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.

Yes, the leaves of ficus turn as your photograph and even paintings are done on these dried leaves. your logic for ficus acting on veins, in addition to the property of its fibrous nature may be reason of its importance in hemorrhages.

Thank you Dr Mas for taking me to the nostalgic school days. I used to keep ficus leaves inside my text books. One day, my class teacher punished me for misusing the pages of text book. My hobby stopped for ever!

I heard that if you put leaves of Ficus Religiosa in a book for few months then part of the chlorophyl brittle off and venation is visible that looks beautiful appearance. Might be that is the reason that it act on blood vains.
