Anti-viral Effects of Artemisinin

This article is about a powerful herb that has effectively reduced the negative impact of viral infections.

The herb I am referring to is called Artemisinin.

Artemisinin, extracted from Artemisia annua, was discovered in 1972 by Tu Youyou, who shared the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery.

In particular, it has been used for many years in Asia and Africa for the treatment of malaria and fever. And it's still considered a miracle "drug" for Malaria all around the world.

Research shows Artemisinin works in several ways against viral infections. Most importantly, it blocks viral entry into cells by inhibiting the ACE2 receptor. ACE2 receptors serve as the gateway for the entry of the virus inside the body. It also blocks viral replication inside the cell, which limits the ability of viruses to reproduce and multiply.

The herb has been investigated for its ability to have a favorable effect on immune responses to attacking, or invading, viruses.

Some common viruses Artemisinin might help prevent and/or treat include:

  • Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 (Oral HSV-1)

  • Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 (Genital HSV-2)

  • Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)

The product I recommend is Artemisinin Forte from the Australian company Mediherb.
