This super plant has been used for medicinal, herbal and culinary purposes with astounding results. Guinea Hen Weed, or Anamu, is composed of a variety of antioxidants such as tannins and flavanoids, naturally occurring steroids found in plant cell membranes, photochemicals and sulfuric compounds. The blend of these potent elements has never been seen in any plant at once known to man. These ingredients combined, act as an antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. One of the most abundant chemicals in Anamu is called Dibenzyl Trisulfide (DTS). This chemical attacks and destroys cancer cells by inhibiting a particular type of protein (called a Kinase) which exists in cancer cells and promotes cancer development. If Kinase is not destroyed in the cancer cells, it can give fuel to the cancer cells and spread throughout the body.
