Many literatures reported that Bignonia species contain Bignoniaceae different classes of active constituents as phenylethanoids, phenolics, lignans, flavonoids, coumarins and xanthones . Additionally, they demonstrated a wide range of biological activities as cytotoxic, wound healing potential, antidiabetic, sleep induction, gastroprotection, anti-obesity and insecticidal activities.
