FILISA 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.

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.


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




Nothing but dried Sutherlandia Frutescens. Nothing else is needed.



"I wanted to share my experience with you and also to say thank you for your brilliant Filisa which has quite literally saved my life!"

"Have been using Simba and Filisa for a couple of years since having a bad time with glandular fever. Has really worked for me! Thank you for these great products."

"Since taking Filisa, it hasn't hidden or masked things so that you don't know how you feel. It helps you to get strength from within and helps you to look at your situation in a more positive and clearer approach."

"Filisa has sorted out my dodgy thermostat!! Thank you so much, this is a game-changer!"






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 take FILISA if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have had a bone marrow or solid organ transplant.

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.

All Little Herbal Company supplements & creams are formulated and prepared by our fully qualified pharmacist.
