Product focus: Anti-bacterial for fighting infections

Medicinal plants and herbal remedies have been used to treat harmful bacteria and fight infections in the body, for thousands of years. These natural solutions have been used in Traditional African Medicine to keep people safe from the effects of harmful bacteria and allow them to recover more quickly. Plants with Anti-bacterial properties can also be used to treat colds, flu and fevers.

Source of Health has carefully formulated a natural medicine, called Anti-Bacterial, which combines four herbal ingredients into one powerful herbal remedy. This product is full of beneficial antioxidants that help to rid the body of harmful bacteria and promote fast recovery from common seasonal illnesses. We recommend taking one teaspoon of our Anti-Bacterial herbal remedy in a quarter glass of water, twice a day, for maximum effect.

Ingredients in Anti-Bacterial

Anti-Bacterial is formulated from propolis and three powerful indigenous plants that have medicinal properties. Each of these natural ingredients strengthens the immune system and keeps harmful bacteria at bay. The combination of these plants result in a traditional African remedy that promotes health and increased recovery time:

  • African potato is native to South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland and Botswana. It is a popular herbal remedy, a plentiful source of antioxidants which is known to boost the immune system. This is one of the most sought-after medicinal plants for its health benefits.
  • Honeybush is commonly consumed as a tea. It grows naturally in the lowland areas of the Western Cape. (Note: we source our honeybush from sustainable suppliers). This plant is rich in antioxidants and minerals, giving it a wide range of health benefits and bacteria-fighting properties.
  • Rooibos is a popular plant in South Africa – most famous for its use in tea. It grows in the fynbos regions but is also cultivated on sustainable farms. It is rich in antioxidants and has been noted for its benefits for the heart and cholesterol.
  • Propolis extract is a wax-like substance, sustainably sourced from beehives. It is a substance produced by bees that is commonly used to provide protection from viruses, bacteria and fungi. Propolis is also an excellent wound healer.

Anti-bacterial is alcohol, preservative, herbicide and pesticide-free. It contains vegetable glycerine and purified water to give it a sweet, honey-like flavour. The vegetable glycerine is safe for diabetics and has a low effect on blood sugar levels.

Our 100% natural products contain herbal concentrates and last up to 20 days for R185, making them a cost-effective option in the traditional African medicine industry.
