Pueraria Mirifica Raw Material.

Perhaps the most significant effect derived from Pueraria mirifica (PM) is best summarized in the title of an article published in April 2008 by the Health Sciences Institute: “Obscure Thai ‘super herb’ beats Big Pharma’s hormone replacement therapy.” Moreover, in the Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research published a study in September 2009, entitled “The mutagenic and antimutagenic effects of the traditional phytoestrogen-rich herbs, Pueraria mirifica and Pueraria lobata.” was supporting that Pueraria mirifica can be used as safe dietary supplements and cosmetics. And in Thailand, the Ministry of Public Health (similar to the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the U.S.) officially endorses Pueraria mirifica is safety and efficacy.  It is for good reason that this extraordinary herb was given a species name (mirifica) that translates as “miracle-maker.” (Pueraria is simply the Latin name for the climbing vine commonly known as kudzu.)
