For hundreds of years, the native population have been aware of the remarkable medicinal effects of the sutherlandia plant.

The Sutherlandia Company intends to play its role in bringing this plant and many others to the wider world.

Over the past few years, the medical and scientific community have begun researching it and have discovered many startling biochemical properties... with the promise of even more to come.

However, there are other compounds contained in the Sutherlandia plant which are only beginning to be fully explored, which show evidence of beneficial effects at least of the same level as those mentioned above. Let's examine the most promising one - known as Su1.

What is Su1?
Su1 is a triterpenoid glucoside - or a starch de-branching enzyme. Its effects are suspected of being immuno-modulatory and anti-inflammatory, among other possible effects. Research into it is continuing and looks to be very promising.

What are the treatments?
Cancer treatments are numerous, and include various types of drugs, but also a form of radiation therapy known as chemotherapy, where highly targeted radiation beams are used to destroy the cancer cells whilst minimizing the damage to healthy, surrounding tissue. Unfortunately, side effects are often severe.
