Glamour (South Africa) - - All about you -

What is it? Buchu is a nat­u­ral rem­edy that has a po­tent cock­tail of vi­ta­mins and min­er­als, in­clud­ing quercetin, rutin, hes­peridin, dios­min and vi­ta­mins A, B and E. It’s ac­tu­ally been around since the 1860s.

What does it do? With win­ter upon us, it can help pre­vent and fight off those pesky colds and flus. It also acts as an anti-in­flam­ma­tory for aches and pains, an­ti­his­tamine for al­ler­gies and as a di­uretic for flush­ing out tox­ins.

How to take it? You can pro­mote over­all well­be­ing by in­cor­po­rat­ing buchu into your daily diet through detox teas and herbal wa­ters. Gels and cap­sules are also avail­able for joint pain and UTI re­lief.
