Our premium grade Pueraria mirifica superfine powder is organic cultivated in northern Thailand.
The tuberous root of Pueraria mirifica are traditionally used in northern Thailand as a functional food and herbal medicine for longevity, especially in the regions of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. The earliest records of Pueraria mirifica use date back to the 13th Century AD. In these regions the tuber is used in recipes eaten by the elderly, especially women for the following:
- Slow aging and maintain youthful energy
- Skin suppleness and prevent wrinkles
- Prevent hair greying and encourage hair growth
- Reduce menopause symptoms
- Breast firmness and reduce sagging
Modern scientific research has confirmed that Pueraria mirifica indeed contains both phytoestrogen isoflavones as well as the uniquely important compound Miroestrol, not found in any other plant or Pueraria species and has an affinity to estrogen binding sites in the body and has a hormone rejuvenating effect even though it contains no estrogen.
Highest Quality Root Powder
Our Pueraria mirifica root powder is harvested from only mature > 6 years old tubers and tested for all major phytoestrogens including miroestrol, puerarin, diadzin, genestin, genestein and diadzein. Each batch undergoes microbiological analysis before it is released and because it is organically cultivated we also test for pesticide residues as part of our quality guarantee.
Packing: 50 grams of pure Pueraria mirifica powder comes in a bottle for Malaysian orders and an aluminium sachet for export orders and the contents may be transferred to an airtight jar.
