FILISA - Sutherlandia Frutescens

filisa-sml.jpgFILISA capsules contain Sutherlandia Frutescens, a bushy plant with vibrant red flowers that grows in Southern Africa. Sutherlandia has a long history of traditional use as it has significant anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties, and contains naturally occurring L-Canavanine and Pinitol.

Our FILISA may be able to help with the following conditions:

  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Menopausal symptoms : hot flushes, irritability
  • PMT
  • Candida
  • Cystitis
  • Herpes viruses


We have called our Sutherlandia Frutescens "Filisa", which, in Zulu, means 'to make better'. However, the ancient Zulu name for this plant is 'Insiswa', which translates as "the one which dispels the darkness".

The wives of slain Zulu warriors used to take Sutherlandia to ease their grief, and the warriors themselves used it to take the war out of them.


What is in Filisa?

Nothing but dried Sutherlandia Frutescens. Nothing else is needed.


How to take it

Take two capsules, twice a day, with meals. Can be taken safely alongside conventional anti-depressant medication. Please persevere with FILISA. For some people it will take effect quite quickly, for others it may take several weeks before the benefits are felt, as with any herbal product.

     Do not use with Warfarin or any other anti-coagulants.

     Not generally suitable for children under 12 years of age.

     Our use of vegecaps makes FILISA suitable for vegetarians. FILISA is not tested on animals.
