Pure artemisinin or Qinghaosu, the active constituent of the herb sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua), and oil derived from the same plant, total 200 mg of material per capsule. Good quality Artemisia annua contains 0.3-0.5% artemisinin, so pure artemisinin provides hundreds of times more of the active constituent artemisinin than the whole herb itself.
NutriCology introduced artemisinin to the U.S. market more than a decade ago. NutriCology does independent potency assays on every batch (using HPLC), and independent tests verify its effectiveness. NutriCology artemisinin is minimum 98.5% pure, and does not contain thujone. For more information about quality of artemisinin, see High Quality Artemisinin.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, 1 capsule one or two times daily before meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Artemisinin is best taken as part of a program that includes appropriate liver support nutrients.
CAUTION: Not indicated for pregnant or nursing women. It may be wise to work with a healthcare practitioner to monitor liver enzymes and hemoglobin when using this product. Combining with antioxidants or iron may theoretically decrease effectiveness. Detoxification reactions may be experienced by some individuals. In rare cases may cause idiosyncratic liver dysfunction.
