Garlic pills & a bunch of lesser known supplements are available at Pharmacie de la Gare, which as the name implies is by the railway station. If you can call it that.

Mixed nuts I get at Thai Huot by the kg.

Artemisinin is a bit of a weird one, seems to be an anti-Malaria tablet? You won't need that unless you're planning some serious (and I mean absolutely deep jungle serious) trekking. If using as an anti-cancer pill, then not so sure - there's a lot of Chinese medicine shops - bring a picture of the plant (wormwood?) and they'll probably have what you want.
Thanks for the info. I want to take artemisinin as an anti-malaria agent. I’m not a fan of the chewies and I do get out there...

I honestly wouldn't bother with either - throwing it out to the forum, but I don't know anyone that has gone down with malaria in 12+ years here - including locals. You've got to be way out there or super unlucky to get malaria as far as I see it, plus those tablets knock you sideways and spoil the whole trip on the 0.0000000001% chance you might get Malaria. Just opinion of course, take it with a pinch of Himalayan pink salt!

I’ll definitely consider your advice. I suppose 12 years is plenty of time for insight. I appreciate the help 🙏🏻
