Furthermore, plenty of polyphenols have been also found in the artemisia plants, which serves as a remedy for maintaining health and well-being.
Artemisia contains a substance which, when it comes into contact with iron ions (which are found in certain cells, for example), breaks down into two aggressive components which rapidly kill unwanted cells or germs (e.g. bacteria, plasmodia, etc.).
What is the effect of artemisinin?
Artemisinin contains a chemically stable peroxide, which is, according to the basic rules of chemistry, simply not possible to exist. Once encountered by high concentrations of iron, artemisinin becomes unstable and its peroxide is rapidly cleaved into aggressive free radicals, which damage biological macromolecules of the surrounding cells (such as cells of the malaria parasite or cancer cells) within no time.
