Ethnomedical Uses: Jatobá's bark and leaves also have an ancient history of use with the indigenous tribes of the rainforest.

It was first recorded in Brazilian herbal medicine in 1930. The bark was recommended for diarrhea, dysentery, general fatigue, intestinal gas, dyspepsia, hematuria, bladder problems, and hemoptysis (coughing blood from the lungs) and also recommended for all types of upper respiratory and cardiopulmonary problems. In the mid-1960s an alcohol bark extract called Vinho de Jatobá was widely sold throughout Brazil as a tonic and fortificant, for energy, and for numerous other disorders and today still being sold throughout Brazil and macerated with Brazilian rum and several kinds of medicinal herbs, known in Brazil as "garrafada".
