The Health Benefits of this Amazing Herb

The Health Benefits of this Amazing Herb

I am talking about (Artemisia annua) also known as Sweet Wormwood.

Artemisia Annua

Research over the past few decades has revealed multiple health benefits from this medicinal herb, which has a centuries-long history of use in folk medicine. In 2015, Chinese scientist Tu Youyou received a partial Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of artemisinin and dihydroartemisinic, both of which have potent malaria-fighting properties.

As reported by the University of Kentucky, “The popular malaria drug artesunate was developed from those compounds and is still used as a first-line treatment for the disease today.”

Interestingly, in addition to having a long-standing history of being used as a highly effective antiparasitic, it also has anticancer properties. Additionally, artemisia annua has antiviral activity that might be helpful against our latest viral foe. The scientific research is new however very promising.

The Critter Cleanse

There’s a powerful army at work inside you.
It’s your immune system and when it’s operating at its optimal level, it protects you from the stressors found in our crowded environment.
But if your immune system is challenged, or not functioning at its best, you may need to rely on specialized support.

In my clinic I use this wonderful herb in combination with three other formulas that are  equally beneficial for what we call our Critter Cleanse. The Critter Cleanse is 14 days long and we cycle/rotate/pulse each formula.  I recommend 3-6 cycles  for optimal results.  With all the toxins we are exposed to each and every day … The Critter Cleanse is a powerful proactive program to do once a year to keep your immune system in tip top shape.

A Closer look Artemisinin Complex

Artemisinin Complex (pronounced ar – tee – mis – i – nin) is  formulated to help protect the body from our crowded, complex environment. This product achieves this by helping the body eliminate natural toxins from the body.

What is Artemisinin Complex?

This natural supplement is an exclusive combination of Sweet Wormwood (Artemisia annua) herb and Sarsaparilla root. A  formulation that helps the body flush and cleanse naturally occurring toxins from the body.

Artemisinin has been used in China for thousands of years. Modern clinicians use Artemisinin to cleanse the blood and support the normal elimination of natural toxins from the body. Sarsaparilla is known for its ability to detox and cleanse the body’s tissue while also acting as a tonic.

Compelling Benefits of Artemisinin Complex

This formula contains herbs traditionally used to:

  • Support normal flushing of natural toxins from the body
  • Encourage healthy function of organs of elimination
  • Cleanse the blood
  • Encourage healthy bowel function
  • Support healthy digestion
  • Encourage a healthy intestinal environment

The Importance of Quality Herbal Support

Artemisinin is manufactured in Australia to the meticulous standards of international pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practice.  It is subject to stringent quality criteria, applied to both raw material and finished product.

For example, the quantity of artemisinin in Sweet Wormwood is measured initially using ultra high- performance liquid chromatography, and regularly monitored.

That is why I am a huge fan of the MediHerb line of products.  It’s not because I am an Aussie too. LOL.

There are options and choices available that are natural, plant based and combined with diet and lifestyle are very very effective.
