The aqueous extracts from the flowers, having a weak alkaline reaction, tampon excess stomach acidity. The use of bark, empirically used in gastric hyperacidity, in gastric and duodenal ulcers and as a purgative, does not yet have sufficient scientific substantiation.
Flowers are recommended as a neutralizer of gastric acid indicated in some teas for calming the cough.
