The herb artemisia annua, which is regularly used in Chinese traditional medicine where it is called Quinghao Su, contains a powerful active component called Artemisinin. This was discovered by Tu Touyou, a Chinese pharmaceutical chemist and Nobel Prize winner who has spent her research life studying traditional Chinese medicines and herbal extracts to find substances helpful for malaria, which has always been a problem in Southern China.
Chemically, Artemisinin is a sesquiterpene lactone which has a reactive peroxide bridge in its structure, giving it its unique health-giving properties. This peroxide bridge is very rare in natural compounds, and it allows the release of reactive oxygen species in circumstances that help immune function.
