A member of the Fabaceae family and the black siris of the Mimosaceae subfamily, Albizia odoratissima Benth (L.F.) is regarded as one of the top nitrogen-fixing trees and is widely cultivated in China, India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. Several diseases and conditions have been treated using Albizia odoratissima Benth (L.F.) It has been used in many diseases and several activities including antidiabetic activity. Among All the species of Albizia, Albizia odoratissima has good antidiabetic activity. Traditionally the different parts of plants have to cure treatments for Diabetes, Asthma, Leprosy, Bronchitis, Cough, Skin Diseases and Inflammatory pathologies such as burns, ulcers etc. Different prepared extracts of these plants and their parts have been reported for various pharmacological activities like Antidiabetic, Antioxidant, Antimicrobial, Anti-inflammatory, etc. The goal of the present review study is to provide a Pharmacognostical description, Pharmacological Activities, Therapeutic importance, and uses.
