What are the active ingredients in Artemisia herbal teas?

Like all plants, Artemisia annua and afra each contain several hundred molecules. About twenty molecules active against malaria have been identified. These probably work in synergy on the parasites at their different stages of evolution. Artemisia annua contains, among others, artemisinin, a beta-hemozoin inhibitor; Artemisia afra does not. Both are effective against malaria and bilharzia.
