Ubos is a tropical fruit tree that grows in the Amazon. Every part of the plant, from bark to leaves to flowers offers medicinal purposes. The plant exhibits antibacterial and antiviral properties. The bark contains potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic ingredients. Native healers use this plant to treat arthritis, rheumatism and skin rashes. In South American herbal medicine systems as well as in other parts of the world ubos leaves are widely used for female reproductive tracts issues. It is a common midwife's remedy to help induce labor, reduce bleeding and pain during and after childbirth, to bring on the flow of breast milk, and as a vaginal wash to prevent or treat uterine or vaginal infections after childbirth.
