Dec 07, Abstract Recent resurgence on natural dye production and application is observed due to increasing popularity of more natural lifestyle based on naturally sustainable goods. Natural dyes from flora and fauna are viable alternatives to synthetic dyes. Studies shows that Talisay Terminalia catappa leaves are good sources of natural colorant producing green, yellow and black pigments, depending on the freshness of the leaves. To compete with the synthetic dyesavailability and storage stability of the natural colorants are desired.

Leaf stalks are short and stout. Flowers are white, small, and borne on spikes in the axils of the leaves, 6 to 18 centimeters long.
Fruit is smooth and ellipsoid, 3 to 6 centimeters long, and prominently bi-ridged or keeled down to the sides. Pericarp is fibrous and fleshy, the endocarp hard. Distribution - Found throughout the Philippines along seashores. Constituents - Seed contains See study below 16 - Classified in the oleic-linoleic acid group, oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic up to Main constituents were Z -phytol Uses - Kernels are edible, with a sweet-acidic pericarp.
Folkloric - Red leaves are used to expel worms. In South America, young leaves used to treat colic. Red leaves used as vermifuge.
Leaves rubbed on breasts to relieve pain. Used as mild laxative and as galactagogue for women. Fruits and roots used for tanning leather and provides an ink and black dye for dyeing cotton and rattan.
Foliage used as feed for silkworms; also as animal feed. Tree provides red, cross-grained, good quality timber. Used for construction of boats, bridges, crates, planks, water troughs, etc.
Trunk is a source of gum. Study of leaf extracts of TC and an isolated antioxidant, corilagin, was found to provide hepatoprotection in experimentally induced liver injury through suppression of oxidative stress and apoptosis.
Topical application of ethanol and chloroform extracts of leaves in induced acute and chronic ear edema in mice showed reduced inflammation. Study of the methanolic extracts of leaves of Eucalyptus camaldulensis and Terminalia catappa showed inhibitory activity on B subtilis and S aureus.
Phytochemical analysis yielded saponin, saponin glycosides, steroid, cardiac glycoside, tannins, volatile oils, phenols and balsam gum. Study showed extract of TC leaves exerted an inhibitory effect on invasion and motility of highly metastatic lung carcinoma cells.
It suggests TCE could be a potential antimetastatic agent.
Study of the leaf extract of TC concludes that it is useful as an analgesic, supporting it folkloric use in Sri Lanka. Squalene was identified from freeze-dried abscisic leaf extract of TC. The extract of leaves exhibited potent antioxidative and DPPH scavenging activities, which increased with increase of leaf maturity.
Histological studies of the pancreas earlier necrosed by alloxan showed regeneration by methanolic and aqueous extracts. A comparable regeneration was noted with aqueous and cold extracts. Reports of Terminalia catappa seeds showing aphrodisiac activities in male rates. Study of ethanolic extract of leaves yielded triterpenic acids responsible for the anti-inflammatory activity of T catappa leaves.
Study looked into T catappa as an alternative to the use of chemicals and antibiotics in the aquaculture industry. Results showed eradication of Trichodina, fish ectoparasites, at ppm. On going research is being done to isolate the active ingredients in the Indian almond for fish pathogen treatment.Talisay, indian almond, terminalia catappa, Lan ren shu: oil of Badamier, or in the Philippines, as Talisay oil.

The dye is generally applied in an aqueous solution, and requires a mordant to improve the fastness of the dye on the fiber. Talisay Leaves As Dye Benefits of Talisay Tree 1) The leaves applied to the head and sides are refreshing and sudorific – a medicine that causes or increases sweating.
2) The red leaves and fruits are used to expel worms. Usually, dye are extracted from Talisay leaves using water solvent to produce a yellow, green and black colorant which can be applied in textile materials.
One advantage of synthetic dye over natural dye is its availability in the market. Utilization Of Talisay Terminalia Catappa L Leaves As Source Of Black Dye For Textiles.
