Super W Blend© (wormwood, quassia, and male fern) 365mg 100 Capsules

Ingredients: Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), quassia (Quassia americana) and male fern (Aspidium filix mas).  Wormwood is a strong bitter that affects the bitter-sensing taste buds on the tongue, which in turn stimulates the digestive system. This bitter taste also stimulates the production of bile by the liver. Quassia has been used in traditional preparations for centuries. It stimulates production of stomach secretions, as well as those of the liver, kidneys, gallbladder and intestines. Male fern contains filicin, filixid acid, tannin, phloroglucin derivatives and traces of essential oil.

Appearance

Wormwood (Artemisia) is a large, diverse genus of plants with about 180 species belonging to the daisy family (Asteraceae). It comprises hardy herbs and sub-shrubs known for their volatile oils. They grow in temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, usually in dry or semi-dry habitats. The fern-like leaves of many species are covered with white hairs. Quassia (Quassia amara) is a tropical American shrub or small tree having bright scarlet flowers and yielding a valuable, lustrous, fine-grained, yellowish-white wood. Male fern grows two to four feet tall. Pale green leaves, or fronds, are narrow and fringed, growing close together all the way up the stalk. Dark brown spores attach to the underside of the fronds in rows of two. The rhizomes are reddish brown, short, thick, and scaled.

History

According to the Ancients, Wormwood counteracted the effects of poisoning by hemlock, toadstools and the biting of the sea dragon. The plant was of some importance among the Mexicans, who celebrated their great festival of the Goddess of Salt by a ceremonial dance of women, who wore on their heads garlands of Wormwood. In Russian culture, the fact that Artemisia species are commonly used in medicine, and their bitter taste is associated with medicinal effects, has caused wormwood to be seen as a symbol for a "bitter truth" that must be accepted by a deluded (often self-deluded) person. This symbol has acquired a particular poignancy in modern Russian poetry, which often deals with the loss of illusory beliefs in various ideologies.

Quassia is the generic name given by Linnaeus to a small tree of Surinam in honor of Quassi or Coissi, who employed the intensely bitter bark of the tree (Quassia amara) as a remedy for fever. The original quassia was officially recognized in the London Pharmacopoeia of 1788.

For centuries, until better alternatives were discovered, Male Fern was an accepted treatment for worms. Smoke from the fern was said to drive away serpents, gnats, and "other noisome creatures." One of the most potent remedies for tapeworm ever recorded in the annals of medicine, male fern was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopeia as late as 1965. Tapeworms know no social boundaries, and even Louis XVI of France paid a kingly sum for a formula containing this medication.
