After much research and testing, Nature’s Sunshine Products proudly introduces this powerful Peruvian herb known for its immune system support.
Anamú (Petiveria alliacea) grows primarily in Peru, Cuba and the southeastern United States. Folk use suggests that people with compromised immune systems may benefit from the immune-supporting properties of the anamú leaf. Historically, the leaf powder has also been used to provide support for the structural system, specifically for the joints.
It has been used as a remedy to eliminate parasites, as an analgesic (pain-relieving) and as an anti-inflammatory, especially for arthritis and gastritis. Amazonian native people groups have also used this herb for its blood and vascular benefits.
Anamu has a long history in herbal medicine in all of the tropical countries where it grows. It is commonly used in big cities and towns in South and Central America as a natural remedy to support the immune system. Throughout Central America, Anamu is used by women to relieve birthing pains and facilitate easy childbirth. In Guatemalan herbal medicine, a tea is made from the leaves of Anamu and drank for digestive ailments. Externally they apply Anamu for muscular pain and for skin problems.
Nature’s Sunshine uses only the finest quality of pure anamú leaf. Anamú has many active constituents, including tannins, polyphenols, senfols and benzyl-2-hydrox-yethyl-trisulfide. Currently, only a few companies sell this unique herb.
