Cultivation details
Landscape Uses:Border, Container, Woodland garden. Prefers a light rich slightly alkaline soil that is not too dry, and a warm sunny position[1, 200]. Plants are intolerant of root disturbance and should be planted out into their permanent positions when young[1]. This species has been cultivated for its edible root in Japan[46, 238]. The flowers have a sweet but refreshing perfume[245]. This is the only member of the genus with scented flowers[245]. The young growth is extremely attractive to slugs, they have been known to destroy even mature plants[K]. Special Features: Not North American native, Naturalizing, Suitable for cut flowers, Fragrant flowers.
Propagation
Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe[200]. The seed can also be sown in spring. Surface sow 2 - 3 seeds per pot in the spring in order to avoid transplanting[133]. We have found that if transplanted when very small seedlings grow away without difficulty[K]. Germinates in 1 - 3 months at 10°c[133]. Plant out into their permanent positions whilst young. Basal cuttings in spring[K]. Division in spring - very difficult because the plant dislikes root disturbance[1]..

AIGI supply Giant Knotweed Extract Resveratrol 10%~98% Profile: Product Specification : Resveratrol 10%~98% Latin Name: Polygonum Cuspidatum Product Type: White powdered extract Part of the Plant Used: Root Extract Method: Alcohol What is the Giant Knotweed Extract? Giant knotweed is an east Asian species (Polygonum cuspidatum), belonging to the Polygonaceae family. Documented uses in traditional Chinese medicine date to the first century BC, and contemporary medical uses supported by clinical results include acute microbial infections or viral hepatitis, chemo- or radiation-induced leukocytopenia, atherosclerosis, and hyperlipidemia. Giant knotweed extract has exhibited antitussive, antihistaminic, hypotensive, vasodilating, cytotoxic, and antioxidant properties, among others. Giant knotweed extract is also a concentrated source of resveratrol, an antioxidant phenol produced in response to fungi. Resveratrol has also shown antimutagenic activity in bioassays conducted on bacteria in vitro. And, in a recent investigation conducted in vivo and in vitro, resveratrol displayed chemopreventive effects at three critical stages of carcinogenesis. Specifically, resveratrol was found to 1) induce phase II drug metabolizing enzymes; 2) mediate anti-inflammatory effects and inhibit cyclooxygenase and hydro-peroxidase (antipromotion); and 3) induce human promyelocytic leukemia cell diferentiation. Resveratrol was also found to inhibit the development of preneoplastic lesions in vitro and tumorigenesis in vivo. Very recently, it was reported that Giant knotweed extract is one of the best active-oxygen scavengers for the prevention of skin aging induced by UV-irradiation and free radical. Experiments conducted in vivo indicate that resveratrol is a potent vasodilator and inhibitor of platelet aggregation. Recent work in dogs and humans indicate that other concentrated sources of resveratrol eliminate cyclic blood-flow reductions caused by platelet-mediated thrombosis.

AIGI supply Garcinia Cambogia P.E. 60% HCA Profile: Product Specification : 60% HCA Latin Name: Garcinia Cambogia. Product Type: Fine gray white powdered extract Part of the Plant Used: Fruit Extract Method: Grain Alcohol/Water What is Garcinia Cambogia extract? Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), is the active ingredient extracted from the rind of a little pumpkin-like fruit, Garcinia cambogia, from India and Southeast Asia. Dietary supplements and a wide variety of weight loss formulas, contain Garcinia extract to inhibit fat production and suppress appetite. A number of products include extracts (about 50% HCA) under the brand names Citrin (Sabinsa) and CitriMax (InterHealth) and a new one called Regulator is a 98% pure potassium HCA from a small Irish supplement company. HCA can inhibit an enzyme in cells, citrate lyase, which is needed for the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. In the cell, carbohydrates are broken down into citrate compounds, which are then converted (by citrate lyase) into another compound; acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA) ¨C the metabolic building block for fat synthesis. By blocking the conversion of citrate into acetyl-CoA, HCA can suppress fat synthesis. Acetyl CoA is further converted into malonyl CoA, a compound which may block the actions of carnitine acyltransferase in shuttling fatty acids into the mitochondria to be burned. It is important to note, however, that the citrate lyase enzyme, is only significantly active under conditions of carbohydrate overconsumption. In others words, unless you¡¯re eating a lot of carbohydrate-type foods (bagels, pasta, potatoes), and overloading your carbohydrate storage capacity (muscle and liver glycogen stores) there is no significant conversion of carbohydrates into fatty acids anyway (and HCA may not work for you). If, however, you¡¯re chowing down on low-fat high-carb foods at every meal, then your glycogen stores will be over-flowing and your citrate lyase enzymes are going to be working over time converting those excess carbs to fat. OK, so now that you¡¯ve blocked the fat production, you have to do something with those excess carbs. They can¡¯t be stored as glycogen because those stores in liver and muscle are already full, so it is thought that the body disposes of them by increasing carbohydrate oxidation (burning them). As a result of these fully loaded glycogen stores, some researchers have suggested that a "side effect" of HCA supplementation may be a suppression of appetite ¨C which would reduce food intake and promote weight loss. There are no serious adverse side effects associated with intake of Garcinia cambogia or hydroxycitric acid supplements aside form some minor gastrointestinal distress induced by high doses. Where will be Garcinia Cambogia extract used to? Promotes weight loss Suppresses appetite Reduces blood lipids Increases fat oxidation/mobilization Promotes glycogen synthesis Increases energy levels Packing Detail Packed in paper-drums and two plastic-bags inside. Net Weight: 25kgs/drum. I.D. 40CmX50CM Storage Situation Stored in a cool and dry well-closed container, keep away from moisture and strong light / heat.
