- Pelargonium reniforme is a medicinal plant known to generations of Khoi/San descendants and Xhosa traditional healers for its health-supporting properties. Also known as 'Umckaloabo,' it is traditionally used for a range of therapeutic functions and is well known for its supportive capacity on liver functioning and as a digestive tonic. This species of pelargonium is indigenous to the Eastern Cape of South Africa and grows wild, sending out long bulbous roots deep into the ground. The active ingredients are found in the bitter tasting root of the plant. Recent studies have indicated this herb can be beneficial in supporting the body’s ability to maintain balance between various body systems. (Matthys H, et al. "Efficacy and safety of an extract of Pelargonium sidoides (EPs 7630) in adults with acute bronchitis. A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial." Phytomedicine. 2003;10(suppl 4):7–17).

Digestion is the process by which the body breaks down the food we eat into usable components. When we put food into our mouths digestion has already started, because digestion means breaking food down into smaller molecules, which are then used to fuel the body at many levels.
Although we might not think of it as such, the stomach is a muscular organ that contracts and expands in order to mix the food with digestive juices. The most important part of digestion takes place in the small intestine, where most chemical digestion and absorption of food occurs. As the liquid food paste travels through the small intestine, nutrients are absorbed and enter the bloodstream, traveling to all the body's cells and systems to maintain health. The intestines complete the process of digestion.
