Berberine, an isoquinoline found in plants such as barberry and goldenseal, shows good antimicrobial activity against microorganisms such as E. coli and Candida albicans
Wormwood has traditionally been used to help remove parasites from the gastrointestinal tract
The active concentrate of freeze-dried garlic used is rich in alliin and alliinase, which releases high levels of allicin directly in the gut when ingested and rehydrated
Allicin has a remarkable broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity against a range of problematic bacteria, fungi (including Candida albicans) viruses and protozoa
Recommended for use in cases of gastrointestinal tract dysbiosis, where the maximum level of broad-spectrum effect is required
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
Safe with no toxicity to mammalian tissue

Pharmaxs Antimicrobial Complex contains a range of natural plant antimicrobials, which combine to give broad-spectrum activity against bacteria, yeasts, fungi, protozoa and parasites. Barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) are berberine-containing plants, traditionally used extensively as anti-infectives in herbal medicine. Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is included for its known anti-parasitic effect. Allicin, released from the freeze-dried garlic, is the most potent and broadest spectrum antimicrobial, active not only against bacteria, yeasts, fungi and protozoa but adding strong anti-viral activity to the complex.
