Many phyto-chemicals such as flavonoid and glycoside found in its composition have been reported to accelerate wound healing through anti-oxidant and anti-microbial activities and lead to positive outcomes with regard to wound contraction ability, wound closure time, epithelization process, tensile strength of the wound and the wound healing rate.
