Toute la plante est comestible
Les fleurs soignent la fièvre et la jaunisse
Le rhizome et les graines sont antioxydants
Les graines et le suc ont des propriétés tonicardiaques
Le suc soigne les vomissements
Les graines sont consommées grillées ou confites
Les étamines , très aromatiques parfument le thé au Vietnam
