Tree turmeric/Rasoot (رسوت) also known as Indian Barberry, Ophthalmic Barberry and Berberis Aristata, is a plant. The fruit, stems, leaves, wood, root, and root bark are used to make medicine.
People take tree turmeric for heart failure, liver disease, malaria, an eye infection called trachoma, skin diseases, heavy menstrual periods, swelling of the stomach and intestines (gastroenteritis), diarrhea, and yellowed skin (jaundice).
Tree turmeric is sometimes applied directly to the skin to treat burns and wounds.
Side effects, Precautions & Warning:
It’s UNSAFE to take tree turmeric if you are pregnant and breastfeeding because it contains a chemical called berberine. Berberine can be transferred to the infant through breast milk, and it might cause harm.
