Over the course of many years, various parts of Ziziphus mauritiana has been found to possess hair growth stimulating, anti-platelet aggregating, anti-inflammation, wound-healing, anti-obesity, antibacterial, and antioxidant effects. Various peer-reviewed research articles were collected from SCOPUS, PubMed, Google, Research Gate, and Web of Science databases. A total of 26 papers were selected based on their relevance. Acetyljujuboside B, Mauritine A, and Jujuboside A are some of the numerous chemical constituents present in Ziziphus mauritiana.
