It is used in anti-inflammative, anti-oxidant and detoxifying compositions. It is used in mouth care for its efficacy against Staphylococcus mutans and other oral pathogens. Studies have been conducted showing the whole spice’s liver protective qualities (whether these apply to the extract is not ascertained).
