Combretum Quadrangulare (Sakae Naa) is a small tree in the Combretaceae family, that grows wildly in Thailand, and has been used as a Mitra alternative.
The Combretum quadrangulare tree is found throughout Thailand especially in open, wet places. The tree ranges between 5-10 meters high, and produces acutely quadrangular, or very narrowly quadrialate branchlets. Its leaves are acutely ridged and generally grow 3-8 cm wide, and 6-20 cm long.
The extract is used in China as herbal medicine for common colds, sore throats and mild pain relief. Independent studies have confirmed the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
