Mist bredina

background

Members of the genus Bridelia are found throughout tropical and subtropical regions of the world, especially in Africa and Asia. Of the 60-70 members of this genus, the most commonly studied species are Bridelia ferruginea and Bridelia retusa.
Traditionally, several Bridelia species are used to treat a variety of conditions, including dysentery, hemorrhoids, hemorrhage, heavy menstrual bleeding, leukorrhea, arthritis, diabetes, wounds, ulcers, poisoning, abdominal pain, and cardiovascular and gynecological conditions, and as a contraceptive. At this time, there is a lack of high-quality human trials in support of the use of Bridelia species for any indication.
