Description Usage Supplement Facts Artemisinin is a active constituent of the plant Artemisia annual, also know as sweet wormwood or Qinghaosu. Aretmisinin is a bitter compound and may impact digestion in a manner similar to digestive bitters. Artemisinin and its derivatives have been widely studied for their effects agains Plasmodium falciparum, the protozoan parasite which causes malaria. Artemisinin-based combination therapies are recommended by the World Health Organization as firs-line treatments for uncomplicated malaria in endemic regions. Artemisinin may impact the flora of the digestive system, genitourinary tract and beyond, having activity against microbes including Helicobacter pylori, Escherichia coli UPED, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.. It also may impact biofilms which make infections such as Candida albicans resistant to treatment. Because of the low bioavailability of traditional oral formulation of artemisinin, other derivatives and the plant have been investigated but have been found to offer no more than 30% bioavailability. Liposomal delivery systems have been shown to lead to more stable artemisinin plasma concentrations, suggesting that they lead to an extended release and thereby prolonged therapeutic effect. Quicksilver's Etheric Delivery™ Phospholipid Encapsulation System brings the power of intra-venous therapy into a convenient oral delivery.* It improves upon liposomal technology with smaller, more stable, single-layer spheres made from the highest-grade ingredients available. In addition to exceptional absorption rates, the nanospheres that Quicksilver produces have demonstrated the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly and enhance lymphatic circulation of nutrients. Additionally, the phospholipids that compose the liposome shell feed the cell membranes. This ensures the proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
