Jujube is a unique tree species native to China. It has strong adaptability and can grow in drought, sand and alkali. It is cultivated throughout the country and is mainly produced in Henan, Hebei, Shandong, and Shaanxi. Jujube leaves are extremely rich in chemical composition and have significant medicinal value. Through consulting the relevant data in recent years, the chemical substances in jujube leaves have been summarized and analyzed, their pharmacological mechanisms have been deeply discussed, and the application of jujube leaves in medical and health care has been explored. , providing theoretical basis for the clinical application, new drug development and comprehensive utilization of jujube leaves. The jujube leaf is the leaf of Ziziphus jujube Mill. It was first introduced in the Shennongboshi Caojing. It was harvested in the spring and summer seasons. It was freshly used or sun dried. It was warm, sweet, and spleen, lung, and two classics. With heat dissipation and dehumidification. Jujube cultivation throughout the country, and large production. The study of jujube mostly tends to its fruit, jujube fruit has a high value of food and medicinal, has received widespread attention. In contrast, the study of jujube leaves is very rare. According to reports, jujube leaves are rich in flavonoids, triterpenoids and minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, amino acids, etc., and their nutritional value and medicinal value are Very high. Jujube leaf as a rich potential resource has been buried by people for many years. According to statistics, the average annual output of jujube leaves per acre of jujube is 200kg. However, such rich natural resources are abandoned after the jujube has
matured every year, resulting in A serious waste of resources.
