This herbal water and can help to relieve symptoms of arthritis, rheumatism, high blood pressure, kidney and bladder disorders, but recent scientific research has shown the amazing results Buchu has in fighting inflammation. It has been shown that Buchu is able to switch off the genes which lead to the release of inflammatory factors from the cells that are involved in inflammation. Those cells that are involved during the acute phase of inflammation are called neutrophils, as well as those which infiltrate the tissue during the chronic inflammatory process.
The neutrophils have to leave the blood circulation in order to migrate into the tissues when a trigger is released by the injured tissues. Buchu is able to prevent this process, thereby preventing the swelling and pain normally felt during this process. In other words, Buchu is able to prevent the onset of inflammation.
If inflammation has already started, Buchu can also help with this by switching off the cells operating during the chronic inflammation phase (called monocytes). The monocytes are activated to release soluble factors and the Buchu actually switches off the genetic code that makes these factors.
