit seed. The most touted benefit, though not yet supported by scientific research on humans is that it can kill some cancerous cells without harming normal cells, unlike chemotherapy.

The fruit contains nutrients which include protein, sugar, fatty acids, dietary fiber, Vitamins C, B1, B2, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium chloride and many bioactive compounds and phytochemicals. These inherent components make it a “miracle” fruit.
