• What is Pueraria Mirifica

    What is Pueraria Mirifica? Pueraria mirifica, also known as กวาวเครือ Kwao Krua, is a plant found in northern and north eastern Thailand and Myanmar. In Thailand, the plant is known as “Kwao Krua” and has a history of use in folk medicine.

    Approximately 700 years ago the value of Pueraria Mirifica, also known as Kwao Krua was recognized by a health practitioner in northern Thailand. During the refurbishing of a Buddhist monastery in northern Thailand a hidden compartment was found with writings that spoke of the health benefits of Pueraria Mirifica. It was written that the plant is the optimal treatment for senile dementia and memory loss, diseases of the intestinal tract including parasite infestations, and that it aids in retention of skin tone and elasticity. Since then, significant research has clarified the health benefits of Pueraria Mirifica and found many of the early proclamations to be true.

    Since it is found deep within the bush, its notoriety has only been more widely recognized for approximately 80 years. In 1931, Luang Anusan Suntara published a pamphlet discussing the health benefits of Kwao Krua. He claimed it reduced wrinkles, got rid of gray hair, improved eyesight and memory, amongst other benefits. In 1952 Dr. Kerr, the Director of the Botanical Section of the Journal of the Siam Society, raised the profile of the plant when he identified the white variety of Kwao Krua to be Pueraria Mirifica. Dr. Kerr characterized the plant as the “Fountain of Youth” for men and women.

    Kwao Krua is a plant indigenous to the forests of northern Thailand. There are four varieties of Kwao Krua: white, red, black and grey. White Kwao Krua is also known as Pueraria Mirifica. It is a white tuberous root (pictured below). The shrub it grows is unassuming in appearance. It is the most coveted type of Kwao Krua since it contains the most phytochemicals that are key to the health benefits associated with the plant.

    Once harvested, the root is shredded, dried and typically powdered. Special care is taken during this process to retain the integrity and potency of the beneficial substances in the root. With modern technology we can now harvest and process the root using the utmost care to ensure the full benefits of Pueraria Mirifica are delivered to you.

    Recently, Pueraria Mirifica has been coveted for its abilities to naturally enlarge bust size. Unlike many natural breast enlargement substances, Pueraria Mirifica has a remarkably high success rate. In the pages to follow you will learn about the scientific reasons and research that support this claim as well as more detail into the other beneficial effects of Pueraria Mirifica.
