An optimized version of the Artemisia annua plant
Artennua is an optimized version of the Artemisia annua plant, achieved using Plant Biopharming. The improved characteristics of this optimized plant include:
- Twice the concentration of artemisinin in planta (2.5%)
- Triple the foliar mass (i.e. more artemisinin produced due to the larger leaf surface area)
- Fivefold increase in production (i.e. increase cultivation from once to five times a year)
All our methods are 100% natural, and the leaves are harvested at the optimal time when artemisinin synthesis peaks (just before flowering).
All in all, Artennua is a better quality plant with higher concentrations of artemisinin and a faster production time, thus eliminating the challenges associated to the cultivation and use of Artemisia annua for therapeutic purposes.
