Health Benefits at a Glance:
Having a well-balanced microbial system in the body tract is essential to health. The Artemisinin Emulsion from Quicksilver Scientific contains artemisinin in liposomal form, which promotes healthy cell division, cell growth, and a balanced inflammation response. With these abilities, the active ingredient in this product can also promote a well-balanced microbiome in the gastrointestinal and urinary tract and beyond.
Why it Works:
Your body is full of microbes that can have a beneficial impact on various aspects of your health. As a matter of fact, the body couldn’t function properly without these microbes. Artemisinin is an agent extracted from a plant known as sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua) or Qinghaosu. The compound can impact the microbial ecosystem of the digestive system, genitourinary tract, blood, and beyond, as it has been shown to have broad microbial-balancing actions.
Artemisinin has been shown to be playing a role in supporting immune system function, and counteract inflammation. It also supports healthy cell growth and cell division.Furthermore, this ingredient is also a bitter compound that affects bitter receptors in the body in a fashion similar to digestive bitters. That way, it can help to restore a blocked bile flow.
This also has a beneficial effect on the microbial balance in the digestive tract as a blocked bile flow can leave the microbial system in the digestive system out of balance. This phenomenon is also known as microbial dysbiosis. Normally, it has a low bioavailability. However, when this compound is encapsulated in microscopic liposome spheres, it can be delivered directly into the cell. This, therefore, increases the availability of this ingredient in the body when delivered in liposomal forms, such as in Artemisinin Emulsion.
The Science Behind the Product:
Conventional supplements containing this ingredient have a short half-life and a low availability in the body. When artemisinin is delivered in liposomal form, it has been shown to stay for longer in the body and as a consequence, it can also have a longer-lasting effect in the body. Furthermore, because it is delivered in microscopic liposomal spheres it can also be absorbed by the lymphatic system. This, in turn, means that the liver will not have to work as hard on filtrating this compound and that it can work on filtrating other compounds more easily.
Lastly, the liposomal spheres, which this ingredient is encapsulated in, are so small that they can bypass the cell membrane and release the artemisinin compound directly inside the cells. This secures that the artemisinin can also act intracellularly.
How to Use:
- Take one teaspoon by mouth 1 to 3 times daily or as directed by your health professional. May be taken directly by mouth or mixed into water or juice (grapefruit is best). Take on an empty stomach, at least 10 minutes before meals. Store at room temperature. Do not take when pregnant or breastfeeding. It is advisable to monitor liver function enzymes during usage.
