About Cancer Bush Tea
Cancer bush tea is extracted from a hardy perennial shrub with orange-red flowers, called Sutherlandia frutescens. This indigenous medicinal plant is drought-resistant and is used extensively in South Africa to treat various health conditions.
The Sutherlandia plant, sometimes known as cancer bush, is commonly gathered wild and is quite popular, with more than 25 recognised names across several locations. The cancer bush plant can be found in the Northern Cape, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, and Western Cape in South Africa.
The potential of cancer bush (Sutherlandia) to help the human body employ its own immunologic and physiologic resources to help fight diseases and relieve mental and emotional stress is at the root of its healing properties.
Studies carried out on cancer bush extracts have proven it to possess antiproliferative, antiviral, anti-stress, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antibacterial, antioxidant, and antithrombotic properties. This aligns with existing traditional knowledge about the plant.
