Decreasing intestinal toxins through antimicrobial activity.

Not only does A. crassna have a laxative effect, it also decreases the intestinal toxins (for example, ammonium and indole) in putrefaction mice that are on high-protein, high-fat diets.A. crassna’s water extract (95 °C) and 60% ethanol extract reduced indole in feces, but only the water extract decreased ammonium in feces (Kakino et al. 2012). In addition, A. crassna displayed antibacterial activity(Mohamed 2016). In short, consuming Aquilaria leaves could help you decrease unwanted toxins in your body.
