What component of carmona retusa cures stomach ache gastroenteritis and cavities?

Phytochemical screening yielded alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, tannins, terpenoids, and saponins.

Major constituents of leaves yielded an intractable mixture of triterpenes, namely a-amyrin, b-amyrin, and baurenol.

Laboratory tests and evaluations, using white mice, show that with dosages of 100mg and 250mg/kg of mice, tritepenes exhibited 29% to 55% anti – diarrheal activity or effectiveness. Tests further show that at a dosage of 100mg, there is no significant difference between the effectiveness of immodium (commercially known available drug) and triterpenes to diarrhea.
