An optimized version of the Artemisia annua plant
Formerly known as Artepharming, 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.
