The medicinal properties of these species are due to the presence of lignans, flavonoids, tannins, alkaloids, and terpenoids. Phyllanthin and hypophyllanthin are the major lignans from Phyllanthus species having estrogenic properties that reduces toxicity, vascular tension, and protect hepatocytes.
