qinghao

qinghao

An old Chinese remedy that has finally been accepted by Western medicine. Extracts of the sweet wormwood Artemisia annua are effective against the most dangerous malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum in pateines who have become resistant to chloroquine. Artemisinins act on the malarial parasite by blocking one of the enzymes necessary for pumping the correct quantity of calcium into its cell membrane.
