Herbal Power for GI Balance
Artemisinin Emulsion® is a concentrated emulsified extract of Artemisia annua, a botanical used for millennia in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a remedy for inflammatory, infectious, and digestive system complaints.
Artemisinin – Artemisinin has a potent bitter flavor that activates bitter taste receptors on the tongue and in other locations throughout the body, including the gastrointestinal tract. Activation of bitter taste receptors in the gut enhances bile flow, an essential element of detoxification and digestive function.
Artemisinin promotes a healthy microbial balance by targeting opportunistic and pathogenic microbes. It inhibits inflammation triggered by bacterial endotoxin and modulates the immune system, enhancing immune tolerance.
Artemisinin may also support cognitive and metabolic health and support normal cellular growth and division.
