HOW TO STEEP GUINEA HEN WEED TEA
Guinea hen/Anamu has a long history in herbal medicine in all the countries where it grows. Herbalists and natural-health practitioners have traditionally used anamu for a wide variety of conditions, including arthritis, digestive disorders, infections, diabetes, cancer, for pain relief, and to induce abortion.Over the past quarter of a century, however, modern scientific research has studied anamu intensively. Many biologically active compounds have been discovered in anamu: flavanoids, triterpenes, steroids, and sulphur compounds. The research published on anamu now validates many of the historical uses of this herb.Interestingly, the researchers found that of the 20 compounds isolated from the plant ? several of which had never been identified in nature before ? some were similar to compounds found in garlic, a plant known to have medicinal properties.
