10 mg vial of freeze-dried Mugwort extract.
Freeze dried extract of Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) pollen. Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) is a plant species that is native to several regions of the world, including temperate Europe, North Africa, and Asia. It is also found in Alaska, and has been naturalized in North America. As a herbaceous perennial plant, Mugwort can grow up to 1-2 meters in height. It is characterized by its extensive rhizome system, which allows it to spread and grow in various environments. The rhizome system also helps Mugwort to survive in challenging conditions, such as during droughts or cold winters. Mugwort leaves are dark green and deeply lobed, and have a pungent aroma when crushed. The plant produces clusters of small flowers that bloom in late summer and fall.
Raw material was cultivated in Middle Europe by collecting branches of trees and put in a greenhouse until the inflorescences matured. After maturing the inflorescences were collected, sieved and extracted with acetone. The pollen have been extracted followed by filtration. They have been freeze dried after dialysis.Each product will be delivered with a certificate of analysis. If you want to receive a certificate of analysis before ordering please let us know.
Pollen is one of the most common triggers of seasonal allergies worldwide. Depending on the season, weeds, grasses and trees release pollen to fertilize their own species. The wind travels the tiny and light pollen but unfortunately they end up in our noses, eyes and lungs as well.With their powdery, granular appearance they look quite delicate and innocent. In some people they will however trigger an allergic reaction. We mostly relate to this as hay fever. Most common symptoms are a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes but sometimes also symptoms of the lower airways (asthma). In allergy-prone individuals, their immune system reacts to allergenic proteins by generation of IgE antibodies, a process called sensitization. These antibodies will bind to receptors on mast cells and basophils, the effector cells of allergic diseases. If a pollen-sensitized person then gets exposed in pollen season, these effector cells release various mediators such as histamine. These mediators together are at the basis of starting off the allergic symptoms.
