The syrup made from quinces is useful against diarrhea, and it is interesting that the seeds are used in folk medicine against dysentery and gonorrhea. Also, when you sew the seeds in water, you get a specific mucous fluid that is great for inflamed skin, but if you drink a spoon from it you can ease some problems with digestion. (Do not eat the seeds themselves because they can be toxic if you take them in large quantities).
