Hi here's the medicinal purposes of this commonly seen shrub along the way to Chek Jawa.
If you have'nt noticed this plant, you can check the modified leaf bracts for the carefully hidden flowers and fruits.

In the Philippines a decoction / infusion of the leaves and flowers is prescribed by "curanderos" against tuberculosis.
