Artemisia annua L. is a common type of wormwood that belongs to the Asteraceae family. it is native to temperate Asia but cultivated all over the world.
Artemisinin is one of the active ingredients in Artemisia annua bio. Artemisinin and its semi-synthetic artemisinin derivatives (including dihydroartemisinin, artesunate, artemether and artemether) are also used in the production of combination therapies for the treatment of malaria (ACT = Therapy Combination to artemisinin base).
Animal studies have long shown that artemisinin and related compounds inhibit tumor growth and metastasis.
There is a lot of evidence from clinical trials that shows anticancer effects for cancer patients.
Malaria treatment experiences indicate good tolerance of artemisinin-based drugs.
Organic Artemisia annua, also known as annual mugwort and annual wormwood (Chinese: qīnghāo), is a common type of organic wormwood artemisia annua that is native to temperate Asia but cultivated around the world. It belongs to the Asteraceae family and has fern-like leaves, bright yellow flowers and a scent of camphor. Glandular structures (trichomes) producing a wide range of bioactive compounds (mainly terpenoids) can be found on the surface of leaves, stems and flowers.
Organic Artemisia annua is a plant increasingly used to treat malaria, which is, like Lyme, a spirochete disease. In the treatment of Lyme disease, it is used a lot to treat co-infections, especially Babesiosis, against which it is more effective than antibiotics. In the Augsburg clinic, artemisia annua is often used at the same time as lapacho to support its action.
Henry Lai and Narendra Singh of the University of Washington have shown the drug's effectiveness against cancer cells. The results are incredibly optimistic. In the journal Life Sciences, researchers describe how artemisinin kills all breast cancer cells within 16 hours. “Not only is the drug effective, it is very selective,” says Henry Lai. It is highly toxic to cancer cells but has minimal impact on normal cells. "
Used for 30 years against Plasmodium of malaria, artemisinin reacts with the metal ions present in high concentration in the parasite. Very active, cancer cells also have many membrane receptors which increase the concentration of metal ions inside the cell.
The researchers therefore came up with the idea of using artemisinin to kill these diseased cells.
The already impressive results against breast cancer seem even more positive against leukemia since, in this case, all the abnormal cells die within eight hours. “These are cancer cells among the most concentrated in metal ions”, explains Henry Lai who continues, “It is fascinating to think that this plant has been used by traditional Chinese medicine for two thousand years, we have simply found a new application for it. .
We too often tend to underestimate the extraordinary therapeutic potential of plants in the fight against cancer, but we must not forget that nature has had time, for millions of years, to develop very mechanisms of action. sophisticated against tumors. ”
Artemisia annua is a medicinal plant against malaria.
This plant, known in China for more than 2000 years, entered the history of the last century when, during the Vietnam War (1959-1975), the Vietcong managed to cure themselves with this plant against Malaria.

Dosage: 2 x 2 capsules per day, morning and noon.
