Bioponic Phytoceuticals Treats Malaria in Africa

Thursday, December 27, 2007MW Logo

Bioponic Phytoceuticals launched Curemisinin for the treatment of malaria in Guinea, Africa. Bioponic, an innovative provider of natural products and patented technology serving the Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) and nutraceutical markets, announced the launch of Curemisinin, an all natural anti-malaria product that is based on three proven effective anti-malaria herbs: artemesia, turmeric and cinchona bark, uniquely extracted through the company’s proprietary extraction/distillation technologies. This binary product comprises a nasal spray (Curemisinin A) with an oral spray (Curemisinin B) to treat malaria in the quickest, most effective manner. Malaria is a disease caused by a blood parasite transmitted by mosquitoes. It is the number one killer in sub-Saharan Africa, killing more than a million people worldwide every year. The majority of those who die from malaria are African children, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Through Bioponic’s international alliance with Hyperdynamics Corp, Curemisinin is currently being disseminated free of charge in clinics located in the capital city of Guinea.

FSEvery year at about this time, the great-gifts-for-travelers lists come out. And every year, I dream of being able to justify splurging on one or more of those items--the Bose noise-cancellation headphones, the cashmere blankie, the luscious leather satchel or maybe a year's worth of airport lounge access.

But I’m happy to say that it's still possible to treat yourself (and your traveling friends, colleagues and loved ones) to wonderful swag that’s actually affordable. Here are some of my favorites, all for less than $25:

Flight Spray. You may be taken aback if someone gives you nasal spray as a gift, but for road warriors who've experienced the unpleasant consequences of dehydration, it's actually quite thoughtful. The spray not only relieves symptoms but can also help prevent colds--and it soothes if you’re flying when you already have a cold or congestion. This spray is all-natural, made from turmeric root (an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal agent), spearmint (a natural antiseptic) and purified water. The 1-ounce spray bottle is small enough to pass TSA rules about onboard liquids. $14.85 from Magellans.com.
