Usage of Artemisia Annua Extract

Artemisia Annua (Sweet Wormwood) is a shrubby perennial native to China. The leaf of the plant contains up to 0.04 percent Artemisinin. This herb has been used over the centuries by Chinese medical practitioners. Artemisinin came to the attention of the World Health Organization in the 1970s when Quinine lost efficacy against malaria.
Artemisinin, extracted from artemisia annua extract, has been used for more than two thousand years by Chinese herbalists to treat illnesses. To assure optimal extraction of Artemesia Annua's bioactive compounds, the plants are hand-harvested when in full flower, are carefully shade-dried & cleaned of superfluous stems, and are then thoroughly extracted.
Artemisinin and its derivatives such as Artesunate, Artemether, Dihydroartemisinin, etc are a group of drugs that possess the most rapid action of all current drugs against falciparum malaria. China and Vietnam provide 70% and East Africa 20% of the raw plant material of artemisinin. Seedlings are grown in nurseries and then transplanted into fields. It takes about 8 months for them to reach full size. Artemisinin is extracted using solvent, typically hexane. And now Semi-synthetic artemisinin hits the international market and World Health Organization (WHO) accepts its legal status in anti-malarial treatment.
