Quercus infectoria is an evergreen shrub growing to 6-9 ft. (2-3 m) in height. Native to Greece, the eastern Aegean Islands, Turkey, Cyprus, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Israel, it is also found in South and Southwest Asia. Known as Asian holly oak or Aleppo oak, it has been used medicinally for centuries in Asia and has many documented pharmacological properties. Gallnuts (called Manjapani in Malaysia) are formed on the young branches by gall wasps and are used to treat hemorrhages, diarrhea, and dysentery, among other things.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
