Sesbania is a Leguminosae genus that is widely utilized in tropical and subtropical areas, particularly in Southeast Asia. Other species are used less frequently than Sesbania grandiflora and Sesbania sesban. Sesbania also possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-uriolytic, lipid-lowering, anticarcinogenic, analgesic, and cardioprotective properties. Saponins, tannins, alkaloids, phenolic compounds, flavonoids, and 3--D-glucuronide oleanolic acid make up the chemical makeup of this plant, as stated. Sesbania protects against sixteen pathogens. The cuisine of Sesbania is well-known. Sesbania species have various economic demands, such as plants, diseases, and economic visitors to crops, in addition to these. Traditional medicine uses all parts of the Sesbania grandiflora plant, and phytochemical study using the outer portions of the leaves, seeds, and roots of Sesbania grandiflora provides scientific evidence for its components. Sesbania leaves are used as a laxative, calming, anthelmintic, and anti-inflammatory.
