Abstract the  report  from :  Secret of Pueraria Mirifica Revealed

Somkhit Banomyong, Chairman,  SmithNaturals Co., Ltd  (Thailand) April 11, 2001 )

The History of Research and

Study on Pueraria Mirifica

(The scientific name: Pueraria Mirifica A Shaw. et Suvatabhandu)


There are 13 species of Pueraria ‘s family in Thailand as the following:

* But only the Pueraria Mirifica has the "Unique Phtyo-estrogens :  Deoxymiroestrol & Miroestrol which posses the highest estrogenic activity among the known phyto-estrogens due to "molecule structural similarity to estradiol".  *


1) Pueraria Mirifica  A Shaw et Suvatabhandu <The Only one that have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol

2) Pueraria Alopecuroides Craib  < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

3) Pueraria Candollei Graph. Ex. Benth < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

4) Pueraria Imbricata Van der Maesen sp. Nov.< Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

5) Pueraria Lobata < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

6) Pueraria Lobata Var. Montana < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

7) Pueraria Lobata Var. Thomsoni < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

8) Pueraria Var. Phaseoloides < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

10) Pueraria Var. Subspicata < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

12) Pueraria Rigens < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen

13) Pueraria Stricta < Do Not Have Miroestrol & Deoxymiroestrol, unique phytoestrogen


Most Pueraria have similar outer appearances. In Thailand, there is more Pueraria Candollie, than Pueraria Mirifica and it (Pueraria Candollie) is much easier to locate. Therefore, most entrepreneurs will use Pueraria Candollie as a raw material in their products production, assuming it is Pueraria Mirifica. 


Local names of Pueraria Mirifica are different, according to the geography. For example, in the Norh it is called “Jan Krua”,  in the Northeast it is called “Tan Krua”, and the South it is called “Tan Chom Thong”. It is would be interesting to study what kind of Pueraria, among the 13 species mentioned, fits in the local name of Pueraria in each region.


It is recorded that in Kanjanaburi province, there are 4 different species of Pueraria having similar flowers, pods, leaves, and tuberous roots; and 3 of them found in the same area. MOST LOCAL Pueraria Mirifica SUPPLIERS DO NOT RECOGNIZE BOTANICAL DIFFERENCES  and supply crude Pueraria in an unimaginable combination, labled as Pueraria Mirifica. Customers of these suppliers would find it impossible to notice the differences when the crude is dried and ground, ready for shipment for the next process of manufacture.


To develop safe and effective applications of Pueraria, the most important step is to identify the correct species of Pueraria, which, in this case, is Pueraria Mirifica. The primary resource person in this field is a taxonomist, from the Forest Department, Ministry of Agriculture, Thailand.


Although Pueraria Mirifica has been in Thailand for more than 100 Years,  but the Scientific Study of this Plant (Pueraria Mirifica) began 70 Years ago.  In 1931, Luang Anusan Sunthorn mentioned Pueraria Mirifica as A SOURCE OF REJUVENATION.



 The development of Study & Research on Pueraria Mirifica is as follows:


  • 1931  -  Luang Anusan Sunthorn mentioned Pueraria Mirifica as a source of rejuvenation and good health

  • 1932  -  Phaya Vinji reported that Pueraria Mirifica prolongs life and enhances vitality

  • 1938  -  Dr. Dhara Sukhawachana reported that Pueraria Mirifica has estrogenic effects.


These reports prove that Thai people have known that Pueraria Mirifica has estrogenic properties for more than 60 years.


Before 1952,  Pueraria Mirifica was misidentified as Butea Superba, whish is known as “Kwaao Khrua Dang “ in Thailand.


  • 1952  -  A new species of  Pueraria was found and was subsequently named as “ Pueraria Mirifica A. Shaw et Suvatabhandu”

  • 1960  -  Cain JC. Discovered an important chemical constituent in Pueraria Mirifica, the Miroestrol.

  • 1963  -  The story of Pueraria Mirifica which has Miroestrol as an active ingredient spread.


Significance of Miroestrol found in Pueraria Mirifica.  Further research was study whether other species of Pueraria family contained Miroestrol, as in the Pueraria Mirifica.


  • 1981  -  Records of more than 20 years of studies of the effect of  Pueraria Mirifica in animal by Dr. Yuttan Smitasiri were revealed.

  • 2000  -  Additional significant chemical constituents in Pueraria Mirifica were discovered by Dr. Chiyo (the Deoxymiroestrol)  and  Dr. Sunee ( the Puemiricarpene) (7)
