The pueraria mirifica or kwao krua (called in Thai) was found and grown in the northern highland. Native women have used this plant for health wellness and breast enlargement over a century.
More than 700 acres are used in the farming of this herb in Changrai (northern part of Thailand) through organic cultivation. Through scientific research, its effectiveness was confirmed in various countries and the plant has become a studied subject in universities of Thailand.
The valuable compounds found in pueraria mirifica, miroestrol and deoxymiroestrol, are different and possess highest estrogenic activity among the known phytoestrogen (natural plant estrogen) plants. It has structural similarity to estradiol of the main human estrogen in women bodies, which can bind the female estrogen receptor at the breast tissues.
Other phyto-chemicals are: Isoflavones and groups of phytoestrogens e.g. Genistein, Daidzein, Daizin, Genistin and Coumestrol are usually found in soy plant.
