Project Description

Scientific literature review of the historic and current medicinal uses and status of research of two related Asian plants

Two Asian plants known in Thai as White and Red Kwao Krua (Pueraria mifirica and Butea Superba respectively) have been a mainstay of traditional medicine in Thailand for many centuries with the white plant being widely accepted for its anti-aging benefits on a broad spectrum along with being of particular value to women, and the red plant having a complementary role in supporting men through the natural aging process.

A resurgence of interest in traditional ingredients over the past two decades has seen an increasing number of scientific studies conducted into these traditional claims, with results largely supporting these traditional claims - for example on one plane the identification of 17 phytoestrogen compounds in Pueraria mirifica of several orders of magnitude greater than soy isoflavones or red clover extract which are in common use.

We require an authoritative objecti9ve scientific paper written that reviews the use of these two plants historically, and then a thorough review of research that has been undertaken over the past two decades and a summary of the current position, written with correct format and citations to a level that would be of a B+ grade at least as a post graduate research/review paper in life sciences.

Whether produced as one or two separate papers, we would expect each of the two subjects would have between 500-100 words in the main article and perhaps 20-30 citations/references and would like this to be consistent with Wikipedia's citation methodology.

Ideally the contractor will be degree qualified in botany, biochemistry, pharmacology, medicine, or a relevant related field, and can point towards published academic articles that demonstrate their capability to respond to this brief completely.
