The plant family Melastomataceae is exclusively found in tropical and subtropical regions. Melastoma is made up of 22 species, 2 subspecies, and 3 variations, all of which may be found in Southeast Asia. There was no evidence to substantiate the claim that this plant was one of the most essential herbs in traditional Malay, Indian, and Chinese medicine. Melastoma malabathricum has a variety of pharmacological properties, including antiviral, antioxidant, hepatoprotective, wound healing, antidiareeheal, antiinlamatory, anticancer, and antidiabetic activity. Melastoma malabathricum contains phytochemicals such as naringenin, quercetin, rutin, kaempferol, and ellagic acid. Despite the fact that various bioactive chemicals from Melastoma malabathricum have been isolated and identified (as detailed in the phytochemical section), their contribution to the plant's putative therapeutic advantages or recognized pharmacological effects has not been thoroughly explored.
