Carissa carendas called Karanda are used in many traditional systems Unani, Ayurveda, homeopathic systems. Traditionally various herbal drugs used in curing many diseases are used singly or in a combination of another herbal drugs. Carissa carendas is all part of plant-like fruit, root, leaves all parts is used to treat many diseases traditionally.

The leaf part is used as Analgesic and antipyretic, anticonvulsant, anti- asthmatic, anti-arthritis, antihyperlipidemic, antioxidant, anti-hepatoprotective, antioxidant properties. A higher gross heat value of this species indicates its higher potential to be used as a good fuel source. The conclusion showed that the leaf part of the extract exhibited the highest antioxidant activity and total phenolic content. So in the future, many, more diseases control by the extract of leaf part of Carisa calendars plant-like wound healing activity, etc.
