PhytoArtemisinin contains pure artemisinin (Qinghaosu), the active constituent of the herb Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood) enhanced with phytosaponins. From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, artemisinin is cold. The phytosaponins, which are warm, complement this characteristic of artemisinin, resulting in a more balanced formula than pure artemisinin alone. The combination of artemisinin with phytosaponins may provide other synergistic benefits, including enhancing the activities of absorption and targeting.
Gleditsia (Gleditsia sinensis), also called Chinese honey locust, is found in the woodlands of western China. Traditionally, all parts of the gleditsia plant have been used and have variously been found to have anti-pruritic, astringent, expectorant, hemo-static, purgative and other properties. A 2002 study showed it may potentially reduce the release of histamine from mast cells.
Pure artemisinin is the active constituent of the herb Artemisia annua. Good quality A. annua contains 0.3-0.5% artemisinin, so pure artemisinin provides hundreds of times more of the active constituent artemisinin than the whole herb. Research has show artemisinin to be particularly beneficial in balancing the microbiology of the GI tract.
Our artemisinin has had independent cell tests verifying its effectiveness and we do independent potency assays on every batch, using HPLC. In addition, we have received excellent feedback from numerous practitioners who utilize artemisinin in their practice.
