Geraniaceae is a family of flowering plants placed in the order Geraniales. P. reniformeA, belonging to the family Geraniaceae, has been used for centuries as a traditional herbal remedy in South Africa. Both the rhizome and the herb have been used for different purposes since ancient times to treat malaria, inflammation, and abdominal and uterine disorders. The root extracts have been shown to have antibacterial, antifungal, and antitubercular activities; this may justify its use by the people of South Africa in the treatment of cough and tuberculosis. Flavonoids and hydrolyzable tannins of P. reniforme showed marked antioxidant effects.
