Studies of the Chigomier plant have revealed significant properties. The plant is highly valued in traditional medicine. An infusion of the leaves is very popular to promote healthy respiratory tract. The Maninka tribe called it Jambakatan which means “the leaf which does not deceive.” They take a leaf decoction in baths and by draught against fatigue and to promote healthy pregnancy.* Chigomier is distributed throughout the Sahel belt from Senegal to Cameroon, and eastwards to the Sudan. It is particularly resistant to the arid conditions, surviving where grasses will not, and it recovers quickly from burning. It often grows gregariously on sandy and degraded soils.
