Description: Casuarictin is an ellagitannin, a type of hydrolysable tannin. It can be found in Casuarina and Stachyurus species. It is formed from two hexahydroxydiphenic acid and one gallic acid units linked to a glucose molecule. It is a compound that causes the contraction of body tissues, typically used to reduce bleeding from minor abrasions
