Grown for a period of five years before it is ready to harvest, the Buchu Leaf has formed an integral part of South African herbal remedies for generations. Now, you too can enjoy its remarkable antioxidant potency and savour its benefits to your digestive and urinary tract health.
The Buchu herb may sound incredibly tropical and remote but it has been known for centuries. And it's not just the South African natives that enjoyed its many benefits either. Its popularity has also seen it exported throughout the word since the early 1700s.
The Buchu leaf originates in the aptly named Cape Floral Kingdom, a World Heritage site in the Western Cape Mountains of Southern Africa. Popular with the Khoisan tribes local to that area, Buchu was a highly prized commodity that was considered an amazing panacea (heal-all) that could not only cure illness but promote life longevity too.
By the time Buchu was introduced to European settlers in the 18th century, it was already regarded as something of a delicacy. One story tells of a thimble of Buchu being exchanged for a whole sheep. Buchu was used to treat headaches, colds and stomach disorders.
So powerful were the remedial qualities of Buchu Leaf that is often described as the ‘world's first natural anti-inflammatory''. Chronology aside, there is no doubt, the Buchu Leaf has the ability to heal us from the inside.
Now, Swanson Full Spectrum Buchu Leaf 4:1 Extract offers you the equivalent of 400 mg of Buchu leaf in each and every capsule. Meaning that you've got a better way to take care of your GI and urinary tract daily.
So rare and treasured was Buchu Leaf in Europe when it first arrived, it was known as ‘Noble's tea' as it was only affordable to the exceptionally wealthy. Rumour has it that the Titanic was carrying eight bales of Buchu on board when it sank. Fortunately for us, times have changed a little bit and now this amazing, tropical herb is far more readily available.
When extracted, Buchu Leaf still possesses incredible healing power.
Swanson Full Spectrum Buchu Leaf 4:1 Extract may sound like a kooky exotic cure but you really will be amazed at the impact this humble leaf can have on your health and overall wellness.
