Buchu Materia Medica


Buchu has been used medicinally for thousands of years by the indigenous peoples of South Africa. Part of its therapeutic value is attributable to the impressive nutritional content of the leaves which contain: vitamin C, hesperidin and other bioflavonoids, polyphenols, lipids, beta-carotene, calcium, chromium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, protein, selenium, silicon, sodium, sulphur and zinc. The Khoi and San peoples considered buchu to be a panacea remedy and an aid to longevity.
