What Is Sutherlandia Frutescens (Cancer Bush)?

Sutherlandia Frutescens, or "cancer bush" as it is known by the indigenous people of Southern Africa, has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. Its popularity has been publicly acknowledged by its appearance on a South African postage stamp.

It has powerful immune boosting properties and has been classified as an adaptogen.

(An adaptogen is an herbal substance or "tonic" that helps the body to adapt to environmental and internal stress by changing body metabolism.)

Sutherlandia is a flowering shrub of the pea family that grows up to 1.2m high and is found in its natural state only in the drier areas of the Western and Northern Cape provinces of Southern Africa. The use of medicinal preparations from the leaves has been recorded for the following conditions:

anxiety gastric ailments
arthritis heartburn
asthma hot flushes
backache hypertension
blood cleansing influenza
cancer ME
chronic fatigue syndrome peptic ulcer
depression rheumatism
diabetes (type 2) rheumatoid arthritis
edema viral hepatitis
fever wasting from cancer, TB & AIDS

It has also been used as an appetite stimulant for people wasted by disease though it does not stimulate the appetite of healthy people.

There have been no reported adverse effects of the herb. A safety study, funded by the South African Medical Council, was conducted over a period of 3 months using 16 vervet monkeys. Behaviour of the animals was monitored and blood tests as well as various physiological evaluations were normal. No toxicity was found even at large dosages.

The herbal components that make up the Sutherlandia OPC mixture are individually both effective traditional remedies. The proprietary mix combines their known effects and the following people may obtain beneficial results from the product:
