Artemisinin helps to support the Immune System
Artemisinin (Quinghao Su) is a an extract from the herb sweet wormwood (artemisia annua). This natural compound is helpful for the body's immune system.
The primary active ingredient in the herb artemisia annua, which is regularly used in Chinese traditional medicine, is a substance called artemisinin, also known as qinghao su. It was discovered by Chinese pharmaceutical chemist and Nobel Prize winner Tu Touyou who has spent much of her life studying traditional Chinese medicines and herbal extracts to help with malaria, which was a major problem in China's southern provinces.
Artemisinin is chemically a sesquiterpene lactone with an unusual peroxide bridge in its structure, a reactive component which is believed to be responsible for its abilities. Few other natural compounds have the same type of peroxide bridge, and it allows the compound to release reactive oxygen species in specific circumstances, helping to support the immune system.
