Excoecaria agallocha is a mangrove plant used in traditional medicines for curing a wide variety of diseases. Research on the effect of the extracts on different organisms has yielded varying results. It was understood from literature studies that the extracts have wonderful healing effects and are used against many human disease conditions.
