A study shows that the leaves of Ficus religiosa shows significant antioxidant, wound healing and anti-inflammatory activity with a strong antibacterial activity.

Another study done with methanolic extract of figs had anticonvulsant activity against MES and picrotoxin induced convulsions, with no neurotoxic effect, in a dose dependent manner. There was inhibition of the anticonvulsant effect of extract by cyproheptadine which substantiates the involvement of serotonergic pathways for the anticonvulsant activity of extract.

Prooving of Ficus Religiosa.
Dr. Sarat Chandra Ghose of Midnapore, his wife & a dog were first proover. The dog which was perfectly strong & healthy, received 40 drops of the tincture one morning. No result followed that day & dose was repeated next morning and the animal commenced and continued to vomit blood of a bright red colour.
It kept very quiet and was unwilling to move. After three doses of 5 drops of tincture given in quick succession, the vomiting ceased. It is remarkable that the same treatment (minute doses of the same remaedy) was effectual in arresting the effect of the drug in the other two proving.
Mrs. G. took the tincture in 20 drops doses repeatedly throughout two days. On the third day dysentery and menorrhagia set in simultaneously. The blood was bright red.
Other symptoms were: Headache, very weak & restless, sight dim, burning at the top of head. The face became yellowish, breathing difficult. She became sad & melancholy, With the profuse dishcharge of bright red blood there were bearing down pains in lower abdomen.
Dr.G. took 40 drops in one dose. The result was frequent desire to pass water , which gradually became bloody & contained much blood. Then inclination to cough, causing him to spit blood. Slight headache, giddiness and nausea. Slight dim. Very weak and restless. The tincture was taken three drops every two hours and after the third dose the symptoms vanished.
