Artemisinin is an active constituent of the plant Artemisia annua, also known as sweet wormwood or Qinghaosu. Artemisinin is a sesquiterpene endoperoxide lactone, and the biological mechanism of action may partly be attributable to the generation of free radicals via heme-mediated or mitochondrial-activated degradation of endoperoxidase bridges. Sesquiterpene lactones are secondary metabolites of plants that play an important role in protecting plants from parasitic invaders, insects, and infection. They are bitter compounds, and as such may impact digestion in a manner similar to more commonly used digestive bitters such as gentian.
Artemisinin and its derivatives have been widely studied for their effects against Plasmodium falciparum, the protozoan parasite which causes malaria, and are recommended by the World Health Organization in combination with other therapies as first-line treatment in endemic regions. Artemisinin may impact the flora of the digestive system, genitourinary tract, and beyond, being shown to have broad microbial balancing actions. It also may impact biofilms which make infections such as Candida albicans resistant to treatment.
Because of the low bioavailability of traditional oral formulations of artemisinin, the use of derivatives such as artesunate (water-soluble) and artemether (oil-soluble) or alternate dosing strategies such as liposomes have been investigated. Liposomal delivery systems have been shown to lead to more stable artemisinin plasma concentrations, suggesting that they lead to an extended release and thereby prolonged systemic effect. Additionally, more immediate effects have also been seen with liposomal formulations than conventional artemisinin.

Our Quicksilver Delivery Systems improve upon liposomal and emulsification technology with smaller, more stable particles made from the highest-grade ingredients available. In addition to exceptional absorption rates, these very small liposomal and nanoemulsified particles enhance lymphatic circulation of nutrients and intracellular delivery. The phospholipids, inherent in the liposomal and nanoemulsified formats, nourish cell membranes, promoting proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.
