My daily picture – Geranium

Geranium, the flower with different colors of the corolla, is one of the most famous ornamental plants: grandparents kept it in the windows and the parents cultivated it for its beauty. In addition to beauty,  geranium also has therapeutic properties: they improve metabolism, prevent tumor growth and stop bleeding. Researchers have shown that all parts of the geranium are therapeutic. Leaves, flowers and roots have a rich content of starch, fatty acids, salts, tannins, vitamin C, saponins, essential oil, alkaloids and flavonoids. Flavonoids make geranium an excellent plant for the prevention and treatment of cancer due to the strong antioxidant properties of these substances.
