A divine medicinal plant

The rising star among natural remedies!

Up until Chinese pharmacologist Tu Youyou was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015,
there were probably only a few who had ever even heard of Artemisia annua, also known as annual
mugwort. Yet this medicinal plant has been used for centuries by Traditional Chinese Medicine
(TCM) as an effective remedy for malaria and other serious diseases. Recent studies even suggest
that the “crown jewel from the treasure trove of TCM” also shows promising effects in the treatment of diabetes, cancer, HIV infection and even COVID-19.
In addition to the active ingredient artemisinin, the “miracle plant” contains over 600 ingredients
that are medically significant, amongst others for their antibacterial, antiviral and immunostimulant effects and because they have virtually no side effects. Also impressive is the  plant’s high ORAC value which defines its antioxidant capacity: Its ability to eliminate free radicals protects the human body against degenerative diseases such as rheumatism or arthrosis. In addition to its effect on diabetes and cancer, Artemisia annua is also a useful remedy against allergies, borreliosis, inflammations as well as against parasites and fungal infestation.
Annual mugwort is taken as a preventive measure to strengthen the immune system as well as for

self-treatment in the form of tea, powder or capsules.

This compact guide introduces readers to this amazing medicinal plant, providing, amongst others


interesting facts about its growth, occurrence and history
comprehensive information on its ingredients, fields of application and current research
practical advice on how to grow Artemisia yourself ltivation and recipes with Artemisia
