Anxiety & insomnia
The leaves of Cassia Siamea have been used in Thai and Burmese cooking for generations. The active compound is called Barakol, and has a relaxing effect. There are reports of muscle relaxant action similar to benzodiazepam. Muscular convulsions are calmed, as the effect allows the smooth muscle fiber to close. Cassia Siamea functions as an excellent tranquillizer and has also been described as an anxiolytic (anti anxiety agent). Furthermore, it has some analgesic (pain killing) and diuretic (promoting the removal of excess fluid) properties.
Cassia Siamea is deemed to be a safe product, particularly when it is used in its natural form (not denaturalized) and is taken in an alcohol dilution. According to some experts can Cassia Siamea in powder form be a good alternative for hyperactive children. Some parents may prefer natural remedies before they give their children heavy pharmaceutical chemicals.
Several studies confirm that Cassia Siamea lowers blood pressure and blood glucose. It is also a very potent anti-oxidant action and helped to prevent cell damage due to free radicals.
