Natural Products Cancerbusch / Kankerbos 75g
Dried cancerbush (Sutherlandia frutescens), is an attractive legume with delicate red flowers pictured on the South African national postage stamp. Long used by indigenous people in South Africa to treat cancer, tuberculosis, flu, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and AIDS, researchers have recently done successful trials with this medicinal plant.
- Sutherlandia is known for its adaptogenic properties and its calming effect. No toxicity or side effect has been noted.
- Health care workers report that Sutherlandia only works when taken in appropriate doses, and when used in conjunction with a healthy diet, avoiding alcoholic beverages, recreational drugs or anything that would damage the immune system.
- Importantly, while evidence indicates Sutherlandia has an anticancer effect, and stimulates the immune system, the plant should be seen as a 'quality of life tonic' rather than a cancer cure.
Use 2-3 teaspoons of the leaf cut in 1 cup of boiling water. Infuse for 10-15 minutes. Strain. Drink 2-3 times per day.
