Abstract: The present assessment summarizes the Plant taxonomy, botanical distribution, ethno medicinal uses, Bergia capensis (B. capensis) and Acalypha communis (A. communis), pharmacology, and toxicity review of different extracts and compounds of Bergia capensis. Several phytochemical compounds including alkaloids, anthraquinones, coumarins, flavonoids, glycoflavonoids, glycosides, iridoids, limonoids, polyphenols, phytosteroids, pregnane, saponins, tannins, and withanoides have been identified from different plant parts of the species. In the past years, research on Bergia capensis &Acalypha communis focused on evaluating pharmacological activities of the different extracts, and compounds isolated from the species. As revealed by the present review, the vast majority of the documented ethnopharmacological studies reported are in vitro and some in vitro studies. This review covers the traditional uses, the phytochemical and pharmacological investigations of the bergia capensis and Acalypha communisit was valuable to elaborate the therapeutic value of Bergia capensis by conducting numerous preclinical and clinical evaluations for social benefit.
