The leaf nuts from this tree have a mild to moderate toxin in them that is no cause for worry with small doses but increases significantly with larger amounts being ingested.  This toxicity is only present in the raw form, which preserves the saponic glycoside.  Cooking will eliminate any dangers.  Symptoms can include:

  • Dilated Pupils
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Staggering
  • Collapse
  • Paralysis
