About Buchu Life

The roots of Buchu can be traced to the Cape Floral Kingdom, a World Heritage site situated in the Western Cape Mountains of Southern Africa. It was here in the early 1700's, that the indigenous Khoisan people introduced Buchu to the first Cape settlers. The Khoisan considered the herb to be a cure for all ills and an aid to longevity. Buchu was highly prized and a scarce commodity. So much so that a thimbleful could be exchanged for an entire sheep.

    Buchu Life Sports Gel has shown to be fast acting in reducing pain and inflammation, this natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory product is recommended for use as an antiseptic and antifungal gel for open wounds, burns, bruising, nappy rash, and control of eczema. Buchu Life Sports Gel can also be used to alleviate joint or muscular pain. The general term used to describe the ability of any product to either kill or prevent the replication of an infectious agent is anti-infective. If the product targets bacteria specifically, then such products are called antibiotics whereas if the agent is a fungus, then it is referred to as an antifungal. Similarly, any product active against a specific virus would be called an antiviral agent. BuchuLife First Aid Gel has potent anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties enabling it to act as a natural antibiotic. Buchu Gel was developed in South Africa by Cape Kingdom Nutraceuticals (Pty) Ltd. The benefits of BuchuLife products have been scientifically researched by the Sports Science Institute of the University of Cape Town and by Professor Patrick Bouic, Head of Immunology at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Academic Hospital.

    The History of Buchu:
    The roots of Buchu can be traced to the Cape Floral Kingdom, a World Heritage site situated in the Western Cape Mountains of Southern Africa. It was here in the early 1700's, that the indigenous Khoisan people introduced Buchu to the first Cape settlers. The Khoisan considered the herb to be a cure for all ills and an aid to longevity. Buchu was highly prized and a scarce commodity. So much so that a thimbleful could be exchanged for an entire sheep.

    1500s: Buchu is used by the native Khoisan people of Southern Africa to treat and heal wounds.

    1660s: Dutch settlers come into contact with buchu. Employees from the Dutch East India Company learn of the benefits of buchu.

    1692: Buchu is given its first scientific name, Spirea Africana Odarata, folis pilosis by Heinrich Bernhard Oldenland, the master gardener of the Dutch East India Company in the Cape.

    1706: Buchu is grown in Amsterdam University's medical garden by Capsar Commelijn.

    1759: Buchu migrates from the Dutch Gardens to Great Britain, where it is grown in the Royal Botanical Gardens.

    1780: Buchu leaves are introduced to the wealthy European market for use in "Noble's Tea". At the time, buchu was highly prized and a scarce commodity. So much so that a thimbleful could be exchanged for an entire sheep.

    1811: William Burchell observes and documents the Khoisan using buchu vinegar to wash, clean and heal wounds.

    1822: The Monthly Gazette of Health editor, Dr. Richard Reece, investigates the medical benefits of buchu. The drug house Burchell's introduces Buchu to the medical profession.

    1833: Dr. Reece publishes his findings in his Medical Guide stating that buchu can be used for various ailments such as genito-urinary problems, bowel and prostate ailments, wounds as well as rheumatism.

    1846: Henry T. Helmbold popularizes buchu extract for the treatment of ailments with "Helmbold's Extract Buchu". Buchu is introduced in America where it is used during the Civil War to treat pain and inflammation.

    1888-1911: Buchu is published in the American Journal of Pharmacy (1888), the King's American Dispensatory (1898), and the British Pharmaceutical Codex (1911).

    1914: During World War I, experiments are conducted at the National Botanical Gardens of South Africa at Kirstenbosch to cultivate buchu for commercial purposes.

    2010: Cape Kingdom revives the medicinal uses of buchu providing proven scientific evidence and results.

    About Buchu Life:

    Ideal Growing Location:
    Their farms are located in South Africas Western Cape Province on the Fynbos strip - the only area in Sub-Saharan Africa to receive winter rainfall with a mild, frost-free winter temperature of between 43F and 63F and summer temperatures between 59F and 84C. In the summer, the wind blows from the south-east, bringing with it cool mist and clouds which, together with the Mediterranean climate, has proven ideal for the cultivation of Buchu.

    Carefully Nurtured from Day 1:
    The seedlings are very susceptible to changes in environmental conditions during the first 10 weeks of growth. This results in many of the seedlings perishing at this early stage in their development. At BuchuLife, they provide a natural yet safe environment for them to grow in where they carefully control irrigation and sun exposure using a process called solarization.

    Organically Grown:
    Since their buchu plants are organically grown, the bees are safe from being contaminated by pesticides and chemicals. The organic farming processes also allows the bees to perform their natural task of pollination of the buchu plants. The bees then also use the nectar from the buchu flowers in conjunction with other fynbos plants to produce fynbos honey.

    Clean & Sterile Distillation:
    After harvest, the buchu leaves are placed into stainless steel tanks where steam distillation takes place. Only the highest grade stainless steel is used to ensure a clean and sterile environment.

    Suggested Use
    A thin layer should be applied to the skin where needed. Use once or several times daily as required. Sport Gel is safe for adults and children.

    Warnings

    Keep out of eyes. If contact occurs, rinse throughly with water. Do not ingest.

      I recommend this product!
      I have severe osteoarthritis, and I have tried all kinds of medication from my doctors to help with the pain, and nothing really worked. I received a sample of Buchu Life and I tried it on my swollen joints and I could not believe how fast the swelling went down and the pain sort of vanished almost instantly, I was able to move around , and do things with out pain for over 6 hours. I absolutely love this product and the best part is that it is all natural, no chemicals like the pills I was taking. I highly recommend this product to those who have severe pain.
