Cassia alata, also referred to locally as Ketepeng Cina in Indonesia and Gelenggang in Malaysia, has been used traditionally to cure a variety of illnesses, particularly skin conditions. Additionally, C. alata may have anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer, antidiabetic, and antifungal properties. Flavones, flavonols, flavonoids glycosides, alatinon, alanonal, and -sitosterol-D-glucoside are among the metabolite substances that have been identified from C. alata. The chemicals were primarily extracted from the leaves. Additional identification is required to find the secondary metabolites from other plant components, including as the seed, flower, and bark, which are said to have strong antibacterial and antifungal action.
