Is anyone aware if the herb artemisia or any of its derivatives destroy gut flora? Thanks.
As you know - Coartem contains the Artemether (Art derivative) plus Lumefantrine - which I've read is an antimalarial...but also antimicrobial/antibiotic.
If that's the case, then yes it can destroy gut flora.
i'm not sure if the Artemisia derivatives kill the gut bacteria. I see some mixed information when I read about
