The corm also has molluscicidal property (36). 37 Laggera crispate (Vahl) Hepper & J. R. I. Wood [nsukumbili lomdvuna,African beech] (Asteraceae) stem decoction is used in the treatment of ulcers (11). ) Engl. [umtfokolovu, wild grape] (Anacardiaceae) root bark concoction is used for constipation (12). The stem bark and root concoction is also used in the treatment of dysentery. The stem bark contains flavonoids, glycosides, polyphenols, steroids and tannins (15). Melia azedarach L. [umsilinga, Persian lilac] (Meliaceae) root bark infusion is for anal prolapse and diarrhoea.

The stem bark contains alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, polyphenols and steroids (12,15). The plant exhibits antimicrobial properties against some bacterial and fungal strains (51). The stem bark of the plant is also used in combination with the stem bark of Spirostachys africana Sond. (Euphorbiaceae) in the treatment of constipation (12). Urginea delagoensis Bak. [mahlanganisa, sea squill] (Hyacinthaceae) bulb decoction is used for bone fractures and also as a laxative (11,26). Diseases of the Respiratory System Artemisia afra Jacq.

Some of the commonly used processing techniques include soaking in water, boiling in alkaline or acidic solutions. A decrease in tannin contents of baobab seeds was observed after a cold-water, hot-water and hot-alkali treatment. This can be explained by several possibilities: tannins are water soluble, tannin molecules are degraded when heated, heating may cause the formation of water-soluble complexes with other macromolecules of the seeds or reaction between tannic acid and the base. Dehulling and cold-water treatment of seeds greatly reduced the activity of amylase inhibitors (14).
