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 Joint Health 375 mg. - 60 Soft Gel Vegi-Caps

Buchu Life Joint Health Capsules were developed in South Africa by Cape Kingdom Nutraceuticals (Pty) Ltd. The benefits of Buchu Life 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. Buchu Life oil found in their natural anti-inflammatory capsules is a potent inhibitor of the oxidative burst, inhibiting this response by 67% at a 1:400 dilution. As the oil is diluted out, so the inhibition decreases but is still present at 24% at a 1:3200 dilution. Buchu Life oil inhibits the release of I16 when the cells are stimulated. A 1:400 dilution of the oil inhibits the process by as much as 56% of total release. Once again, as the oil is diluted so is the inhibition (14% of total at 1:3200 dilution of oil). Buchu Life oil extract has NO significant inhibitory effects on the expression of CD11b/CD18 at the surface of neutrophils and monocytes. This implies that the cells can still become “sticky” and migrate through the blood vessel wall to the sites where they are required.

Inflammation is essentially a protective response intended to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury (microbes, toxins). The inflammatory response dilutes, neutralizes and removes the foreign agent and sets the process of tissue repair into motion. This process can be categorised as either acute or chronic depending on the time frame and the immune cells involved. Acute inflammation is relatively short in duration (minutes or days) and is characterised by the presence of fluid and predominantly neutrophils. Chronic inflammation on the other hand is characterised by an accumulation of lymphocytes and monocytes and is associated with vascular proliferation and fibrosis (loss of mobility and deformed joints).

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.

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
Take two (2) soft gel vegi-caps twice daily. Allow up to one week to experience results. Continual usage will aid in the maintenance of joint health. Not meal dependent.

Warnings

Do not use if pregnant, lactating or diagnosed with low blood pressure. Always consult your doctor or health practitioner.
